Our Veterinarians

dr fleming dvm

Pat Fleming, DVM

Dr. Fleming started working at Levan Road Veterinary Hospital in 1989 and has been a co-owner since 2001. While in the eighth grade, she wrote about becoming an equine veterinarian in order to combine two interests, a love of horses and science. Since then, she went on to earn her Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees at Michigan State University in East Lansing. Despite still having a love of horses, Dr. Fleming became a small animal veterinarian and loves being able to help animals and people, and help enhance the human-animal bond. Always up-to-date with the development of veterinary medicine on a local, national and international scale, Dr. Fleming regularly participates in continuing education opportunities and is an active member of the MVMA, AVMA, and AAHA.

She is especially proud that Levan Road Veterinary Hospital earned AAHA accreditation in 2009; an accreditation program for veterinary practices nationwide that is entirely voluntary. The entire team worked hard for the practice to be evaluated on about 900 rigorous standards with the goal of providing the best patient care possible; only about 15% of veterinary practices nationwide are AAHA accredited. Once accredited, a practice must undergo on-site evaluations every three years to maintain accreditation.

A Detroit native and graduate of Cass Technical High School, Dr. Fleming lives in Livonia with her husband, Greg, their son, Joseph, and their two cats.  When Dr. Fleming is not working, she likes spending time with her family, scrapbooking, and riding her bike.  She also enjoys visiting Mackinac Island with her family.
