Dr. Bos’ and Dr. Nutt’s mission is to support family veterinarians in Southwestern Ontario by providing board-level surgical advice and advanced surgical procedures in the convenience and familiarity of the patient’s primary care veterinary hospital.

Available surgeries include TPLO, extracapsular stabilization, femoral head and neck ostectomy, patellar stabilization, prophylactic gastropexy, perineal urethrostomy, cystotomy, mass excision, anal sacculectomy, and others.

Tanya Vickers

Tanya accompanies Dr. Nutt and Dr.Bos to monitor the patient intra-operatively under anesthesia.

After graduating in 1995 and obtaining her RVT the same year, she worked in regular practice until 2006, when she joined the surgery team at Mississauga Oakville. There she received advanced anesthesia training under board certified anesthesiologists.

Under their supervision she learned to perform epidurals and intraarticular blocks.

Since 2006, she has worked exclusively with board certified specialists, with a career focus of surgery and anaesthesia.

When not in the OR, Tanya enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband and children, watching movie versions of popular books, and breeding Nigerian dwarf goats.
