Serving cats, dogs, and small companion animals/mammals

At Carver Lake Veterinary Center, we strive to be "your other family doctors" because we know that your pets are part of your family.  We provide top notch medical care for pets and exceptional customer care & education for owners.  We believe that when there is a partnership between a veterinary clinic and a pet owner, then our pets are able to receive the best care possible.

All of our doctors are here to serve your companion animals needs. In addition, we are proud that we service special interests in the following areas:

  • The Special Needs of Our Feline Friends - We know that bringing cats tot he vet isn't the most convenient or fun things, which is why we strive to make feline visits as low-stress as possible.
  • The Canine Athlete - Canine Athletes have special needs and Dr. Kate An Hunter is available to help.
  • Exotic Companion Mammals - Carver Lake knows that all pets, regardless of their size, are important members of your family. 
  • Animal Behavior - Many of our doctors have a special interest and additional training in dealing with behavior issues in dogs, cats, and small companion mammals.

Employee of the Month

Meet Derek, August's Employee of the Month!

Derek joined our team in 2014 as our first “seasonal” Certified Veterinary Technician. Which meant that after 6 months with us he went back to Florida to avoid our harsh winter (lucky!!). He returned this spring and jumped back in so easily it was like he never left....well except for the “Florida tan” he had!

We feel so fortunate to have such an awesome CVT on our team. Derek is hard working, patient, kind, and such a team player...we're trying to convince him to put up with the Minnesota winter this year and stay with us! ;) 


Happy August - The Dog Days of Summer!

Meet Leon, August's Pet of the Month!

Napoleon (aka Leon) is a sweet, 7 year old, dwarf hotot rabbit who belongs to Emma and her family.  And he is tiny - weighing just over 2 pounds!

But, what Leon lacks in size, he more than makes up for in personality!  This little guy loves to go outside and sniff in the garden, redecorate his home, and enjoys gourmet meals of Kale and other fresh delicacies!  

His family loves him dearly and say that rabbits make fantastic pets!  We happen to agree!
