Dr. Mair's veterinary education was obtained at Michigan State University in 1999. She successfully completed an internal medicine internship and surgery residency at the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts. Upon completion of her residency in July 2003, she accepted a full time surgery position at VCA Northwood Hospital in Indiana. She became a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2005. August 2008 She had moved back to Michigan and began her Mobile Surgery Service, as well as working at Veterinary Care Specialists in Milford, MI.

WHAT IS A DIPLOMATE OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF VETERINARY SURGEONS?
A Diplomate refers to a veterinarian who has been board certified in veterinary surgery. Only veterinarians who have successfully completed the certification requirements of the ACVS are Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and have earned the right to be called specialists in veterinary surgery.
Veterinarians wishing to become board certified must complete a three-year residency program, meet specific training and caseload requirements, perform research and have their research published. This process is supervised by current ACVS Diplomates, ensuring consistency in training and adherence to high standards. Once the residency is completed, the resident must sit for and pass a rigorous examination. Only then does the veterinarian earn the title of ACVS Diplomate.
WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT ME?
Veterinary medicine is a second career for me. I truly feel blessed to have found a profession that I love. My goal is to develop a strong relationship with veterinarians referring cases as well as veterinarians that have me perform surgeries in their clinics. My promise is to always do my best for you and your pet. In the end, the most important goal is a successful surgical outcome. I’ll be there to help you achieve this end.
