They are accommodating to my senior dog and very sweet to him. They’re knowledgeable, reassuring and take time to answer my questions. The office staff are kind and professional as well.

Not Your Average Veterinarian

We had the privilege of speaking with Wendy Novak, Practice Manager at Lake Harriet Veterinary.

Our first question for Wendy was what sets Lake Harriet Veterinary apart from the other veterinarians in Minnesota. Wendy told us she truly believes that each and every staff member passionately cares about the pets they are entrusted with.

We also took a moment to ask Wendy what their mission is at Lake Harriet Veterinary and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what she had to say:

“[We strive] to treat people well — with kindness and compassion — so everything else falls into place. That also includes employees. If you treat people well, then you will produce passionate and engaged employees.”

We cannot argue with her there!

Building Success Through Kindness

It is no secret that Lake Harriet Veterinary excels at compassionately serving its animal patients. What’s more, Wendy went on to share that there really is no secret behind their success:

“[We seek to always] be kind and [to] treat all clients with compassion”.

There are many business owners out there looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Wendy’s expert advice for those business owners:

“Build a strong bond with your employees and customers as a foundation and the reputation will come. You have to start with the foundation first and then the rest will be easily sustainable.”

Wendy’s final thoughts go out to the team at Lake Harriet Veterinary:

“Thanks so much to our team — we have the best team ever.”
