Compassionate Staff

Written by: Ben
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Port Washington

I had to take my kitty here because he was having trouble going to the bathroom. When I arrived I was promptly greeted by a technician who took my cat immediately, before making me fill out paperwork, which was very reassuring. Luckily the problem wasn't as severe as I thought but the Techs and Doctor I spoke with here very kind, understanding, and knowledgeable. They answered all my questions with patience. We were able to leave with some medicine and peace of mind. 

The next time I need an emergency vet I plan on returning here. I also plan on recommending Lakeshore to all my friends with animals of their own. 

To the staff: I am happy that my kitty's problem was not as bad as it could have been. The last time I was in a vet ER it was not nearly as pleasant. With that said though, words can not express how grateful I am to see a place with such compassionate and intelligent staff. Thank you all so much :)

Best Care Imaginable

Lola is doing GREAT!! She's about a month post-op and is back to her old tricks, as you can see from the picture of her with cardboard around her body. I loved bringing her to Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists in Glendale! Dr. Rushing and his techs took their time and answered all of our questions, and helped ease the minds of Lola's very anxious family from the initial evaluation all the way through her recovery to her happy release. We would highly recommend the knowledgeable and courteous staff at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists, and while I truly hope she never needs such a specialized surgery in the future, I know that my fur baby is in amazing hands and under the best care imaginable. Thank you Dr. Rushing for giving back to us our lovable, playful, energetic Lola.

Thanks again for your caring support. Never thought I'd see Zoomer compete again, but he's feeling great. Big thanks to Shannon and Drew in rehab also.

Precious Is Doing Amazing

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

Lakeshore Veterinary Clinic in Oak Creek is incredible. The staff there is absolutely amazing. Precious had back surgery 2 years ago and she is doing amazing! When we took her in she couldn't use her back legs at all, it was the hardest time, she has so much energy now. I was blown away with the care they gave her and always answered our questions.

What a Difference!

Jac's Vet gave me names of Vets in this area that specialized in Allergies and I chose Lakeshore's Veterinary Specialists and found Dr. Casey Stepnik at the Oak Creek location.  Jac was skin tested one year ago and of course he was allergic to many pollens.  We went along with Dr. Stepnik's recommendation of Immunotherapy (SLIT) for Jac and he started June 11, 2014.  What a difference a year later!!!  Only one ear infection at the beginning of therapy, no more licking of paws, chewing on legs, constant rubbing of eyes etc.  His energy level has increased 100%!  He is like a new dog, running around the yard chasing his sister Luci Lu and engaging in game playing with her again. His quality of life is back and we  thank Dr. Stepnik and her wonderful and friendly staff for guiding us and giving us back our Jac!

Would Not Take Pet Family Anywhere Else

If there is better veterinary care or more care for the owner and pet, I have never found it.  These people really care about animals and it shows.  I would not take my pet family anywhere else.

Just wanted to update Dr. Lakia and everyone at Lakeshore who was involved in saving my little guy over the weekend. He's bounced back wonderfully, and I can't thank you enough.

Zeus Was Treated Like A King

Written by: Julie, Troy, and Zeus
Lakeshore Hospital Location: Oak Creek

Dr. Stepnik and Lakeshore Vet Staff,

When your pet is your child, nothing is worse than when they are hurt and can’t tell you what is wrong.  We’ve been very fond of Dr. Thomas and staff at Community, and when he couldn’t help Zeus this time, we felt a little helpless.  I’m very grateful of his recommendation to consult you.  Our first visit was amazing, all of you treated Zeus like a king and it was all about him, when he was needy, what made him comfortable.  That’s how he runs our house.  Although the surgery was a little nerve racking, we were more at ease with each phone call.  Sally was amazing at pick-up and helpful on my follow up questions.  At our 6 week check we received a little bad news but mostly good.  Zeus is rehabbing fabulously.  He’s loving the swimming pool at K9 Splash, has short walks and hanging in the rec room now that he can do some stairs.  My husband and I are over the moon with the service and care you provided us.  We hope that we’re not back for anything major, but would definitely recommend your services to anyone that has a similar situation.  Thank you again for all you do.
