They have been through the ups and downs of our pets allergies, illnesses and whatever else they have had over the years. Their communication alone is the best. They will call you back with any questions you have and really take the time to explain things to you. They stick to your appointment times and get you in and out. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for our pet care.

Absolutely the best. Dr. Paula has seen us through 4 dogs since 1985. Always compassionate, always communitive, always wonderful staff even with our current “quirky” dog, Annie.

I’m so happy that Southfork has taken a stand against declawing cats and that they’re focusing on a fear-free approach to veterinary care. Lakeville is lucky to have them.

We love Southfork Animal Hospital. My pups love Dr.Lentz!!! The staff is always willing to answer questions and help me out. I feel my canines are in the best care!

I have had great visits every time I’ve been at Southfork! All of the staff and doctors are very friendly and knowledgeable. I’m so happy all of my pets are in great hands!!

Here is a sneak peek into a day at Southfork Animal Hospital!

Southfork Animal Hospital provides dental, surgical, wellness, medical and behavioral care. We operate by appointments only, which allows us to minimize wait times in the hospital and devote proper time to client communication and a thorough pet exam. We understand emergencies happen and do our best to accommodate them but also sometimes need to refer you to South Metro Animal Emergency Care or Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners for additional care. At Southfork Animal Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
