LAKETOWN IS BETTER
I have worked in a toxic veterinary environment in the past, and I hated it! I knew there had to be a different and better way to do things. My wife and I bought Laketown Animal Hospital three years ago because we wanted to create something phenomenal. We wanted a clinic that practiced high quality medicine, encouraged teamwork and collaboration among the doctors, valued continuing education, had a great support staff, and treated its employees like human beings. And you know what? We’re doing it.
It IS different, and it IS better.
We have worked hard to make Laketown a great place to work, a place where people want to come to work every day, and a place that builds loyalty with the staff and the clients. The doctors here are allowed to practice medicine without someone looking over their shoulder and dictating how to manage cases. We consult with each other on numerous cases, which allows for continuity of care and provides each pet with over 80 years of veterinary experience.
And we do it all in a beautiful 9000 square foot building!
In addition to practicing great medicine, we pay well and provide great benefits. How? We don’t put all the profits in our pockets; we roll them back into the clinic and our people. We want people to make a career at Laketown and enjoy what they do. And we understand that people have lives. They have families. They have hobbies. We create individualized schedules which allow people to enjoy things outside of work.
Part - time? Full - time? We can do that!
Want to work part time a couple of days per week? Want to work a light full-time schedule? Want to work twelve hour shifts with a 4 hour break in the middle of the day to work out? Want to earn as much as possible and get as much experience as possible? Want to create a schedule around your needs and the needs of the practice?
Excellent! We can do that!
Plus, we have fun every day while still taking our jobs seriously. Check us out; you won't be disappointed.

Springfield, the capital of Illinois, is a big city with a small-town feel, located an hour and a half from St. Louis and 3 hours from Chicago. Springfield is the home to three universities, an airport, a medical school, and two hospitals. Springfield and the surrounding communities have a cost of living that is less than the national average with top-rated schools and a stable job market due to the large number of jobs in government and healthcare.
Laketown Animal Hospital is a small animal hospital located in central Illinois with four veterinarians on staff. We are family owned and operated and have been in the Springfield area since 1961. Our mission is to provide quality healthcare with the highest standards of compassion; to partner with our clients to nurture and preserve the human-animal bond; and to promote the welfare of pets. Laketown Animal Hospital is proud to be an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).
