Do you dread dentistry? Surgical caseload got you turning green?
Help is available, but only for a limited time!

I am a small animal veterinarian with 30 years of experience, and am currently offering my services as a relief surgeon & dentist in the Niagara region. For the past four years, my objective has been to help deliver skilled veterinary surgery & dentistry to your practice, allowing your clients to stay with the veterinary team they trust, and keeping care for their pets “at home”. However, in the near future I will be shifting my focus to working at a newly constructed hospital in the heart of Niagara, and thus will no longer be available for locum services.
If you need help, but have been putting off hiring a locum surgeon, now is the time! I have extensive experience in elective surgery, soft tissue procedures of all sorts, orthopedics, and dentistry. I travel with my own dental equipment, so all you need on site is a dental cart & dental X-ray capabilities. I am looking to help practitioners who need to free up time in their schedule to focus on medical & preventive care or to focus on mentoring their associates, who would like to take a break from surgery & dentistry, who need help covering while they have DVMs in the practice away on vacation, or who need short term assistance while they look for the right associate DVM to join their team. Call, text, or email Dr. Jay Thrush any time at 204.761.0528 or
I would like to extend heartfelt thanks to all of the doctors and clinic teams with whom I have worked over the last few years. Thank you for trusting me to help provide the care your patients (and clients) need. Your trust in me means the world, and I am eternally grateful.
