I was disheartened when I learned the puppy I adopted last year had distemper. The first vet I visited had little hope, prepared me for the worst and sent me home. Thankfully, my sister recommended I obtain a second opinion from her vet, Dr. Wiltshire. His care, devotion, knowledge, professionalism and kindness were evident immediately. Dr. W and his staff were realistic, yet hopeful, as they accurately treated the usually terminal disease. During the entire process, Dr. W was readily available to us at his office or by phone/email, responding at all hours as he expertly coached us through the dreadful disease. Today, Sofi is a healthy and happy puppy, and I couldn't imagine trusting her care to any other doctor but Dr. Wiltshire. Since the distemper, Dr. W. has diagnosed and treated Sofi for skin allergies and impacted anal glands. In all cases, the initial advisable treatment was the least invasive/expensive. The prices are fair, options are presented without bias, and the staff is responsive, professional, friendly and compassionate. The entire office is a class act. I have had the pleasure of recommending Dr. W. to two friends and they experienced the same exemplary service. I am proud to recommend Lakeside Animal Clinic.
