IMG_4267Dr. Zach Raptosh is a Nampa Idaho native, and his family has been a part of the Nampa community for four generations.  Dr Zach has enjoyed caring for animals as long as he can remember.  As a boy, he raised cattle and horses and cared for the pets on his family’s small farm located south of Nampa.


Dr. Zach has turned his love of animals into a career. After high school, he took a job working for local veterinarian Jay R Green in Star, ID. It was during that time that he developed his passion for veterinary medicine.  He is a graduate of Boise State University and attended veterinary school at Colorado State University. In 2014, Dr. Zach built Lake Shore Animal Hospital from the ground-up to be able to practice quality veterinary medicine in the community where he grew up.


Dr Zach enjoys the variety of mixed animal medicine. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family and pets, the outdoors, team-roping, and raising beef cattle. This year, he welcomed his first embryo-transfer calf to the farm. He can often be seen driving around town in his vet truck with his Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, by his side.
