Dr. Jen van der Lee joined Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital in 2016, after working for 4 years in general companion animal practice. She has a special interest in exotic animal medicine and is expanding her interest into emergency medicine.

When Dr. van der Lee is not working, she is exploring Victoria, doing yoga or going to the gym. She lives to eat and is always open for good food suggestions. She also appreciates our beautiful weather and takes advantage of the great outdoors by kayaking, fishing, hiking and boating. At home she enjoys the company of her little black and white kitty named Alley. One day, she hopes a big adorable dog will join her family.

Emergency Care

Emergencies happen. When they do, our highly trained emergency veterinary healthcare team is dedicated to helping you and your companion any time of the day. No appointment is necessary. Whenever possible, our veterinarians work in consultation with your primary care veterinarian.


We do everything possible to ensure that every patient receives timely access to veterinary care. Like human emergency rooms, we operate on a triage system – this means that more seriously ill or injured patients are seen before less seriously ill or injured patients. During high-volume times patients with minor ailments and injuries can experience longer wait times.

What happens “in the back”?

At times, potentially seriously injured or ill patients may be taken straight into our hospital’s triage room or treatment areas based on our triage system. These patients will be assess by a doctor immediately and receive life-saving treatment such as fluids and oxygen and/or pain medication when appropriate.
