Dr. R. Mark Daye

Dr. Daye grew up in Western Canada near Calgary, Alberta. His pre-veterinary education was completed at the University of Alberta. Dr. Daye received his veterinary degree from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. Following graduation, he completed a year-long rotation as a small-animal medical and surgical intern at the Animal Medical Center in New York City.

Dr. Daye is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. In July 2003, he relocated from North Carolina and joined the Surgery Department at Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital

While trained in all areas of small-animal surgery, Dr. Daye focuses his day-to-day attention on orthopedic conditions – treating general surgical conditions and neurosurgical conditions only on an as-needed or emergency basis. This focus allows Dr. Daye to offer a comprehensive list of advanced orthopedic procedures, including simple and complex fracture repairs of the entire skeletal system, arthroscopic treatments for many joints, multiple advanced treatments for ruptured cranial cruciate ligaments, multiple elbow dysplasia surgeries, as well as pubic symphysiodesis, triple pelvic osteotomy and total hip replacement for treatment of canine hip dysplasia. 

Dr. Daye has received extensive training in many cutting edge orthopedic surgical procedures and fosters aggressive pain management for his orthopedic patients. He is a longtime and currently active member of the Veterinary Orthopedic Society and the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management. He is a reviewer of scientific studies in orthopedics for the prestigious veterinary medical journal Veterinary Surgery.
