About Dake Veterinary Clinic:

Dr. Charles A. Dake began practicing veterinary medicine in Lawrence county in 1969. He had an ambulatory practice until 1996. Upon graduating from the University of Missouri Veterinary school, Dr. Chuck Dake returned to Lawrence County and opened the doors to our practice in November 1996. Dake Veterinary Clinic is a full service animal hospital providing services to companion and large animals in Lawrence and surrounding counties.

As a mixed animal practice, our medical staff and facility have the flexibility to provide a quality degree of veterinary care while maintaining the local, small town, family-like feel that you would expect from your veterinarian. We are prepared to offer a wide range of services for companion animals as well as haul-in facilities for large animals' medical needs. We also understand that providing the best care to our farm clients, especially those with beef cattle and/or horses, requires the ability to bring staff and medical resources to your farm.

We are commited to supporting the health and well-being of all animals, we do this by practicing preventative medicine. Our medical training and experience has taught us that affordable preventative medicine is the best means to not only protect the health of your animals, but to reduce the lifetime cost of care. For our large animal clients, this also means being able to help their operation perform at the highest level of production.

Preventative medicine includes thorough wellness exams, vaccines tailored to the needs of your pet or livestock, nutritional counseling, lost pet microchip ID, internal and external parasite preventatives, and more. Should your pet or large animal become ill or injured, our facility and farm-call veterinarians are equipped with modern diagnostic technologies, medical resources, and surgical equipment and expertise to meet most needs. It is our goal to quickly diagnose and adequately treat any issue affecting your pets and animals.

Dake Veterinary Clinic invites you browse through our website to learn more about our staff, facility, and services and then give us a call to set up an appointment! We truly believe that you'll quickly see why we have been a mainstay of pet owners and large animal owners throughout Lawrence County since our founding in 1996.
