Dr. Mark House is a board-certified surgeon available to PenBay Veterinary Associates clients for complex surgeries such as orthopedic and soft tissue. He earned his DVM degree at the Ontario Veterinary College in 2004. As he endeavored to become a veterinary surgeon at a young age, he sought further training to one day become a specialist.
From 2004-2005, Dr. House attended the Ohio State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital to complete a one-year general internship program. Then he moved to Long Island, NY where he completed a one-year surgery internship program at Long Island Veterinary Specialists (LIVS). LIVS is a very busy private hospital which offers further training including a residency program. Dr. House remained at LIVS for three more years where he focused solely on small animal surgery to gain valuable skills including knowledge of various soft tissue, orthopedic and neurologic procedures.
Upon completion of the residency program, Dr. House prepared for his board examinations, and in 2010 he became a board-certified small animal surgeon under the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. When not performing surgery, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children in the great Maine outdoors.
