What Clients Are Saying

I always have had the best service. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and answer my questions. The staff was there for me when my previous dog was sick and dying. And now they are there for my new puppy.


The staff treat you and your pet like family. Staff really friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Long Lake Animal Hospital to anybody that has a pet.


I visited during lunch hour and the office was quite busy. Erin was very professional on how she accommodated everybody’s needs and kept the office running smoothly at the same time.


We were in and out before the schedule appointment time. The staff had my dog’s medications all ready to go before we got there. Everyone was very friendly.


Being a pet owner can be hard, your pet can’t tell you if something is wrong and you want to be sure you are doing the best to take care of them. The veterinarian at Long Lake Animal Hospital was patient and listened to all my concerns!


We have been with you for many years. You have taken care of three of our dogs: Coors, BBking and Bailey. Cleatis since he was a puppy. Cleatis is 11 years old with a lot of health problems. You are always there whenever a problem a raises. Thank you.
