    Dr. Craig Mosley graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph where he also completed a residency and Master’s of Science program in veterinary anesthesia.  Dr. Mosley has been actively involved in many facets of veterinary medicine since graduation including; mixed animal practice, emergency medicine, critical care, teaching, management and of course, anesthesia in both private and academic practices throughout North America.  Dr. Mosley’s varied experiences have provided him with the foundation for his practical and “real-world” approach to anesthesia and pain management.

    Dr. Mosley is currently a staff anesthesiologist at the VCA Canada, 404 Veterinary Emergency and Referral Hospital in Newmarket ON and an independent consultant in veterinary anesthesia providing both direct and indirect clinical support and continuing education.  

    Dr. Mosley has written several book chapters, peer reviewed articles and has lectured extensively at local, national and international conferences on a variety of topics and issues related to veterinary anesthesia.  His interests in veterinary anesthesia are diverse, encompassing everything from wildlife and zoo animal anesthesia through to the equipment used to maintain and monitor anesthesia.  His wider interests in veterinary medicine include innovation in veterinary medicine, access to care, sustainability, the science of clinical decision-making, medical errors and leveraging expertise to better support the wider veterinary community.

    In his spare time, Dr. Mosley spends time caring for his permaculture influenced hobby farm and enjoying the outdoors with his veterinary anesthesiologist wife and two young daughters.  He is passionate about all things with two wheels and spends far too much of his time riding his bikes (both motorized and people powered) exploring the off-beat trails and paths throughout Ontario and beyond.
