I've been doing business with Lakeline Animal Care for 14 years. I find pricing is competitive and doctors are very knowledgeable. Oliver Engel is my favorite. I realize that you have to make money to keep the lights on so I never bitch about the cost to keep my Blue Heelers happy.

Although Lakeline Animal Care is highly rated, and the staff friendly and professional, if you care about the health of your pet you will not go there.
On my third visit there with my puppy, they completely overvaccinated him and he suffered a reaction. Without even consulting me, they gave my 13 week and 5 day old puppy a combo vaccine of DHP-P, plus Leptospirosis, Bordatella and the Rabies vaccine.
Rabies is commonly not given until 20 weeks, and Bordatella is needed prior to boarding but was certainly not indicated or requested and the entire onslaught of vaccines was just too much for his little system. He is thankfully still alive, but I no longer trust them as they took it upon themselves to give him all these shots without discussing it with me first.
They are also amongst the most expensive vet clinic you could find, and in this case, you definitely don't get what you pay for. Stay away!

I have only been to this vet two times, but they act like we have been coming there forever. They listen to all my concerns and really take time to answer all my questions. As with some other veterinarians I didn't feel like they were just trying to sell me something and get me out. One doctor did not even charge me for a pain injection for my cat and the receptionist made sure I knew all the medication options and the lowest prices. One of the other nice things is the office always smells really good and not like a hospital. My cat get really stressed about the smell at the doctor and I think it really helps that it smells kind of like home. Anyway the entire staff is really nice and all of the doctors seem very knowlegeable.
