DO NOT VISIT LAKESIDE ANIMAL HOSPITAL…..I’ll preface this by saying I think this may be only 1 of 2 negative reviews I’ve ever post on any company,

I’ve been long time customer at this vet & was always satisfied with their service. I recently got a new puppy so of course my first thought was to take him to Lakeside…a facility that was always great!

Unfortunately, they are now under different ownership & the tables have turned. I used to feel like they truly cared about the pets coming into the facility but now all they want is your money.

Upon first visit, I was told I could get a “package” that includes vaccines, pre & post neutering care, & the actual neutering itself for $639…seemed like a great deal!

Come to find out, this was a “puppy plan” for their facility that lasts a full year & you cannot get out of (this was not disclosed to me)

Even worse, when I took my puppy to get his pre-neutering tests, they demanded something was wrong with him from the in house bloodwork they completed.

I spent $300+ on testing, visits, & unnecessary antibiotics on top of the “puppy plan”. After all that, they still claimed something was wrong & were pushing another $300 for testing. When I tried to ask the vet what could’ve caused the issue & that he seemed fine, she would only reply saying “I needed to purchase the test to find out”.

Finally, I was fed up so I did my own research & found the symptoms of the “issue” they claimed my puppy had were not eating, lethargy, etc….quite the opposite from how he behaves day to day!

I went to another reputable vet for a second opinion. Turns out…my puppy is PERFECTLY FINE!!

They sucked money out of me and not only that, REFUSE to refund the remaining money for the “Puppy Plan”, which was sold to me as just vaccines & neutering.

Offering advice to any new puppy parents…DO NOT go to Lakeside Animal Hospital. There are so many vets in the area that will truly care about your pet & not just try to take more & more money from you!

The Staff is the BEST! Gracie is a Rottweiler and other places denied her service unless she was muzzled due to her breed. This Vet/Staff treated ALL animals like they were Royalties. Not only were they great with Gracie but also with me.

I have to let Dr. Bahr and the staff know how much we appreciated the guidance and the emotional support Saturday when we made the very difficult decision on our 15 year old Scottish Terrier Lady. They gave us as much time as we needed for each step and kept the emotional support surrounding us. Thank you all for the compassion you gave my husband and me and the reverence you showed for Lady.

This just popped up on my fb page, i don't even live in this city anymore, but have such high regard for this practice. Approximately 5 years ago our dachshund had been run over and needed an xray and determine what to do. We had no money for a few days until payday, i was so distraught, my husband out of town and my kids crying. I called our regular family vet in Wellborn and explained our desperate situation. I sat on the phone for the wife of the Dr to remind me they needed pymt upfront and why, she told me all about the bills of the practice and just sunk me further into my horrible situation. We called Lakeside, they had never heard of us and told us to bring him in right away, they took a check that i asked them to please deposit on Thursday and they graciously did. I will never forget there calm gracious offer, our dog Rufus is on my lap right now. That is a real testament to this office.

Customer Testimonials

Dr. Saporito and all the staff at Lakeside Animal Hospital, my little min pin "Roo" needed surgery on her rear legs. I know it was traumatic for her, but it was also very upsetting for me. As usual, we were treated with kindness and respect. After the surgery, I received follow-up calls every day for about 10 days. my own doctor wouldn't have done this. I knew that I could call if there were any problems and would be able to come into the office right away. This was not necessary. Everything went very smoothly. The most amazing part was the follow-up, I thought that "Roo" would be reluctant to go back into the office again. Not so. When we get out of the car, she can't wait to get inside. This is because of the kind and gentle care she received. So I want to thank you all and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving & Holiday Season.
Love,


Yesterday we had the had the scare of our life,Iceberg had major complications do to a heat stroke. He’s not just a pet but a beloved family member,he was damn near lifeless. From the time we got there with him until the time we got the great news that he was gonna be ok...thanks for all you guys extraordinary care and support!


I want to thank Dr. Bar and the entire staff at Lakeside. We had to make a difficult decision with our 18 year old chi today. Over the past weeks they have been extremely open and supportive. I would recommend Lakeside to anyone. Again, thank you.


Thank you guys so much for today! Excited that I have found such a caring professional place for my pup ! Great experience throughout from first initial contact to actually meeting the staff and my new favorite Texas Doc!


Lakeside Animal hospital is the best animal hospital i ever been too. They have a amazing staff working there and they do an excellent job treating my sick dogs.


There have been times when I've been frustrated by Lakeside. They have a process and it can creep along if a client is there, for example, to buy a specialty pet food and there is not a staffer free to receive animals for vet services or boarding. That said, our experience with Lakeside with the hard choice of putting a pet down because of illness was incredibly sensitive and supportive. All the staff knew that is what we were there for and they knew Spot from repeated boardings over the years. The doctor made all of us comfortable and allowed this to be as personal an experience as one wanted it to be. Later, we received a sympathy card from all the staff. I recommend Lakeside.

We are sad to report yet another heartworm positive patient. 💔😟 We have never seen so many patients test positive for this potentially fatal disease! Did you know that you can protect your pet from contracting heartworm by giving a monthly preventative?
