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.

Meet Colton, October's Pet of the Month

Colton is an awesome 3 year old Great Dane who belongs to Lisa and her family.  Colton is one of the biggest dogs we see here, weighing in at 123 pounds!  But, don't let his size fool you - he's a sweetie who loves to snuggle with his family!

Employee of the Month

Meet Dr. Griffin

Dr. Griffin was nominated for employee of the month for her incredible connection with clients and their pets.  She takes the time to get to know her clients personally, and strives to be a partner in their pets' health.  

This picture is a perfect example, as Dr. Griffin knew that Gizmo, one of her special patients, always stops in around Halloween to show off his unique costume.  She reached out to them and found out what his costume was going to be, then surprised them by coordinating her costume of a "farmer" to match Gizmo's "corn" costume!

Thanks for all you do Dr. Griffin!  We're sure lucky to have you on our team!
