  • Compassionate care

    -Amy Tischler from La Crosse, WI
    Pet Name: Cassie

    Pet Image I recently moved from Michigan to Wisconsin. My 15-year old lab/spaniel made the trip at a not-so-great time in her life. She had been recently experiencing poor health and I was concerned about finding a good new vet in my new town. On the recommendation of a friend of a friend, I made an appointment before i actually left Michigan as my dog would need bloodwork checked soon after our arrival in WI. Her appointment was with Dr. Young and based on the care, compassion and knowledge she demonstrated, I will definitely bring my other two pets to future vet visits with her. As it turns out, my sweet 15-year old was put to sleep. However, because of the care and compassion Dr. Young showed us, this process was easier to endure.

  • Great Doctors at VCA Sandlake Animal Hospital

    -Esther Frost from Onalaska, WI

    I am very impressed with the dedication of the two veterinarians who have my three cats (Murphy, Madison, and Bean) as "clients". They go above and beyond in their roles as experienced, caring, knowledgeable, and talented doctors. I recommend Dr. Elizabeth Havlik and Dr. Cheryl Matuszewski to anyone looking for a veterinarian for their pet's medical care.

  • Thank You

    -Shelli from Onalaska, WI
    Pet Name: Dash and Ruby

    Pet Image The first time we came to the clinic was because of the proximity; we live very near VCA Sand Lake Animal Hospital. After our first visit we were convinced it was the right place for our dogs! We always received kind and thorough care for our pets, up until we needed help with end-of-life decisions. Dr. Havlik, Jane and Barb have been a favorites of our dogs for a long time.

    After 6 months without a pet we adopted 2 dogs; the first call we made was to the clinic to set up initial checkups. We look forward to another long relationship with you!

  • Twenty Three Years of Pet Care

    -Judy and Jack Rusch from Onalaska, WI

    VCA Sand Lake Animal Hospital has cared for our pets for 23 years. Throughout those 23 years, the hospital has grown, many of the faces have changed, but it has continued to be the same caring and compassionate facility. All of the doctors are dedicated to providing quality care to your pets.

    Our animals always enjoy their hospital visits. It feels to us as though the entire staff truly cares about their health and well being from check in to check out. We never hesitate to recommend VCA Sand Lake to anyone whose pets might be in need of veterinary care.

    As clients, we also appreciate the donation of their time and talents to our local Coulee Region Humane Society offering their professional services to help care for many of those pets in need. We feel their helping the local Humane Society simply shows their love and commitment to animals well beyond their immediate veterinary practice.

    Thank you,
    Judy and Jack Rusch
