Family Vet Lake St Louis provides veterinary services for a variety of conditions, illness, and injuries found in our pet patients. We have trained and dedicated veterinarians and nurses on staff. We have onsite diagnostic equipment to perform blood work, x-rays, ultrasound, and an in-house pharmacy allowing timely results and treatment of our patients. Cases that require 24-hour critical nursing care or more advanced diagnostics and treatments will be first stabilized and then referred to the specialty hospitals if necessary.
