About Us

The Northeast Indiana Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital (NIVES) has provided the highest level of specialized small animal health care to our community since 2004. We grew out of a well-established, AAHA certified, primary care clinic originally started on this location in 1967. Over the past 12 years, we have grown into one of the largest small animal emergency and specialty hospitals in the state.

NIVES is Certified as a Level II Critical Care Facility

Level II Critical Care Facility

Our facility is a 14,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art hospital with board-certified specialists in cardiology, internal medicine, rehabilitation therapy and small animal surgery. We also employ a committed team of doctors, dedicated solely to emergency and critical care. In 2015, NIVES became the only veterinary hospital in the state of Indiana to be certified as a Level II Critical Care Facility.
