Who We Are

Stave Lake Veterinary Hospital is a full-service facility run by Dr. Christine Smetschka, Dr. Anita Glups, and Dr. Roy Worbets, a highly skilled veterinary team with years of experience in their field. We treat pets of all types, ages, and breeds for various health issues. Our goal is to help your pet enjoy the best life by staying healthy and fit throughout its lifespan. Our commitment is to provide the loving, conscientious services your furry friend needs to be happy and healthy at every stage of life.

Services We Provide

Stave Lake Veterinary Hospital offers preventive, medical, surgical, and emergency pet care to pets in our local community. Here’s what you can expect from our veterinarian and our dedicated team:

Preventive care – We offer preventive pet care services in the form of annual wellness exams, vaccinations, spay & neuter surgery, parasite control, dental care, and nutritional counseling. Through preventive care, we strive to keep our pet patients as healthy as possible year after year. If your pet develops health problems, we can catch them early during a wellness exam, so it can get immediate treatment to expedite its recovery. 

Diagnostics & Conditions Treated - Our diagnostic services (digital x-rays, ultrasound, lab work) help uncover hidden medical issues quickly to avoid delays in your pet’s treatment. We treat such medical issues as kidney problems, diabetes, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, digestive issues, intestinal problems, and arthritis.

Surgery - In addition to spay & neuter surgery, our veterinarians can perform soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery, tumor removal, dental extractions, fracture repair, exploratory surgery, and more.
