Since 1995 our teams have been serving pets and families from  Leesburg, Virginia, and beyond with emergency and specialty veterinary care.  We are proud that what began as a small emergency clinic with only a few doctors, has grown to become the largest, most advanced veterinary hospital within 100 miles.

Just as your physician may refer you to a specialist, your primary care veterinarian may refer you and your pet to us for consultations, advanced diagnostics, surgery, or intensive care in any one of 13 areas of expertise.

With a state-of-the-art hospital campus – 2 buildings, nearly 30,000 square feet, 5 surgical suites, a cancer center, physical therapy gym,  MRI/CT Imaging, a complete critical care/ICU, and more – The LifeCentre is unequaled.

With 36 veterinarians, many of whom are board-certified specialists, and a team of nearly 200 passionate veterinary nursing and patient care professionals – The LifeCentre offers unparalleled care.

We also provide emergency and after-hours care anytime your veterinarian is closed with an Emergency room – Open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

The partner practices within The LifeCentre work together to provide the most comprehensive, collaborative, compassionate veterinary care, and if your pet needs us –  we’re here anytime day or night.

 What Pet Owners Are Saying…

Slide52 340x340 - "THANK YOU for your consistent and wonderful care"

“THANK YOU for your consistent and wonderful care”

As a referring veterinarian, I just want to say THANK YOU for your consistent wonderful care. You have gone above and beyond for one of my patients for the past week, and the owner is so grateful—which has, in turn, meant I could focus on my other patients because YOU were helping them. You have...

I appreciated their frankness, and sensitivity…

I can't say enough about this place. I was there, years and years ago, in the old location, with a dog I'd adopted from the shelter. She was spayed by a vet, of their choosing, and when I brought her home, she started hemorrhaging. When I arrived, they asked me about her, how long I'd had her, etc...
Slide58 340x340 - I would recommend TLC to anyone looking for an emergency vet and will use them for all of my emergency pet needs in the future!

TLC was absolutely fantastic when I took my dog, Tucker, for an emergency visit.  His face was so swollen he was unrecognizable and he had bloody stool.  I called before we brought him in and the nurse was waiting for us when we arrived.  We told the nurse all the information we had and she took...

We had to bring my old lady dog to the emergency room last night and I was really impressed with the staff! Dr. Church and staff were welcoming, kind, and very good to my little neurotic dog and my frazzled self in the wee hours of the morning. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate it ❤️ E.G.F -...

We are a current patient at TLC and are beyond elated with the thorough care, patience and commitment they have shown both our family and our critical care puppy! M.B. Facebook
Slide53 340x340 - "Thank You All For Being Superheros"

“Thank You All For Being Superheros”

To the Staff at The Life Centre, I've started this letter many times and words always fail me as I try and find a way to express my gratitude for each one of you. Please know that the words below pale in comparison to the sentiment and feeling behind them. Boomer, our wee little Scottie Lad, is...

My dog had a potentially serious back injury on a Friday night and this center handled it beautifully! My dog was seen almost immediately and her level of care was of the utmost quality. The staff made the whole process as easy as possible, and the facility was pristine and perfectly clean. We...
Slide58 340x340 - They immediately came out and brought her back. I waited in their nice lounge (this entire facility is world-class animal care) and was given reports consistently.

EMERGENCY ON A SUNDAY... I took my beloved, sweet 14 year old American Pitbull Bella in at 3.pm. as overnight she collapsed on the kitchen floor and could not get up! Her hindquarters/legs would not work as she has had degenerative issues for the last year or so but was doing ok. Anyway, she could...
Slide56 340x340 - "Time and Time Again I Have Received Amazing Care For My Pets"

“Time and Time Again I Have Received Amazing Care For My Pets”

I have quite the history utilizing TLC and will never consider another emergency vet for our dogs. First was my Golden Tiki, she had emergency surgery for ingesting part of her toy then 2 years after that contracted HGE. Both 5 day visits for her and I couldn’t have been happier with her care and...
Slide54 340x340 - "This Facility is Amazing"

“This Facility is Amazing”

This facility is amazing. We've seen the Dental and Oral Surgery Department. Kim at the front desk was extremely helpful and super sweet. Dr. Buelow is awesome. She is very knowledgeable and very talented. They were very accommodating to my pets needs in getting him in quickly. We drove a long way...
