Meet our Veterinarians!
Your pet will receive outstanding veterinary medical care at Lakewood Animal Health Center. The four veterinarians take a team-oriented approach to each patient. The veterinarians work a three to four day shift that allows them a positive life balance. Each doctor approaches each patient with fresh enthusiasm and concern. During necessary hospitalization of a patient, two doctors will collaborate regarding diagnosis, treatment, and the best care options. The doctors love what they do and it is reflected in every relationship…patient-veterinarian-owner-family.
