At Lake Chatuge Animal Hospital, we aim to create an environment that is warm and inviting to both you and your pets. Hospital visits can be stressful for animals, and we do our best to keep this stress to a minimum. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean and comfortable, and we pride ourselves on our efficiency. From the receptionists to our doctors, we aim to keep our clients and patients happy and stress free.
When you arrive, you will be greeted by our friendly team of receptionists for check in. If you are a new client, please arrive 15 minutes early so we can obtain information about you and your pet. You will then be brought into the room by one of our veterinary assistants who will get a weight and temperature on your pet and discuss the reason for today's visit. The veterinarian will then join you and perform a nose to tail exam and go over any diagnostics, procedures and/or treatments that may need to be performed. From there, it's back to the reception team. Within a visit or two, you'll get to know us all very well.
Being a vacation town, we are used to having out of town or part-time patients. We will work with your other veterinarian to transfer records and make sure everyone is on the same page regarding your pet's care. If you have records from your other veterinarian, it will be helpful if you can bring them with you. If you do not have them, it's not a problem; We will contact your other veterinarian to have your pet's medical history faxed.
Please see the “Virtual Office Tour”, “Meet Our Veterinarians” and "Meet the Staff” page for more information about us. When you call to schedule, you may request an appointment with a specific doctor, or if you do not have a preference, you will be put on the schedule with the first available appointment.
