What to Expect

puppy1.png When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service.  We at Lake View Veterinary Service in Iowa have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet.  We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.  Call 712-665-8553 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

In addition to providing routine Veterinary care for our local community, our team's focus and expertise is in surgery. We have the equipment and expertise to provide surgical services for all aspects of Veterinary medicine. We have become a local surgical referral center for orthopedic and trauma surgery. We routinely perform many orthopedic procedures ranging from cranial cruciate ligament repair to spinal surgery. We also perform a host of soft tissue surgeries such as intestinal foregin body removal and cancer surgery. Recently we have installed the equipment necessary to provide Stem Cell therapy to our patients. We are finding this to be an extremely useful tool in many cases, especially in chronic arthritis cases. 

The following is a partial list of the equipment at our disposal to assist in our care for your animals.

-Digital Radiography



-Gas anethesia with positive pressure ventilation capabilities

-Blood pressure and EKG monitoring

-Full in-house blood chemistry capabilites

-Stem Cell harvest and preparation equipment by InGeneron

Because we are a small practice in rural Iowa, we have lower overhead costs then many larger, "big city" practices. This allows us to charge lower prices for many of our services compared to the University or large referral practices in the urban areas of Iowa, while maintaining the same high standard of care.
