Enjoying Life Again

Written by: Mike & Molly
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Port Washington

Dear Dr. Tate,

We both wanted to thank you profusely for taking care of and diagnosing Emma so well.  We have both read as much as we can about Addison's this last week and realize how often it is not caught.  For you to catch it before it turned into a life threatening crisis means the world to us and speaks volumes about how great you are at your profession.

Emma isn't back 100% yet but has been doing much better since starting her medication.  She's always been very tough and easy going, so it's been hard to see her sick.  We know she'll turn around and be able to enjoy life again, thanks to you.

I was able to finally get a photo of her smile (after trying for the last 10 years!) and thought you and the staff at the clinic would love to have it.

All the best,

Mike and Molly

Exceptional Care

Written by: Nick
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Glendale

I spent my last weekend in and out of this emergency hospital and the care that I received was exceptional. My dog was there for almost 40 hours and I was given updates each time a different doctor was rotating off his/her shift. They moved swiftly to eradicate what was a life-threatening infection. They also were incredible about monitoring him over the course of his stay for any symptoms, as he had had seizures previously. During my times of extreme stress and hysteria, they were empathetic, confident, cool, calm, and collected. I have never met or spoken to veterinarians (or technicians) who were this comprehensive/smart. They understood that in my time of need, they needed to tell me absolutely everything about how my dogs body was operating and what they were doing or had done to make him better. When exiting, the technician was so passionate about the take home instructions and my animal. I could feel the love my dog had for this man who had been taking such care of him. He was pretty much saying "I love your dog and have been taking good care of him, you better do the same" I knew that they had a genuine, vested emotional interest in my dog's well being. I spent a small fortune and felt like I got more than my money's worth. They have a beautiful facility and an amazing staff. Thanks Lakeshore! 

Blessing to Community

Written by: Laura
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Glendale

Good afternoon Dr Teunissen, your staff has been exceptional.  Haley is back to her happy Haley self today, eating and tearing up a baby care bear toy.  It took her 5 days before she tore it up and that is what gave me such joy because that is very normal behavior.   You are one of my favorite people because you saved Comet of course but also because you respect the owners of these animals and it is very obvious you love your work and the animals.  I really respect that.  Please don't misunderstand if I say I hope I don't want to go back to Glendale.  That just would mean Haley is doing well.   Your  clinics are such a blessing to the community and you have a great staff.  Just wanted you to know Haley is doing well and I really appreciate you.  Best for the new year, Laura.

Exactly What Boo Needed

Written by: Sheila
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Oak Creek

I had to bring my dog Boo to see a vet after he stopped eating and drinking. The staff was very down to earth, friendly and courteous. After he was examined I was given three possible courses of action, with the recommended being the most conservative and economical. That turned out to be exactly what he needed. They also followed through by notifying my regular vet. It was very much worth the longer drive to Oak Creek for my dog's emergency vet care.

Thank you very much,

Thank You Very Much!

Heroic Staff

Written by: Linda and Joker
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Oak Creek

My little Jack Russell Terrier and best friend, Joker, was viciously attacked by a large dog while we were out on our daily walk. I rushed him to his regular veterinarian, Dr. Jahn, at North Shore Animal Hospital in Racine. She evaluated his injuries,determined he would need surgery, 24 hour care after surgery, and, therefore, recommended Lakeshore Vet Specialists in Oak Creek. From the time we arrived in tears to the time we left with smiles, we were we were treated with compassion, emotional support, and felt confident Joker was being given the best care possible. Everyone from Dr. Lakia, Joker's primary doctor there; Dr. Odders, his surgeon; the many technicians, and the rest of the entire staff are, without a doubt, heroes. I was told I could call any time I wanted to check on Joker or to ask any questions I may have, and, believe me, I did! I will be eternally grateful to everyone who helped to save my "little munchkin´s" life.

Helped Our Little Guy!

Written by: Joe and Jagger
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Oak Creek

I want to thank the entire staff for their wonderful service and compassion. Our 7 month old miniature schnauzer "Jagger" ate some of his crate bedding and couldn't pass it. He was vomiting, lethargic, and obviously not eating. The staff took him in, took x-rays, and administered IV fluids for a day and a half. Jagger had 2 bowel movements immediately upon arriving home and is already back to his normal self. Thank you all so much for helping our little guy. It meant the world to us.

To the staff and doctors of LVS,

On behalf of our family, I would like to sincerely thank the team at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists for their excellent service and care of our beloved Daisy.  We were so fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and understanding team caring for Daisy over the past 10 months.  A special thank you to Dr. Reiman and her vet techs for guiding us and Daisy through her chemo treatments.  Dr. Reiman was very patient and understanding with us in sorting out the best treatment.  Also, many thanks to Dr. Mulvany and Dr. Schmidt for their care and thoughtfulness on Daisy's final day.  To all the staff, we appreciate your care and compassion during this difficult time.
