Greg Haines, DVM
I grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada and became attached to horses through standardbred racing at a young age. Wanting to pursue a career in the standardbred industry, I obtained my veterinary degree from the Ontario Veterinary College. Upon graduation, I joined the Ottawa Valley Large Animal Clinic in Kemptville, Ontario. While there, I performed all forms of general equine practice including standardbred race track work.
After five years in the Ottawa Valley, I began a surgical internship at the Illinois Equine Hospital and Clinic in Naperville. The following year I worked at the Illinois Equine Field Service in Elburn in ambulatory practice. It was during his time in Illinois that I met and became friends with Dr. Kuesis.
I ventured to Gainesville, Florida to complete a large animal surgery residency and became board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. I remained in Gainesville for an additional four years as a clinical instructor in large animal surgery.
In 2004, I was hired by the Dubai Equine Hospital in Dubai. While there, I worked in a referral practice setting performing elective and emergency surgery as well as lameness and scintigraphy interpretation.
I returned to the U.S. in the summer of 2014 to join the Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital in Snohomish, Washington as an associate veterinarian/surgeon. My duties included a heavy emphasis on emergencies. In addition, I continued to perform elective and emergency surgery. During the pandemic, I started to assume more ambulatorily responsibilities.
I am excited about joining Mission Equine and working with Dr. Kuesis and his clients. I look forward to many more sunny days.
