Here at Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center, we are excited to welcome our newest surgeon, Dr. John Davies! In 2001, he graduated from McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Three years later, he attended Ontario Veterinary College and graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. After a series of internships and medical residencies, Davies became a board certified veterinary surgeon in 2015.
For two years, Davies was the lead staff surgeon at Silicon Valley Veterinary Specialists in San Jose, where he was responsible for setting up the surgical service in a startup practice environment. From there, he was employed as a staff surgeon at Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital. He has also had his work published and is a member of several notable veterinary associations.
In his free time, you’ll find Davies enjoying the outdoors. He loves to go camping, rock climbing, sailing, kite surfing, and many other things! He’s been surrounded by animals his entire life. He was raised on his family farm near Toronto, Canada, where his parents had a large sheep operation that supplied timed pregnant ewes and lambs to research hospitals. We are happy to have him here at SOVSC!
