Dr Ben Lewens


Ben graduated from Massey University in 2022 and immediately went into a rotating internship at the Animal Referral Center. There Ben worked under specialists from various disciplines and gained experience in surgery, medicine, neurology, cardiology, oncology, critical care and diagnostic imaging, as well as experience as an emergency veterinarian.

Ben joined the team at Abbotts Way in March 2024 with a keen interest in surgery and imaging and is looking forward to continuing to develop these skills in the future.

In his spare time, Ben finds solace in the great outdoors, often exploring hiking trails or ending up at the beach. Though he doesn’t have any of his own pets (yet), Ben enjoys visiting his parents who have two eccentric dogs, an elderly cat, sheep, cattle and a couple of pigs for his out-of-work animal fix.
