Welcome to Caring Hands Animal Hospital, your local veterinarians.

We’re proud to provide a wide variety of veterinary medical services for Dogs, Cats, Birds, and small animals in Lake City & surrounding areas!

Our team is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pets, and in 2008 we were proudly certified by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) – only 15% of small animal hospitals achieve this accreditation. You can learn more about AAHA’s standards for their members by clicking here.

Our facility is equipped with an in house laboratory, digital x-ray, ultrasound, dental x-ray, allergy testing and immunotherapy, and multi-perimeter patient monitoring systems. This helps our doctors diagnose and treat most problems as quickly as possible. We also maintain excellent relationships with nearby specialists should your pet need referral for specialized care.

More than just a bandaid

We look at and evaluate the WHOLE pet. Because your pet is more than a limp or an itchy ear- they’re a member of the family.

  • We look at your pet inside and out.

  • We promote early detection diagnostics and disease screening.

  • We promote dentistry for the health of your entire pet.

  • We know that excellent nutrition is a fundamental component of whole health care.

  • We view parasite control as necessary for the continued health and well-being of the entire family.

  • We promote sensible vaccination as a cornerstone of contagious disease prevention.

  • We see ourselves as advocates for environmental enrichment for pets., with the understanding that their needs are different from those of humans.

  • We promote a pain -free life for pets knowing that there are “silent sufferers” all around us.
