Lakeside Animal Clinic is a full-service small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care since 1977. Dr. Michael McCann built the clinic and started practicing at the current location in June of 1977. In those days, there were very few buildings in the area, and Westheimer was nothing but a small, two-lane Farm-To-Market Road. Over the years, he built up a large and loyal clientele of west Houston pet owners. As the area became more populated, the practice began growing as well, eventually reaching the point it is today, with over 3,700 active clients and over 40 new clients per month.
In September 2007, Dr. McCann retired, and the clinic was purchased by Dr. Randy Wiltshire. Dr. Wiltshire is a 2002 graduate of Texas A&M University, and he worked for five years on the north side of Houston after graduation. Dr. Wiltshire is excited about the opportunity to take over such a vibrant and growing practice with such loyal clients.
We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. We also work closely with local practices when special diagnostic procedures are required. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, a closely supervised hospitalization area, and indoor boarding kennels with outdoor walking areas.
Dr. Wiltshire believes that client education, preventive care, and early detection of disease are the cornerstones to successful animal health care. He also believes that veterinary services can be state-of-the-art without being overly expensive. At Lakeside Animal Clinic we strive to offer not only top of the line veterinary care, but also sound preventive medicine advice, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn't feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy for years to come.
