What Sets Us Apart From the Pack

With so many choices, deciding on the right veterinary hospital can be confusing. Loftin Veterinary Hospital prides itself on its top-notch medical care and a friendly and warm environment. While there are so many reasons to visit LVH, here’s our top three:

Our History:

For over 20 years, Loftin Veterinary Hospital has served the Youngsville, Lafayette, and Broussard  communities. The doors of LVH were open long before Ernest Gallet Elementary, Sugar Mill Pond and Fieldcrest subdivisions, and the numerous grocery stores and restaurants that now grace our bustling city. In 1997, Dr. William Loftin, Jr. proudly founded Loftin Veterinary Hospital. The first patient to walk through the door was Wilbur, a pot-bellied pig. Since that time, his family has grown, his building has grown, and staff faces have changed. However, his business goal has remained simple and constant: provide the best veterinary medical care to his patients and provide the best possible customer service to his clients.

Our Medicine:

LVH offers high quality preventive care, diagnostic care, and surgical procedures to keep dogs and cats healthy and happy. What sets Dr. Loftin and his team apart is their ability to provide the most modern veterinary medical care with an old-fashioned, common-sense approach often lacking in modern medicine. Communication and education are priorities, and clients are given choices in treatment plans to help their dogs and cats live a more complete and healthy life.

Our Team:

LVH is an extended family, and Dr. Loftin takes pride in recruiting and developing the best staff and veterinarians. The team members at LVH are dedicated to loving animals and caring for their owners. Many of the veterinary technicians have been part of the team for over a decade! This means that they develop long-term relationships with clients and patients, which improves patient care and client communication.

"My two fur babies are in the best of care with Loftin"

Never a bad experience , always a professional and friendly. My two fur babies are in the best of care with Loftin. -Crystal

Talk about having your faith restored in humanity. We recently rescued a cat someone dumped off in a bag. He needed to be tested for infectious disease, neutered and vaccinated. These guys were SO amazing. I told them what happened and they didn’t try to get me to pay for all kinds of things I didn’t need like every other vet clinic I called. They knew it was urgent we get him seen quickly and money was tight. They were so kind and understanding. We just moved to this area and I know who we’ll be taking all our pets to from now on. Great job Loftin....best vet clinic I’ve been to in a long time and certainly in this area.

Have been going to Loftin for nine years, and i've noticed the caring attitude that is pervasive with the entire staff. My dog Qtip, who is quite a nervous Nellie, loves to visit Loftin. They take care of all her needs, from boarding to bathing.

Amazing care while still affordable. The techs and doctors care for my dog and cats like they are their own. One of my cats got sick very suddenly as I was heading out of town, so they boarded him and called to update me as his condition changed. So glad I found them! Never going anywhere else in the Lafayette area!

While visiting with my son in the Youngsville area, my dachshund, Wolfe, fell head-first from a bed. I was very concerned because he couldn’t raise up his head, and he had difficulties walking. Dachshunds are known for incurring back injuries. So, I read and considered reviews online for several local vets. Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to have access to the best of Houston TX veterinary clinics, and I hoped to find the same kind of care in the Lafayette area. I chose Loftin Veterinary Hospital, and I am glad that I did. Dr. Michel is a patient and thoughtful man. In a word, brilliant. I left the clinic feeling secure that Wolfe was expertly diagnosed, the treatment adequate to his needs, which means that the costs were fair.

We found a puppy wandering around school. She was cold, wet and shaking violently. I brought her to another veterinary clinic in town to ask if they would watch her for the day and vaccinate her. I was treated so poorly by the receptionist that I just turned around and walked out (some people just aren't a good fit for the job that they do).

I searched for another clinic near school and found Lofton. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like they actually wanted to help me and the little puppy. I felt empathy, compassion and kindness. They knew how desperate I was and they totally exceeded my expectations.
