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 Alfalfa, October's Pet of the Month!

Alfalfa is super cute, four year old Boston Terrier that belongs to the Felicida family.  

Alfalfa (or Al for short) loves playing with toys, lounging by the fireplace, and playing with sticks in the back yard.  He's also a bit of a celebrity, having placed first and third in the Woodbury Magazine's Pet Category over the years!

Al's family loves him very much and are so glad he's in their lives.

Costume Crisis

Dear Curry,

I am a human and going to a costume party this Halloween, but I am not very creative.  Any suggestions on a costume that will "wow" my friends?
