Companion Care Veterinary Clinic

6600 Lake Street
Lake Charles, LA 70605


Why pets love our boarding facility-


   Our boarders sleep on Kuranda Beds! They are orthopedic supportive, chew-proof and easy to clean.  They keep pets off the floor and are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 

  We use Adaptil diffusers in our canine boarding area and Feliway diffusers in our feline area.  These devices release a calming pheromone that is scientifically proven to help calm nervous dogs and cats.


We have spacious outdoor runs for lots of playtime during nice weather.  And all of our kennels are comfortable and climate controlled when the weather is not so nice.  Big or small, your pets stay with us will be comfortable and fun!

where we can't wait to see your pet!

We are a family owned and operated total pet care facility, offering veterinary care, boarding, grooming and training all under one roof!  We are animal people and our goal is to care for your pet as if he or she were our own.  We have a full-service veterinary clinic with sate of the art diagnostics like computerized x-ray and in-house blood machines.   Our boarding facility is one of the best in the Lake Area with climate-controlled individual kennels, a separate cat room and plenty of outdoor playtime for dogs in large, individual runs.  We also offer excellent grooming! Our dog groomers Tiffany Wilkinson and Ashton Ezernack have a collective 25 years of grooming experience! Tiffany is certified by the National Dog Groomer's Association and has won numerous awards at grooming shows nation-wide.  Ashton has been a successful groomer in the Lake Area for several years.  We also offer dog training with our AKC-certified dog trainer Savannah Hunt.

We are a single doctor practice and we value our veterinarian-client relationships!  You will see Dr. Grudzien at every visit and be greeted by our friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our philosophy is that a well-informed pet caretaker can make better decisions about the health of his or her pet, and making sure that you fully understand your pet's issue and its treatment is our top priority.  Dr. Grudzien has been in practice since 1998 and has practiced here since 2008.  In 2014 she purchased the clinic from Dr. Johnny Reina and we became Companion Care Veterinary Clinic. We see a wide variety of patients.  Our small animal clients include dogs and cats, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs and even the occasional chicken!  Dr. Grudzien also sees equine patients for preventative care, medical treatment and lameness.
