Well, Well, Wellness!
An annual check-up is the most cost-efficient way to keep your pet healthy. Protect your fuzzy friend with vaccines and parasite preventatives, and let us do a look-over from tooth to tail. We vaccinate only as necessary and exclusively use “PureVax” for cats—the safest, longest-lasting feline vaccines available.
So Fresh, So Clean
“Dog breath” is nothing to sniff at. Tooth and gum problems can be so painful that our furry friends quit eating, and tooth decay may lead to systemic issues, such as diabetes, kidney, heart and liver disease.
We consider dental health—and community service—so critical that every year we offer a terrific deal! Schedule a cleaning for your cat or dog in February, and bring a new toothbrush and toothpaste. We’ll knock $60 off your bill and donate the dental supplies to Caring for Cambodia , an Austin-based non-profit that gives 25,000 toothbrushes to Cambodian children and their families each year.
Don’t you want to give your bestie their best shot at being found? A microchip, no bigger than a grain of rice, can be inserted under your pet’s skin in the time it takes to administer a vaccination. (Also like a vaccination, the pain is quick and minimal!) When a lost pet lands at a shelter or vet’s office, a scanner checks for the microchip and retrieves your contact info. Now your friend is homeward bound!
With healthcare, there’s no “one size fits all.” We take an integrative approach to internal medicine. When formulating a treatment plan, we consider not just symptoms and the latest diagnostics, but your friend’s age, genes, and personal history. And we schedule surgeries daily, so if your pet needs a procedure fast, we’re on it. We can usually honor same-day spay/neuter and dental cleaning requests.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses light to stimulate circulation and cell activity, which increases the speed of healing. The treatment is pain-free and, even better, it lessens nerve sensitivity and releases endorphins—natural pain-banishers made by your pet’s own furry body.
Laser therapy may be used to effectively treat arthritis, muscle and ligament injuries, soft tissue damage following surgery, hot-spots, open wounds, ear infections, anal gland infections, and gingivitis. It has no known side effectives, and a session generally lasts between 10-30 minutes.
We have an extensive on-site lab and process nearly all of our diagnostics in-house. This means you generally have results in 20 minutes. We like to keep the process flowing, so we can discover what’s up with your friend and begin treatment, pronto.
We also stock the latest in digital x-ray and ultrasound equipment, to get quick, accurate results and preventively screen senior pets for tumors. For complicated radiology cases, we partner with board-certified radiologist and imaging specialist Dr. Matthew Cannon.
Dr. Heidi Moore grew up around livestock, treated large animals during her veterinary training in the West Indies, and now provides preventative and general care for horses, cows, sheep, goats, and pigs in our community. (She also keeps the birds healthy at Horseshoe Bay Resort!) Services include vaccinations, hoof, beak, and tusk maintenance, lab work, and health certificates.
If you have a tough time with travel, we’ll come to you! Our home/ranch services include vaccinations, exams, laser therapy, labor and delivery, and certain labs and surgeries. We can also help you say goodbye to your beloved family member in comfort and privacy.
Boarding can be traumatic for pets and their people—particularly if your pal came from a shelter. That’s why when you board with us, there’s always a Lakeway staffer around to ensure your bestie feels cozy and adored.
You Make Me Feel Like a Natural K-9
Our boarding facility has personal runs with transparent doors, so that our friends know they’re part of the action but can relax in safety. We schedule supervised outdoor play and group play for well-socialized dogs. And, because we know pups are people-persons, we keep a team member around, even overnight, so no one’s tempted to join the Lonely Hearts Club Band.
Welcome To The (Kat) Kingdom
Meet King, the Bengal who permanently reigns over the Kingdom. Like our temporary guests, King unwinds in his individual condo, where he keeps an eye on the pedestrian happenings of the lesser lobby creatures (any of us who weren’t lucky enough to be born feline).
When he isn’t prowling the ramps and climbing the tree (taunting mere mortals with his extraordinary athleticism), King graciously allows his feline visitors access to the Kingdom. He oversees all cat toy purchases and wants to assure those owned by felines that, with a team member around 24/7, your kitty will never feel abandoned or bored.
“Groove is in the heart…also in the cut”
Terri White has been helping animals find their groove for 37 years. She started as a high school student, borrowing a German Wirehaired Pointer to enter her first dog show. Later she groomed 4H chickens, rabbits, llamas, pigs, lambs, and goats. Now she works exclusively with pets, but she and her Rottweiler, Sheldon, can still be found strutting their stuff on the show circuit.
