Originally from St. Paul, MN Dr. Daniel Lewer earned his B.A. in Biology from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN. He was then accepted to OSU College of Veterinary Medicine and earned his Doctorate in 2008. Upon graduating from OSU, Dr. Lewer moved with his family to the Oregon coast to practice mixed animal medicine and also provide veterinary service to all the animals at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Dr. Lewer has subsequently treated and published on how to treat species of all variety that would include cats, dogs, harbor seals, sea lions, sea otters, various avian species and all pocket pets. He is a member of the Oregon Veterinary Medical Association, American Veterinary Medicine Association, the International Association for Aquatic Animal Medicine and the American Animal Hospital Association. Dr. Lewer lectures often at the veterinary school in Corvallis and every summer travels with the veterinary students to Nicaragua to provide routine care and surgeries to areas of need. His professional interests include emergency and critical care medicine, surgery, laser therapy and exotic animal veterinary medicine. Corvallis is his home with his family of four humans and too many to count animals. It is not uncommon to see him and his family mountain biking in McDonald forest and or fishing out on the coast. Dr. Lewer purchased Willamette Veterinary Hospital in 2017 with co-owner Dr. Kalenius and is proud to have kept WVH locally owned and operated. His goal as owner is to practice the best medicine every day, every chart, every case while creating a comfortable environment for all pets, clients and staff.
