What Sets Us Apart
Lakeside Veterinary Center is one of the few animal hospitals in the area that offers veterinary care for avian and exotic pets. We’re pleased to also have the only board-certified small mammal veterinarian in the state, Dr. Rhody, on our team. Dr. Rhody’s board certification demonstrates his advanced training and experience as well as his desire to provide pets with the best possible care. He and the rest of our staff all share the same passion for animals and dedication to exceptional customer service. That’s why we take time with each appointment and ensure that every patient and client is treated with respect and professionalism. We also make your pet’s comfort a priority and will even join him on the floor to make him more relaxed.
We regret to tell you that Dr. Katherine Halapy will be leaving our practice for a practice much closer to home. We hope you join us in wishing her the best things in life! She has been told there will always be a place for her at the Lakeside Veterinary Center. We hope our paths merge together again in the future.
