Jeffrey House's Summary
Dr. House graduated from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1976. He spent 1 1/2 years post graduation as a faculty member at the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1978 he began practicing in the northwest suburban Chicago area.
Dr. House founded the Hoffman Estates Animal Hospital in 1985 and by 1989, the first time it was eligible, the hospital became an accredited member of the prestigious American Animal Hospital Association of which only 15% of all animals hospitals are members.
In 1989, Dr. House became board certified and a diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). Veterinary medicine in the United States is divided between general practitioners and those that have become "board certified". The board certified veterinarians are the only ones that are allowed to use the word "specialist" in their advertising. The advanced training, continuing education commitments and a difficult examination process has limited the number of clinical veterinarians with board certification to just 2% of the total number of practicing DVM's.
In 1997, Dr. House became board certified for a second time within the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. His board certification this time was in the Feline Species. There are only 53 board certified "Feline Specialists" in the United States and Dr. House is one of only 3 veterinarians in the country to be dual certified, twice, by the ABVP. He has served as a mentor for other veterinarians that are striving to achieve board certification status.
In 2010 Dr. House founded Mobile Veterinary Ultrasound Inc, a diagnostic imaging company that provides soft tissue and cardiac ultrasounds for other veterinarians in the Chicago area.
Oncology,cardiology,internal medicine, diagnostic imaging and feline care.
