Caring for pets... and their people, too.

At VCA Lake Shore Animal Hospital, we look forward to welcoming you, your dog, cat and other pets. Everyone on our staff believes that the better we get to know your pets, the better we can provide the best possible health care for them. In fact, when you come in, you'll see exactly why our veterinarians are praised for their kind and thorough care. We'll give you and your pet all the time you need, and never rush through an exam. We'll also carefully track the course of your pet's care, which is so important to your pet's long-term health.

In every case, you'll be served by experienced, knowledgeable members of our staff. Our veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other pet-friendly personnel are trained to the highest standards. Their knowledge of the latest veterinary medicines and procedures ensures that all our pet patients get the best in prevention and healing methods.

Thank you
Alyssa Horwitz from Chicago

VCA Lake Shore was a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for your wonderful attention and care for my dog Ollie. All of the vets, nurses, and front desk staff were amazing. Thank you very much for helping to make a frightened, over protective, and crazy doggy mom feel better about her puppy! I was very nervous about switching vets and I am definitely here to stay! Ollie says hi and thank you too!!!
