“Thank you Lakeside for helping the Herrin Animal Control dogs and cats! I don’t know what we would do without your kindness and compassion! Whenever I call you always make room for our emergency animals I cannot thank you enough! To the Energy office staff you are the best thank you for always being there when I ask a million questions!” -Tabitha M.

“Dr. Verbeck and the staff at the Energy office were patient and kind with our elderly Lab today! Dr. Verbeck took extra time to explain and prepare a written treatment plan for our ‘other child.’ Couldn’t be more pleased! -Lori M.

Client Survey


Integrity, Service and Excellence is more than just a logo for this veterinary hospital. From high end diagnostics (ultrasound & digital x-ray imaging with a 1 hour turn around time to a complete report from a board certified radiologist) to unremarkable professionalism and true compassion. Lakeside has it all. I have always had pets and throughout my life been to several veterinary clinics/hospitals in various geographical locations always looking for the absolute best in pet care, regardless of the cost. I have never had an experience even compare to the experience my pets and I have at Lakeside. I am not a number and neither are my pets. The new owner WANTS to know how his clients feel about their experience, regardless. Seasoned staff with technical expertise. A veterinarian actually calls to check on their patient AFTER they get my money, who does that?!? Finally, someone’s got it right and top notch all the way! Thank you!” -Jami H.

“With my warmest regard…this staff is incredible, dedicated, genuine and simply awesome! I have three dogs and three cats and I can say with utmost certainty that my furry family love these folks thanks for being there for us…you are wonderful people at Lakeside. We appreciate you. -Mary C.
