    I have had multiple vets over the years. Lake Forest is THE BEST. They love your baby and they take incredible care of the parents. From the front office staff (Abby & Stephanie) to Marlena (no words can express how fabulous she is). Drs. Sommermeyer, Sharma and Singh are the best veterinarians in Collin County. They have taken care of my epileptic baby (and mom) for 2 years. Buffy Currie endorses this review:)

    Alyssa Wilkinson

    So glad we found you! After moving to a whole new state the biggest fear was who would be there to take care of our pets after we leave our lifetime vet. Lake Forest Animal Hospital was the best thing we could wish for! Thank you for all y'all do and have done for us!

    Holly Rodriguez

    Love the extensive hours, minimal wait time, and reasonable prices. The staff has been wonderful and were amazing when we had to put our beloved dog down.

    Meaghan Estes

    I drive almost an hour to LFAH because they're so great - the staff is caring, attentive and knowledgeable and genuinely have your pets best interest in mind. Their hours are practical for people who work full time and even so, have highly competitive rates for the area. I refer to many people to check them out I almost feel like I should start carrying business cards on me. Cannot recommend them enough!

    Also, hospital cat Chadwick Mortimer Biscuitshire will out-greet any mascot in existence and make your lobby experience second to none. He himself gets 6 out of 5 stars and is worth the visit alone.

    Tony Auto Salon

    One day I was out of town and didn’t have all the required shots for Camp Bow Wow for my baby dog Panda Bear. Without hesitation, they went out on the field to help me in the time of need. I recommend these wonderful people to everybody!

    Brenda Hall

    I can’t thank y’all enough for the wonderful care my rescue dogs and personal dogs receive at your clinic. I’ve had several critical situations with these babies and I know they’ll get the very best possible care with you.  I highly recommend Lake Forest to anyone needing top quality veterinary care, even if they have to drive an hour to the clinic, as I do.  It’s worth the drive!!
