Objective: Lakeview Animal Hospital is a mixed animal practice. The cattle practice is mostly beef cow/calf. Equine work is primarily ranch, pleasure and trail horses, with some surgeries performed. The clinic is well equipped for both small and large animal work. In house lab, digital radiography, radio surgery unit, and portable hydraulic chutes are in use. Ranching and wood products are the major enterprises. Nice place to live and raise a family. We average over 300 days of sunshine per year. Skiing, fishing, hunting, hiking, riding, snowmobiling, and ATV riding are all local recreational options only minutes away.

Other personnel: Three DVM’s, nine or ten full time support staff, two or three part time support staff most of the time.
Practice strengths and emphasis: Beef herd health management and preventative medicine; equine medicine, surgery, and dentistry; and small animal medicine, surgery and dentistry. Equine surgeries are mostly minor such as lacerations, castrations, cryptorchidectomies, ovariectomies, hernias, and periosteal stripping. Small animal surgeries include most soft tissue surgeries and orthopedics such as fracture repair and cruciate ligament repair.
Practice area: Lakeview is located 90 miles east of Klamath Falls in south central Oregon. Most of our work is within a 60 mile radius, but some of our herd work is up to 120 miles away. The climate is high desert with good mix of forest, desert, and high mountain valleys. Lakeview at 4800 feet in elevation is Oregon’s tallest incorporated town.
