Dr. Lewis and Hospital Administrator Jennifer Harnden

Our Expert Veterinarians Are Here to Help

Our veterinarians are dedicated and highly skilled professionals. They are extremely capable and proficient in diagnostics, pain management, emergency treatments, and surgery. At least one of these professionals is always available and prepared to provide your pet with needed urgent care. From a snake bite to a car accident, a gastric torsion surgery to a c-section – or anything else in between, they are ready.

But our doctors are only a part of our critical care team; they are assisted by an incredible staff. We are extremely proud of our nurses, veterinary assistants, certified veterinary assistants, technicians and Registered Veterinary Technicians. Together, our staff possesses vast experience in veterinary medicine. And their passion and dedication for providing the best possible care for your pet only add to this knowledge and experience.

If, unfortunately, your pet is ill or is critically injured when your family veterinarian is not available, you can depend on us to be here.

Animal Emergency Clinic North East is fully staffed and ready!
