Northern Lakes Veterinary Clinic

At the Northern Lakes Veterinary Clinic, we consider caring our specialty.  We are your other family doctor, providing four-legged family members with compassionate, quality care. Our small animal doctors believe that medical and technical abilities are the basis for good care, but great care is only possible because of their passion for pets and understanding the love they bring to our lives.

We have two locations to serve our clients. Our original clinic in Cumberland has continued to grow, with new clients from Rice Lake, Turtle Lake, Barron and surrounding areas. Our clinic in Shell Lake outgrew its original office and a new facility was constructed in 2009. We now serve clients from Spooner, Hayward, Minong and many other towns around us. Our clinic is locally owned by veterinarians who are part of our community and value the quality of life in this great area.

Northern Lakes offers the VIN Client Information Library

On this site, you will find information about our services and our staff, helpful forms to assist you and an extensive Pet Library for you to search for additional animal health care information. Please call our offices today at (715) 822-3535 or (715) 468-7007 for all your pet health care needs.
