Lee Capone D.V.M.
Dr. Lee Capone, Lakeshore’s previous owner and founder, has decades of experience behind him and is still very much a part of our team. He regularly consults about his long standing clients and is here on a part time basis. He can also be seen here in the afternoons grabbing a cup of coffee and catching up.
Dr. Capone graduated from the 3rd class of Veterinary Medicine at LSU in 1979. When he opened, Lakeshore Veterinary Hospital was only the third veterinary practice to open in Mandeville. He has always devoted himself to making sure he stayed at the cutting edge of his field. Dr. Capone says, "The philosophy at Lakeshore Veterinary Hospital is quality medicine, not quantity medicine.” Dr. Gautreaux, Dr. Wheeler and Renee Purdy are committed to maintaining these core values as they take up the helm of Lakeshore Veterinary Hospital.
