COVID 19 IMPACT ON LAKESIDE VETS   MARCH 28, 2020

We continue to be open during our regular working hours to provide care for our current client’s pets who need emergency or urgent care, and to sell medication and products.  Young animal care and Rabies vaccines are also important.  Please call if you have any questions.

Our current hours are now Mon, Tues, Thurs 8 am to 5 pm. Wed and Fri 8 am to 3 pm. For the time being, the clinic will be closed on Saturday.

Our car side service has been going very well and we are so thankful for all the kindness, understanding and loyalty of our wonderful clients.  Hopefully this will keep us all safe and able to continue providing essential care to our patients.

Given the many unknowns surrounding Coronavirus and its spread, Lakeside Vets will be proactive in slowing the spread in our community by no longer allowing clients  in the clinic, i.e. in the waiting room and exam rooms, for the time being. We will continue to accept surgical patients and emergencies from established clients between 8 am and 5 pm Mon through Fri as long as we are able, but routine appointments (including acupuncture) will be asked to reschedule at your convenience.

In order to ensure the safety of all our clients, our staff and doctors, Lakeside Vets asks that all clients wait in their cars with their pets when coming to the clinic. Staff will gladly come to you, and are also happy to speak with you over the phone, even if you are just outside.

PLEASE mention if you or any family members are ill when you come, as we will take extra precautions. We will return your pet promptly after the appointment, during which you are welcome to FaceTime or Skype if you would like to and we are able to.

If you are picking up product, medications or food, we will bring it out to you. If you could call ahead letting us know you are coming and what you need, we would really appreciate it. Our mobile credit card reader allows us to check out “car side”, and of course cash is always accepted.

This situation is unfolding daily, and changes are exponential; although these precautions may seem overly cautious, we would rather err on that side. We appreciate all our clients so much, and we hope that things change for the better soon, with as few people affected as possible. We also appreciate your patience and cooperation and we navigate through uncharted waters.

Although human health comes first, the health and well being of our animal friends remains very, very important to us and we will do all we can to ensure their health and comfort during this uncertain time.

Sincerely,

Dr Eleanor Sabean

Owner, Lakeside Vets

About Us

Lakeside Veterinary Clinic is a small animal veterinary clinic providing comprehensive preventative, medical, surgical and dental care. Dr Sabean is also licensed in Medical Veterinary Acupuncture (MAV) for pets through CuraCore.

We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic tests which are available right in the clinic (such as X rays and blood tests); we also use external laboratories for specialized tests when needed. We work closely with specialists when more advanced diagnostic procedures or treatments are required.
 

Our clinic includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house digital x-ray capabilities, state of the art dental equipment including dental Xray, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor kennels with outdoor walking areas.  We carry Hill's Science Diet prescription diets, in addition to prescription diets by Purina and Royal Canin.

At Lakeside Veterinary Clinic we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of healthy years. We believe quality of life matters. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy through affordable preventative care.
