Dr Havens
Dr. Havens moved to Victoria in 2011, after graduating from Washington State University. Shortly after getting settled in a local small animal practice, she began filling in at the hospital, and quickly made the transition to full time emergency medicine. Dr. Havens enjoys a team approach to veterinary medicine, and ultimately strives for the most optimal quality of life for all of her patients.

When she is not in the office, Dr. Havens can be found enjoying time with her family, taking her dog on an up-Island adventure, or playing sports.

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.

Triage/waiting:

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.
