Mission Statement

At Lake Forest Animal Hospital our mission is to provide you and your pet with the most comprehensive and highest quality care possible. The health and comfort of your pet is of the highest priority. We’ve set our standards high and hope to exceed your expectation on every visit.

From the moment you and your pet arrive at our facility our intent is to make the pet and human veterinary experience as pleasant as possible while practicing a high standard of veterinary medicine. We recognize that each pet and pet owner are unique and therefore require an individualized level of interaction and program of care. This means paying attention to details, listening carefully, communicating properly, and being available for consultation, all while interacting with you and your pet in a compassionate and accommodating manner . From our friendly reception staff to our experienced veterinary technicians to our knowledgeable compassionate doctors, our entire team is dedicated to your pet’s healthcare.

One example of the customized care we provide is special drop-off and pick-up times for sick or anxious pets. We offer visitation hours for hospitalized pets so that their families can spend time with their pet and have peace of mind that their pet is being lovingly cared for. Another important feature of our pet care is making the pet’s family part of their care team through client education, by taking the time to demonstrate at-home care and set your pet up for success and good health in the home. If you are having difficulty medicating your pet at home, you are more than welcome to bring your pet in to be medicated at no charge. We are always happy to discuss training and behavioral issues and make recommendations so that your pet and your family can live in harmony in the home. We offer boarding, as well as medical boarding for pets with chronic illness or elderly pets, which allows your pet to receive medical supervision while you are out of town. We also offer grooming services, including medical grooming for various issues your pet may be dealing with.

Our experienced and dedicated staff are ever mindful of the importance of the human-animal bond. Our goal is to combine the art and science of veterinary medicine with compassion and wisdom to bring a complete package of pet care to our community.
