Serving cats, dogs, and small companion animals/mammals

At Carver Lake Veterinary Center, we strive to be "your other family doctors" because we know that your pets are part of your family.  We provide top notch medical care for pets and exceptional customer care & education for owners.  We believe that when there is a partnership between a veterinary clinic and a pet owner, then our pets are able to receive the best care possible.

All of our doctors are here to serve your companion animals needs. In addition, we are proud that we service special interests in the following areas:

  • The Special Needs of Our Feline Friends - We know that bringing cats tot he vet isn't the most convenient or fun things, which is why we strive to make feline visits as low-stress as possible.
  • The Canine Athlete - Canine Athletes have special needs and Dr. Kate An Hunter is available to help.
  • Exotic Companion Mammals - Carver Lake knows that all pets, regardless of their size, are important members of your family. 
  • Animal Behavior - Many of our doctors have a special interest and additional training in dealing with behavior issues in dogs, cats, and small companion mammals.

Meet Charlie, December's Pet of the Month!

Charlie is a sweet little tuxedo kitten, who isn't even a year old yet!  He belongs to Ella and her family and they just love him to pieces!

Charlie's favorite activities include running, playing with stuffed animals, and chasing puff ball toys.  His family says he is a very happy cat, and his happiness is contagious which makes the whole family happy!  ;)

Meet Charlie, January's Pet of the Month!

Charlie is a super sweet 4 year old Golden Retriever who belongs to the Case Family.  She loves playing with her tennis ball and rope tug toys, and also enjoys walks and running at dog parks.  

Charlie also has a silly sense of humor (you can see it in her grin!)  She loves to wake her owner up every morning with a paw to the head, and always spins three times before every meal.  She's quite the lovable goofball.

Employee of the Month

Meet Dr. Hunter, January's Employee of the Month!

Dr. Kate An Hunter has been the owner of Carver Lake Veterinary Center since it opened in 1996.  She was voted "employee" of the month by her team because of how hard she works to make this a place we are all proud to work for.

It was Dr. Hunter's vision to create a clinic where patients receive the best possible care, where owners are treated as friends, and where employees are happy and good at their job.  Looking around at our clinic, it's obvious that her dream has become a reality.  

Her team would like to thank her for being such an awesome boss, veterinarian, and friend all these years.  She deserves to be "employee" of the year!  Thanks for everything Dr. Hunter!!!

Fleas & Ticks for Winter

Many people stop using flea and tick preventatives on their pets because they think, “it is too cold for the bugs” but this incorrect belief puts pets at risk for fleas and ticks all winter long!

Keeping Pets Safe in the Cold

Winter in the Midwest means quickly falling temperatures. There are a number of things you can do to keep your pets safe and warm during this year's cold season.

My New Year's Weight Loss Resolution

Dear Curry, 

My New Year's Resolution this year is to lose some weight.  I've always been a bit of a "fat cat" and I know that isn't healthy.  What tips do you have for a pet trying to lose weight?
