Who We Are

Lake Area Animal Hospital is a one-of-a-kind veterinary practice that provides healthcare for small companion animals in the Lake Charles area. We are unique because our doctors and staff strive to be progressive by consistently offering the most up-to-date diagnostics and treatments available while maintaining old-fashioned values such as personalized customer service and genuine compassion for patients and pet parents alike.

We are a full service companion animal hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical, and wellness care. Our broad range of treatments and procedures includes boarding, emergency services, surgery, in-clinic diagnostics, laser therapy, dental care, digital radiography, ultrasound, wellness, preventative care, and more.

Lake Area Animal Hospital has supplied steadfast, reliable animal care to pet owners in Lake Charles and the surrounding communities of Moss Bluff, Grand Lake, Cameron, Iowa, Welsh, Bell City, and Ragley since 1994. In January of 2022, the hospital came under the leadership of Dr. Jamie Houston who has been practicing in Lake Charles since 2005. She looks forward to continuing the excellent care that clients have grown accustomed to at the hospital.

At Lake Area Animal Hospital, we value all of our patients and clients and the role we get to play in their pets’ healthcare. We uphold the highest standards of medical care while delivering unsurpassed service to our clients. We believe that supplying our clients with education and assistance in all aspects of animal care is of the utmost importance. Additionally, as we are firm supporters of the human-animal bond, we believe that people live more enriched, longer, and happier lives with animals. Therefore, it is our passion to provide the most compassionate and dedicated care to our patients.

Our Mission

Our mission at Lake Area Animal Hospital is to continually evolve to provide top notch customer service through client feedback, education, and the latest diagnostic capabilities. We will strive to recognize and preserve the human-animal bond, and work to tailor a plan best suited to you and your pets’ needs.

We welcome all new clients to our veterinary practice and we invite you to stop by and see us, or give us a call to schedule your appointment today. We do our best to accommodate our clients’ busy schedules by offering Drop Off Appointments as well as regularly scheduled in-person appointments.
