About Our Mobile Board-Certified Surgery

A board-certified surgeon is a veterinarian who has additionally completed a one-year internship and 3-year surgical residency, followed by an examination to become a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, the highest worldwide recognized training level in veterinary surgery.

Our mission at Grey Goose Mobile Veterinary Surgery is to support family veterinarians in Southwestern Ontario by providing board-level surgical advice and advanced surgical procedures by Dr Halling and our experienced RVT, Tanya, in the convenience and familiarity of the patient’s primary care veterinary hospital.

We partner with the family veterinarian to offer guidance on patient management before and after surgery, including comprehensive post-operative instructions for the pet owner. Dr Halling will also speak with the owner pre-operatively and/or immediately post-operatively, if desired.

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