In 2016, Dr. Thunberg decided that he could
help more veterinary practices and their patients by bringing
his services directly to them. This was when Mobile Animal
Surgical Care (M.A.S.C.) was formed. By bringing surgical
services to the practice, the patient is able to benefit from
the surgical procedure it needs, in the comfort of a familiar
setting and familiar people.
Dr. Thunberg performs a wide range of both
orthopedic and soft tissue surgical procedures. Some of thease
procedures include: Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) for
stabilizing the ACL deficient stifle, fracture repair, patella
luxation correction, splenectomy, gastrointestinal and urinary

neurologic surgeries such as hemilaminectomy, dorsal laminectomy,
and ventral slot procedures.
When Dr. Thunberg is not performing
surgery, he enjoys spending time with his family and hiking in
the many state parks that Indiana has to offer.

Colwell fulfilled one of her dreams,
and attained an All American Quarter Horse Congress
Championship, as well as a reserve all-around Champion title.
Dr. Colwell felt the need for speed however, and returned to
the 2003 All American Quarter Horse Congress, this time with a
barrel horse in tow, earning yet again, another Congress
Champion title, only this time going fast! From that
point on, she was hooked and continued to follow the NBHA

Indianapolis area, as well as meeting everyone both through our
clinic, at the shows, and the backside of the track!
