Comprehensive Veterinary Services: Ensuring Your Pet's Well-being

Ensuring your pet's health and happiness encompasses more than daily meals and walks. Comprehensive veterinary services, offering a range of preventive and specialized care, play a pivotal role in maintaining their well-being.

Notably, DoveLewis is the only facility in Oregon with certification at any level (I, II, or III) from VECCS.

Diagnostic Testing: Identifying Health Issues

At DoveLewis, we employ various diagnostic tools to identify and manage health issues as early as possible. Our veterinary diagnostic testing includes blood tests, urinalysis, fecal exams, and advanced imaging technologies like X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, and ultrasound. These tests are vital for uncovering hidden diseases, assessing organ function, and helping in the early detection of conditions like cancer, heart disease, and more. Timely diagnosis through these state-of-the-art tools allows for more effective treatment and a better prognosis for your pet.

Surgical Services: Advanced Care When Needed

Surgical intervention can be a crucial component of veterinary care. DoveLewis provides a full spectrum of surgical services, such as orthopedic surgeries, and emergency interventions. Our state-of-the-art surgical suites have advanced anesthesia and monitoring systems to ensure your pet's safest environment. Post-op care is carefully monitored in our 24/7 ICU with at-home care instructions and recommendations provided

Holistic and Integrative Veterinary Medicine

Recognizing that every pet is unique, DoveLewis embraces a holistic approach to veterinary care. This includes integrating conventional medical treatments with alternative therapies such as :

  • Acupuncture 
  • Multimodal pain management 
  • Nutraceutical and dietary recommendations 
  • Pain vacations: In-patient pain management for the day 
  • Emotional support: Discussion of pet wellbeing, quality of life 

Our integrative veterinary medicine practices are designed to treat the whole pet, focusing on optimizing health and preventing disease through a balance of mind, body, and environment. This can be especially beneficial for managing chronic conditions, improving mobility, reducing pain and inflammation, and enhancing overall wellness.

Exotic Animal Care

Owners of exotic pets, including reptiles, birds, and small mammals, frequently face challenges finding veterinarians prepared to care for their unique animals. This difficulty is because most veterinarians need more training and education in treating these specific species. Veterinarians must undergo specialized training to offer superior medical care to exotic pets. However, this necessity leads to a scarcity of adequately equipped veterinarians to offer medical services to these kinds of pets.

At DoveLewis, we are well-equipped to cater to the unique needs of your exotic pet, be it a bird, reptile, small mammal, or any other species. Our veterinarians possess expert knowledge and experience to provide customized care that best suits your pet's specific requirements, ensuring it receives optimal care.
