In today’s world, medical emergencies happen more frequently than we would like. When pets get hurt in an accident or they have a life-threatening medical condition, they need emergency care just as humans do. The DoveLewis team of board-certified veterinarians and skilled technicians are ready 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide proficient, compassionate care.

DoveLewis is equipped and prepared to handle any pet emergency with skill, speed and compassion. We treat all kinds of emergencies, have the ability to offer all levels of care and are outfitted to care for even the most critical patients. One or more veterinarians and technicians are on site at all times. Additionally, our staff includes three board-certified critical care specialists (that means they’ve spent an extra 3 years studying critical care medicine), so you can be sure your pet will get the best care.
Emergency care involves stabilizing the patient and may include placing intravenous catheters, administering IV fluids, pain medications, oxygen therapy and sometimes blood or plasma transfusions. Our in-house laboratory, radiology and ultrasound capabilities enable us to get crucial diagnostic information very quickly. Our Blood Bank program guarantees that our canine and feline patients have access to a safe and adequate blood supply. Additional surgeons and technical staff are on call should the need arise.
