Our Practice

Lakeview Animal Clinic was established in 1965. It was purchased by the current owners, Drs. Steve Edwards and Pete Blinkilde, in 1989. We are a full service mobile veterinary practice that provides care for all farm animals such as dairy & beef cattle, “small ruminants” including sheep & goats, and llama & alpaca, as well as other species including chickens, turkeys, deer, buffalo, pigs, etc. Unfortunately, we do not service horses, as there are many other veterinarians in the area that specialize in equine veterinary service.

Our general practice area includes MontcalmMecostaIonia and Kent counties, although we find ourselves in other areas on various occasions.

Lakeview Animal Clinic has a small animal veterinarian in the clinic 3 days a week.

See Town and Country Animal Clinic’s page for more information about our small animal service.

About Us

We have three large animal veterinarians; Dr. Steve Edwards, Dr. Karen Peterson and Dr. Erin Shaw. We also have two receptionists, Carolyn Sorsen and Amber Louck. All of our large animal doctors are Michigan State graduates and are members of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) “cattle veterinarians”, and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).  We regularly attend continuing education events throughout the year. Dr. Steve Edwards is also a board certified diplomat of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specializing in Dairy Medicine.
