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 to the 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 Tasha, December's Pet of the Month!

Tasha is a sweet 12 year old German Shepherd loved by her parents Tony and Lisa.

Tasha enjoys hiding in leaf piles, playing with toys, playing boot hockey on ice, sticks, chasing squirrels, long walks in the woods (sometimes accompanied), snow, sledding, boating, fishing, a good nap, and playing fetch. But her favorite activity is riding on a jet ski!

Her life ambition is to become Pet Of The Month at Carver Lake Vet!

Happy Holidays

 In honor of Christmas, we will be closed on Chrismas Eve and Christmas Day.

We will be closed New Year's Eve and New Year's Day as well.

Holiday Safety for Pets

As the holidays approach and our spirits rise, our pets sense the excitement too. This time of year can be filled with fun, family, friends...and also many tempting, but dangerous, things for our four-legged friends. There are a number of things that concerned pet owners should know to keep their pets safe during the holiday season, and all winter long.

Home for the Holidays

It was the day before Christmas Eve when one of our clients brought in an Irish Setter that they had found wondering in traffic.  The winter storm was just setting in and none of us could imagine Christmas without our furry friends.
