Our philosophy is simple, we love pets. To ensure that your pets receive the quality care and attention they deserve, we have created the kind of facility that pet lovers dream about. East Lake offers state-of-the-art treatment and surgical facilities, a full-service grooming area and luxurious lodging accommodations, all managed by a compassionate and caring team of doctors and team who truly love animals. We are proud to be among only 14% of veterinary facilities in the country accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This means that we voluntarily chose to be evaluated (and are continually evaluated) on over 900 stringent criteria of quality care that are continually updated to reflect the best standards in patient care. East Lake has received multiple awards including “Practice of Excellence” by the Veterinary Medical Publishing Group, “Best In Dallas” by the Dallas Observer, and received the “Best Vets” award from D Magazine. We care for dogs, cats, and even potbellied pigs and birds. For your convenience, you can make an appointment or leave your pet with us for the day. Either way, we make every effort to accommodate your special needs. We care about the details, because our clients know that little things can make a big difference.
In addition to medical care, we are proud to offer lodging, bathing, grooming, daycamp, and massage. When pets arrive at East Lake for lodging they are evaluated by a veterinary nurse who provides a health screening and makes sure pets are parasite-free. Our pet guests stay in our specially designed noise-controlled suites and cabins and we even have TV sets and toddler beds, so pets feel right at home. Cybersuites are available too, so pets can be seen anytime, from anywhere computer access is available and veterinarians are on site 7 days a week. Pets also enjoy outside walks and playtime. We routinely feed the highest quality prescription and Hill’s foods or if you have special feeding requirements, we’ll even cook for your pets!
We cater to cats too. Cats enjoy staying in a private quiet area with cat condos. Cats from the same family can even have adjoining condos. Our luxurious cat quarters have shelves to perch on and window views to the outside, where we have arranged bird feeders and bird houses for hours of visual stimulation. A television also and special programming designed specifically to entertain cats and powerful air purifiers provide a clean, fresh, dust free environment.
Whether you’re out of town or you just have a long day at the office, Day Camp is the answer. We offer the only fully enclosed outdoor activity yard for play and exercise in Dallas. It features multiple wading pools, sandy beaches for digging, decks, palm trees, and lots of shade. After digging, wading, a friendly game of Frisbee, and a healthy treat from our biscuit bar, your pet will be ready for a relaxing nap. With all of the activities and individual attention your pet will receive, there’s no boredom, only lots of fun. And our Day Camp is not just for dogs, your cats will love it too! Cats require a quieter more reflective environment where they can lounge and relax. We provide everything your cat craves, from toys and tummy rubs to healthy treats and lots of human companionship. Every pet that enters our Day Camp program is individually screened for temperament and special needs. Particular attention is given to your pet’s own unique personality so that their stay is just right for them.
At East Lake it is our goal to pamper your pet so that they will love bath time! Our Hydrosurge bathing system provides gentle pulsating water therapy that removes loose hair and dander from your pet, while massaging muscles and joints. Our experienced and compassionate team specialize in older pets and pets with special needs. We offer a wide variety of medicated shampoos, conditioners, and salon treatments. We follow baths with our unique drying system which is designed to provide gentle, stress-free, air fluff drying. Included with each bath is nail trimming, gland expression and health screening. After a nice warm bath, you may want to have your pet groomed by one of our gentle and compassionate professional stylists. Our stylists have years of experience and training to provide a spa-like experience for your pet. From the newest puppy to the most senior citizen, we will cater to your pet. No matte or tangle is too big to be tamed. And to top it all off we can do a pedicure and polish. We offer show quality trims and practical, cool and comfortable styles. A clean, well groomed coat is very important to the overall well being of your pet, and at East Lake nothing is more important to us than healthy and happy pets.
We now offer pet massage as part of our whole animal services. Massages are done by a licensed massage therapist who also happens to be an animal lover. Our pet massages take place in a calm, quiet, private room for the ultimate in pet pampering. Massage therapy has been found to be beneficial for arthritic pets, the athletic dog, and post surgical patients. It is great for muscle tone and improved mobility and circulation. Pets love massages as much as people do!
Everything we do is designed to keep your pet healthy and happy. If your pet needs anything from major surgery to something minor, like a bath, we can provide it. You're always welcome to visit us and experience our love of pets for yourself.
