About Dahl Mobile Veterinary Services

In the beginning

After graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph in 1993, I moved to Barrie and worked in a small animal practice for 10 years. Eventually I moved to the London area and have been offering locum services to the small animal clinics here. By working in different hospitals, I gained experience not only in medicine and surgery, but also in client communication and service, and saw different approaches to problems. I strive to offer great medical care and superior communication service, by not only addressing the needs of your pets, but in helping you to be able to give your pets a good and healthy life.

A new practice

I opened Dahl Mobile Veterinary Services to allow me to achieve my own professional goals and offer you health care for your beloved pets that is both convenient for you and comfortable for your pets.

It is a mutual goal, I believe, that you should understand what we are doing to your pets and why. For this reason, I spend time in welcoming and answering your questions. I believe that a veterinarian and a pet owner need to work together to deliver the best health care to our pets. After all, dogs and cats are family members!

Mobile is accessable

An important section of clientele I want to help out is our senior citizens. These pet owners may no longer be as mobile themselves, yet they are an important segment of our population that needs to be served.

In your home, I am able to give your dog or cat a physical exam, including weighing them, collecting a blood or urine or fecal sample if necessary (these samples are sent to a laboratory for testing), trimming their nails, treating minor aliments such as ear infections (sometimes sedation is necessary and I am able to do this)  and helping address behavioral problems (such as house training, socialization, etc). I also offer guidance and counseling for end of life care decisions. I offer in home euthanasia and aftercare through Pets Above, a crematory service for pets.

What it’s all about

I am passionate about offering your pets good quality medicine, so they may have the best quality of life possible. I will work with you to achieve this.
