Dr. Mair has teamed up with the doctors of Long Lake Animal Hospital to offer advanced surgical services to our patients locally. We can provide these surgical services on an outpatient basis. Dr. Mair will also accept surgical referrals from veterinarians wishing to provide this service to their patients.
Dr. Jacqueline Mair, DVM, DACVS-sa, MBA:
Dr. Mair attended veterinary school at Michigan State University after working for 7 years in the financial industry. Upon completion of her degree, she completed a one year rotating small animal internship at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. Once completed she was accepted into a small animal surgical residency at Tufts University. After 3 years of specialized training in all areas of small animal surgery, Dr. Mair completed board requirements and examination to become a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
Dr. Mair has 17 years of post-residency surgical experience. As a board-certified surgeon she has handled and continues to handle complex cases. Even what would normally be considered a routine case can have nuances that she is able to navigate given her training and experience.
Dr. Mair focuses on soft tissue, orthopedic and neurological surgery. While she has the ability to handle all areas of the surgical spectrum, not all cases can be managed on an outpatient basis. Dr. Mair works with each practice to determine the kinds of cases that can be managed locally.
What is a Veterinary Surgeon?
There are many specialties in veterinary medicine recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association’s American Board of Veterinary Specialties (ABVS). The American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS) is the governing body for the specialty of surgery. A board-certified veterinary surgeon has undergone several years of additional training beyond the 4 years of veterinary school. The ACVS requires surgeons to have a minimum of 1 year of rotating internship which provides training in all areas of medicine. Once completed an intern may begin 3 years of surgical residency at a facility approved by the ACVS. All surgery residents must meet a series of requirements upon completion. After successful completion of the examination the designation of diplomate of the ACVS is granted.
