Providing quality pet care since 1939
Lakeside Animal Hospital, Ltd located at 211 West Bender Road in Glendale, is celebrating 75 years of providing high quality veterinary care and extraordinary service to pets and their human families. The hospital is locally owned and operated by Dr. James Frank, DVM, and Dr. William Rice, DVM. Lakeside is among the 15% of small animal practices in the U.S. and Canada that are accredited by AAHA, The American Animal Hospital Association, which requires its members to maintain competency in over 900 standards of veterinary practice. Dr. Frank and Dr. Rice head the team of six doctors, offering a wide range of pet care including internal medicine, ultrasound, surgery, behavioral consults, dentistry, humane euthanasia, avian, reptilian, and exotic animal medicine.
The doctors are assisted by professionally trained, experienced and certified veterinary technicians. Administrative and other support personnel add to the excellent service received by Lakeside clients and their pets on a daily basis. All staff members are passionate about pets and most have several furry or feathered friends at home.
Today, although the original building has been replaced by a newer, larger facility, Lakeside Animal Hospital stands in nearly the same location as it did in 1939 when the headline of the Whitefish Bay Herald read, “Animal Hospital in Whitefish Bay Cures Ills of Family Pets.” Now, serving new clients in addition to second and third generations of Lakeside patrons, we’re still all about pets and their people.

In the spring of 2014, college admissions expert Christina Craig decided to use her wealth of knowledge to help Milwaukee’s high school students make sense of the college search and application process--she opened Christina Craig College Counseling, a college counseling business with services tailored to fit each individual student. Christina helps Milwaukee’s high school students become savvy college shoppers, empowering them to take control of their own application process. Christina takes pride in making the college application process stress-free and even a little bit fun for each student. “There are over 4000 colleges and universities in the United States and there’s a great fit out there for every student,” says Craig. “Many families are daunted by the college application process; they aren’t sure where to begin and it becomes overwhelming. I’m here to alleviate the stress surrounding this process and to even make it enjoyable.” Craig has nearly 10 years of experience in the college admissions industry. After graduating from college in 2003, she worked as an admissions counselor at the State University of NY and, from 2005 to 2007, she worked as an independent college counselor at a national college counseling firm helping over 200 high school students with the college application and essay writing process. In 2007, she moved to the other side of the desk to work as an admissions counselor at Marquette University. Most recently, she has served on the Due West Education Council helping Chinese high school students with their college essays as an editor. Craig graduated from Columbia University where she was a captain of the women’s varsity swim team as well as a student worker in the admissions office. She holds two graduate degrees from Marquette University, an MA in Political Science and a Graduate Certificate in Digital Storytelling.
