At Lake Harriet Veterinary, we work as a team: our veterinarians whose diverse areas of expertise and interests complement one another, our skilled and kind supporting staff, and you, the owners. Every animal is unique, so our care is individualized to meet your pet’s specific needs. We heartily give out cookies, but never cookie-cutter treatments!
Our collective experience and up-to-date knowledge allows us to use the best of both conventional and integrative medicine, and help you make informed decisions about your pet’s wellness.
We know that vet visits can be stressful, so everyone is trained in gentle low-stress handling techniques that help our (sometimes scared) patients feel comfortable and safe. You can both breathe easy at our earth-friendly clinic with lots of natural light, cushioned surfaces, plenty of healthy treats, and big smiles to help make your visit a positive experience.
Exams for preventative care, emergent issues, or chronic disease (30 minutes)
During this visit we will explore options and create a clear and realistic medical plan for your pet.
Most common surgeries are performed right here at our clinic: spays, neuters, tumor removals, and removal of foreign objects (socks, toys, etc.) from the digestive tract.
Laser therapy is often used as part of a management plan for arthritis, weakness and mobility problems. It is also an effective tool for non-healing wounds, infections, and for post-operative use on incisions. Our patients experience no pain or discomfort from treatments and owners will usually sit with their pets during the sessions. Our laser machine is a Class 4.
