Dr. Byam and her team are proud to provide high-quality care to pets and pet owners in the Elk Grove community.
Abel Pet Clinic is also associated with many veterinary specialists in the Elk Grove area. This allows us to offer additional diagnostic and surgical services to our clients. These specialists include Radiologists, Ultrasonographers, Orthopedic & Soft-Tissue Surgeons, and Cardiologists, all of whom are board-certified. These specialists are travelling veterinarians who come into our Pet Clinic and work as a part of our team to serve your pet.

Dr. Kelly Byam
Dr. Lake received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2009 from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Originally from Northern California, she was happy to get back to the west coast where she completed a one-year small animal rotating internship at the Animal Specialty Group in L.A. Since 2010, she has been working as a small animal general practitioner for both Village Oak Veterinary Hospital and Manteca Veterinary Hospital, located in the Central Valley. In 2015, she moved to Elk Grove with her husband and two step sons. After 4 years of commuting, she has decided to relocate her work closer to home and will be joining the team at Abel Pet Clinic in January 2020. Her special interests include radiology, dentistry, and internal medicine. Outside of the hospital, Dr. Lake enjoys glamping in her travel trailer, hiking, relaxing with family and friends, scrapbooking, and painting. She can occasionally be persuaded to go wine tasting. She has a Golden Retriever named Jada and a Labrador/Pointer mix named Aries, who are spoiled brats!
