We're pleased to offer the following services at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital
Our staff are fully trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such as snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
At Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital, we care for cats, dogs and bunnies.

Dentistry and prevention
Keeping teeth healthy is just as important for your pet as it is for you. At Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital, we recommend a dental routine that pet owners can do at home to prevent dental problems. Your veterinarian may recommend dental chews, regular tooth brushing, tooth pastes and/or oral rinses to help maintain your pet’s good oral health.
If a dental cleaning becomes necessary, your pet’s teeth are thoroughly scaled and polished using equipment not unlike what your dentist uses. And if extractions are needed our digital dental x-ray machine provides specific information about the health of your pet’s mouth and teeth that cannot be determined through visual examination alone.
Annual Vaccines and Wellness Exams
Not only is vaccinating your pet required by law but it will help prevent them from getting sick. Our vaccinations also come with a full exam. Regular wellness examinations will help detect problems such as lumps and bumps, dental disease, skin problems or any other issues that may not be detected at home.
Soft Tissue Surgery
Our veterinary team has extensive experience and training in a broad spectrum of routine and emergency surgeries. Pre-surgical blood analysis is recommended to alert the veterinarian to any pre-existing conditions that may be complicated by surgery or anesthesia.
We strive to provide the safest anesthesia and a minimum of one staff member is dedicated to monitoring your pet’s breathing, blood pressure and heart rate throughout and after the procedure.
Spay and Neuter
In addition to preventing the arrival of unwanted offspring, spaying and neutering can improve your pet’s health and life expectancy. Spaying a female pet eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer, and greatly reduces the risk of mammary cancer. Neutering a male reduces the risk of prostate disease and certain cancers. Many pet owners report positive changes in their pet’s behavior once they have been spayed or neutered.
Orthopedic Surgery includes but not limited to:
Ultrasounds are invaluable to the examination of your pet’s internal organs. They are useful in evaluating heart conditions, identifying changes in organs and diagnosing cysts and tumors. We work with a specialist that will come directly to the hospital so no referrals.
Road Animal Hospital houses sophisticated digital dental and full body x-ray
equipment. Digital x-rays are extremely
helpful for immediate diagnosing and monitoring of any medical and surgical
condition. They also allow a low-dose of
radiation along with clear, high quality images.
Diagnostics and laboratory
You don't need to wait for the blood work results anymore. At Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital we have the most advanced blood work machines that provides immediate blood work results to ensure immediate diagnosis and proper treatment for any sick pet.
Microchipping is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that implants a very small chip into your pet. It can be read by animal shelters and veterinarian hospitals by using a hand-held scanning device which provides the name and contact details of the owner. It is a permanent identification method that can give you peace of mind knowing that you have taken every precaution to have your pet returned to you.
A proper diet is essential to your pet’s health and well-being. Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital carries a variety of quality pet foods, prescription diet food and treats and can make a recommendation that is specific to your pet’s breed, age, and health. With the range of foods available and access to the latest scientific nutritional information, we can help provide just the right plan for your pet. If your pet has a specific nutritional requirement, our doctors can recommend an appropriate diet to support the therapy of various illnesses, such as kidney disease, gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, oral health, urinary tract disease and others. We believe that good physical fitness, including nutrition, leads to the best overall health.
wellness profiles are important for maintaining your pet’s best health in their
senior years. A geriatric profile includes an exam, complete comprehensive
blood work and urinalysis. This
is particularly important in senior pets as internal systems can be first to
show signs of aging. Early identification is important for treating or managing
some of these diseases.
