Dr. Brian Thunberg graduated from Purdue University in 2005.  He then went on to complete a one year rotating specialty internship and 3-year surgical residency at Animal Surgical and Emergency Center in Los Angeles.  Following completion of his residency, he was taken on as a staff surgeon at VCA Advanced Veterinary Care Center in Fisher’s, Indiana.  In 2012, Dr. Thunberg became part owner of Bloomington Veterinary Hospital and brought specialty orthopedic and soft tissue surgical services to Bloomington.

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 procedures, and mass removal.  Dr. Thunberg can also perform 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.


Dr. Casey Colwell has been a horse enthusiast way before she could walk, in fact her first pony was purchased by her parents before she was born.  Dr. Colwell started at a young age riding hunter ponies in central Tennessee, then transitioning into the AQHA show world at the age of 10.  In 2002, Dr. 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 circuits.  Dr. Colwell currently has high hopes for her young tb track prospect that is currently in training for the Ruidoso Races.

Outside of being a good horseman, and tuff competitor, Casey has proven to be a good veterinarian as well, completing the Peterson & Smith Skills Practicum, participating in the Texas A&M equine wet labs, as well as completing an elective reproductive course at the University of Tennessee's Cherokee Farm. Casey's area of expertise are lameness diagnostics and treatment, reproduction, and sport horse rehabilitation.

Dr. Colwell is looking forward to practicing medicine in the Indianapolis area, as well as meeting everyone both through our clinic, at the shows, and the backside of the track!
