In an over abundance of caution we are now doing “curbside service” only to protect the health of our wonderful employees and clients until this public health crisis resolves.

We ask that clients call when they arrive and an employee will bring your animal into the hospital and you will receive a call from one of our doctors regarding your pets visit.

Exceptions can be made on more critical cases or euthanasia appointments. We also wanted to reiterate that if you have been experiencing cold like symptoms please reschedule non emergency visits for a later time and if your pet has an emergency please explain to the staff that you are experiencing illness so we can make the appropriate accommodations.

Thank you to all of our amazing clients who continue to trust us with their pets care during these trying and difficult times.

Your Pet is Family. We Treat Them as Such.

The staff here is amazing.
They truly care about your pets. The front desk is always fast and super friendly and the vets and vet techs are amazing as well. What really touched me was that we recently lost our dog and today I received a card personally signed by Dr. Pratt and the staff on the loss of our dog Riley. It was completely unexpected and extremely thoughtful. Thank you Lake City Animal Hospital for every thing you do!

Dr. Pratt and Staff are the amazing.
He has taken great care of our fur baby daisy. She has had 2 FHO, 2 Knee Surgeries and a tumor removal and Dr. Pratt's skills and compassion are like no other. I live 2 hours away and if my baby needs anything done surgically Lake City Animal Hospital is the ONLY place I trust for our babies.

-April K.

Great staff!
I have used this facility for over 30 yrs and even though it changed hands of owners and doctors I am still happy to say this is where my family of pets go too. Caring is worth Sharing so this is how I feel.

We're AAHA-Accredited

We’ve always been committed to a higher level of care for your furry family, and our accreditation with the American Animal Hospital Association shows just how deep that commitment is. Accreditation is done on a volunteer basis — animal hospitals are not required to be accredited. Yet, we couldn’t imagine doing anything less than the best, so we became accredited in 2010 and have maintained our high level of care since.
