They took excellent care of our dog the doctor called which I like very much with a concern of his ears which turned out he had an infection they took care of it he’s recovering just fine .i highly recommend lake forest animal clinic!!!!

OH MY GOODNESS! This place is fantastic! If I could give 10 stars, it still would not be enough. We have a little senior guy and he got really sick with diarrhea and vomiting. Dr. Byers, Dr. Self, and even Dr. Trope(we didn’t officially meet but I know he was consulted) are AMAZING! They called us multiple times a day to keep us updated, patiently explained their diagnosis and care, and most of all genuinely CARE about our little furry one. He is recovering well and the entire staff including Felicia, Kim, Karen, and others(sorry I couldn’t get all the names) are so sweet and patient as it was/continues to be very emotional with all the medicines and various ailments. It truly feels like we are “at home” with our care there and we cannot thank ALL of you enough! Please don’t hesitate to come here for genuine, 110% care, and please note they ALWAYS follow up and love how Dr. Byers treats our furry one just like her own.  You must take your pet here and you will receive the best, PERSONAL care in all of OC! Thank you Lake Forest Animal Clinic! Hearing your voices from the front desk, the vets, and those who take care of our little guy in the back makes us breathe a little easier and truly helps with his overall recovery. You guys are the BEST! 🙂

Super friendly staff.  I took Suki in for her free ($58 value) first time wellness exam.  You can print off a coupon from their website.  The staff was really nice and we even received a free puppy welcome kit with a sample of Frontline in it.  There was a sample of food and a kibble measuring cup.  Score!  Dr. Byers was really amiable and she had a lot of information for me regarding Suki’s care.  Luckily Suki is really healthy and made it through her first official vet visit with flying colors.  Lake Forest Animal Clinic also is the location for Simply Spay & Neuter OC, which is a low cost spay and neuter facility.  They only operate on Wednesdays so definitely make an appointment for your pet if you choose to go this route.  Suki won’t be getting this done until she’s older so we’ll update when that happens.  Glad to find a nice reputable vet’s office in the OC.

We have taken our Pomeranians to Dr, Byers for 6 years and we have always found her and her staff to give exemplary service.  They actually make you feel like family. My oldest pom came to her with some serious conditions, including liver disease, high blood pressure, and Cushing’s disease.  After much in-depth research, she prescribed all the correct medications.  My pom “Quincy” is now in very good health and she will live a longer life because of Dr, Byers. Over the years we have been to many vets with many pets but this experience has certainly been a blessing to us.

Great staff with great prices. I highly recommend them for all your Veterinary needs.

Very happy with their services and prices – we drive all the way from Irvine and don’t mind, as they are always professional, take time, and prices are great (I know exactly what I am paying for). Also, our little pug Chase got neutered here and it was a flawless procedure/process at a great price (very much appreciated!). The Tasker Family

Everyone at Lake Forest Animal Clinic is AMAZING! Dr. Byers and her staff provided excellent care to our 14-year-old Golden Retriever at the end of her life. They treated her with such dignity and love as if she were their own. Dr. Byers went out of her way to make sure we had a special private room and allowed us all the time we needed to be with our beloved pet. Most reviews of Vets address the care that is provided while the pet is healthy- which is VERY important, but what is equally important is the Vet that is there for you at the end of your pet’s life. Thank you, Dr. Byers and all the staff.

We are very pleased with the excellent, caring and professional services we received. The vet tech and vet were so nice, knowledgeable, and friendly with our kitty and his issues. We recommend this vet office wholeheartedly.

Cristal B.

We have been going to Dr. Byers for years, and love her! When it was time to put our last dog down, knowing how scared he was of going to the office, she actually came to our house to put him down for us. It was so much better knowing he was not scared and relaxed when the time came. Great customer service!

I have been taking my elderly dog to Dr. Byers for about five years. My family and I are so happy that we found a place that really cares about him. I feel that Dr. Byers always gives us the best advice and it’s what she would do for her own dogs. When our dog had a serious problem in his mouth, Dr. O’Neil was also very efficient and went out of her way to help us. The staff is also caring and seems to love our dog and want the best for him.

Dr. Byers and her group have taken care of all my pets for almost 20 years; 1 cat and 4 dogs in total. I’ve always found her to be very caring and professional. She is always willing to take the time to answer my questions and consider alternate treatments if needed. Her staff is great, all of them, and they recognize all my pets when we visit. Would definitely recommend Dr. Byers to anyone looking for a good vet!

Harry S.

Dr. Byers and her staff took great care of our dog Dolly for her entire life. Always open and compassionate and ready to offer and provide exceptional care. If another pet comes our way I can assure you that Lake Forest Animal Clinic, Dr. Byers and her staff will once again be our veterinary choice.

I’ve moved around a lot and have been to many different vet clinics, and I can confidently say that LFAC beats them all. Scheduling is always easy and efficient. The vet techs are warm and friendly. Most importantly, the doctors are great.  We especially love Dr. Self. Our cat is 15 years old with many health issues, and Dr. Self always spends time with us to explain our different options. She is genuine and compassionate and I couldn’t ask for a better doctor for my baby. If only I could find a doctor like her for myself! We recently moved further away but are commuting to LFAC because we love it so much. 🙂

I absolutely love Dr. Byers and her crew.  They’ve always struck me as compassionate animal lovers, but also very competent at veterinary care.  My boxer, Duke, has been there since I got him as a puppy.  I originally went there because they have discounted vaccinations on Saturdays, but found myself going back because I had such a good experience there.  They always tried to involve me with the decision making process when weighing different options for care, but were not pushy in forcing a particular treatment.  In case you’re curious my dog has been treated there for being bitten by another dog, demodectic mange, cervical disc herniation, and most recently an ACL tear. Yeah, he gets hurt a lot!  As you may guess, I’ve gotten to know them well and love the care that Duke and I get there.  I highly recommend them!

Nearly one year ago, we found out that we would be moving to Shanghai, China and we wanted to bring both our dog and cat. Moving to China with pets is a very complicated, bureaucratic affair, and Lake Forest Animal Clinic has made the process easier every step of the way. I hired a “pet relocation” company to help me with the move; however, it was Nikki and other staff members at Lake Forest Animal Clinic who truly made the process possible. She had to do a lot of paperwork and field many calls from the relocation company…far beyond the usual call of duty…and she always did it with patience and a smile. I recommend this veterinary clinic 100% and will miss their competence and caring after we move. Thank you Lake Forest Animal Clinic!


Great place super friendly love the follow-up messages post surgery. Very personal and personable.

Always caring services for our pets!

Steve M.

I started going to Lake Forest Animal Clinic a couple years ago and could not be happier. The staff is always friendly and helpful, both on the phone and in person. The prices are much better than my previous vet! I really like both Dr. Byers and Dr. Trope and so do my animals! They have clinics for low-cost vaccines and spay and neuter. I feel very comfortable here and trust them with my precious pets. When I ran into the gal from MY doctor’s office I figured this was a good place! I highly recommend Lake Forest Animal Clinic!!

Vonnie B.

We have been bringing our animals to Lake Forest Animal Clinic for over 14 years now. I love the staff and they are always friendly and helpful. The doctors take time to listen and provide a variety of options whenever possible to best manage our pets’ care. I always feel confident and comfortable taking our fur babies there and we are treated like we’re part of a family. I would highly recommend this clinic!

Kimberly D.

I got my two kittens all 3-5 months age initial shots done here on Saturdays when they have discounted prices. Now my kittens are a year old and will definitely be going back to Lake Forest Animal Clinic for one-year shots. Also, I got my both Kittens (1 male and 1 female) Spayed at this clinic. They have very reasonable prices. Very satisfied.

Jia A.

I first came to Lake Forest Animal Clinic for low-cost spaying of two kittens, and have now made it my clinic of choice for all vet services. Dr. Byers is thorough, knowledgeable, and approachable. The staff members seem to be true animal lovers and are gentle with the animals and friendly with their humans. They also give you a follow-up phone call after appointments, even if it’s just been for a simple checkup visit. Prices are more reasonable than other clinics I’ve visited too. I almost look forward to taking my cats to the vet!

Cynthia S.

I have taken my pets for the last 25 years to the Lake Forest Animal Hospital. They are always very kind, loving and professional with all of the animals. The office staff is all very friendly, kind and very good at their jobs. Dr. Byers has always been very professional and obviously cares for all of the animals that she sees. In addition, she works with the families to make the most informed decisions about the pet’s care and treatment. They do low-cost vaccination and spay clinics so that everyone can afford their services and keep their animals healthy and well cared for. Alma, the groomer has been at the clinic for 14 years and does a fabulous job of cutting and grooming with patience and care for each animal. Thank you Lake Forest doctors and staff for always being there for us.

Susan C.

We have been taking our three Pomeranians to Dr. Byers for over 11 years. She and her knowledgeable and caring staff are wonderful I would never go to any other Vet. They are just like family. Although the two older dogs are no longer with us, Dr. Byers did everything in her power to keep them alive. She is a true hero! Love you and God Bless you all.


We have been going to Lake Forest Animal Clinic for over 15 years. We took our first Labrador there and now take our very large (and sometimes unwieldy) 102 lb Labrador there. He actually becomes excited to go. Dr. Byers and the staff are so competent and always kind to both our dog and to us. I am very confident in Dr. Byers’ medical expertise and appreciate her and her staff’s compassion for our dog.
