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.

Employee of the Month

Meet Stefanie, March's Employee of the Month!

Stefanie is our Lead Client Care Coordinator, and to many of our clients, she is the "face and voice" of Carver Lake.  Stefanie is one of the most well known faces of our team because her smile is the first thing that greets visitors, and her cheerful voice the first thing they hear when they call.  

Lately, Stefanie has also been doing lots of training and coaching of our new team members, which helps them become amazing additions to our clinic.  This process can be time consuming and exhausting, but Stefanie does it all with a smile and positive attitude.

In addition to her duties as our Lead CCC, Stefanie is also our PlayCare Coordinator.  Thanks to Stefanie's attention, the program continues to grow as a safe environment for our puppies to socialize, learn, and most importantly, burn off some energy!

We'd be lost without you Stef - thank you for everything you do!!!


Happy St. Patrick's Day!
