Located between Fayetteville and Sanford, NC in the Cameron community, our 7-year-old practice has enjoyed rapid growth since its start. Lakeside Animal Hospital is a privately owned, large free-standing practice who’s owners value time with family, compassion for our clients and patients, quality medical care and their team’s wellbeing. Our practice is located within 2 hours of the coast, 1 hour to Raleigh and a day trip to the mountains. We are in a new community filled with restaurants, coffee shops and nice homes at reasonable prices and a low cost of living.
Clients come to us because we Care. In fact, Caring is one of our Core Values along with Competence, Dedication, Dependability, Honesty and Perseverance. We care for our clients by offering open and honest conversations about outcomes, connecting with them as people rather than a revenue source, and offering them a personalized service experience. Our practice is dedicated to supporting our mission to care for animals and constantly works to grow our team’s knowledge. We nurture a collaborative work environment and we have fun doing it. When we are at work we work constantly. Our demand is high because of our reputation for quality, but we control our schedule to allow for proper appointment time allocation for each pet’s situation and needs. Our goal is to close at 6pm and have our team leave by 6:15pm. They have lives and family and we want them to spend time enjoying both. Our staff is important to us and we value their skills, their kind hearts and their sense of humor.
Our capable staff contains multiple licensed Veterinary Technicians and extremely experienced Veterinary Assistants. We highly leverage them by utilizing their skills so our veterinarians can produce and still not be over worked. We have a high support staff to doctor ratio.
Lakeside has a diverse and exciting case load and the ability to manage complex care within our practice. Yet, we are only 1 hour away from NC State College of Veterinary Medicine if specialty referral is needed.
Our ideal associate is detail oriented while still being able to manage multiple cases, leverage staff and remain organized and on time for appointments.

To manage our patients properly we have in-house Idexx bloodwork, SediVue urinalysis, digital radiography, ultrasound and digital dental radiography.
