Lakeshore Animal Clinic
Boarding & Grooming
You may recognize our staff. Since this building has been a veterinary clinic
since 1978 we have been lucky enough to employ some of the fantastic,
well-trained staff from previous years that the Lake Cities clients loved.
Together with the new faces, I’m convinced we have THE BEST TEAM.
I’m so very proud of the quality care this team is committed to give you
and your precious pets. We all have the unified goal to make this
the best facility you will ever visit.
