Dr. Cornelia (Conny) Mosley is a boarded anesthesiologist that works as an anesthesiologist and provides care for chronic pain patients in her Integrative Pain Clinic. She graduated from the University of Leipzig in Germany and completed her thesis in Munich. She completed an anesthesia internship in Glasgow, Scotland and a residency in anesthesia and analgesia at the University of Washington and Florida, where she developed her long-time interest in anesthesia and analgesia of non-domestic species.

Conny has held faculty positions at North Carolina State University, Oregon State University and Ontario Veterinary College. She has a strong interest in pain managements (perioperative, postoperative as well as chronic pain) and in particular in the different integrative approaches to pain relief. Conny is certified in acupuncture from the Chi Institute in Florida, and she applies Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) principles to her patients, including Chinese Herbal Medicine. In Conny’s Integrative Pain Management Service, she helps to improve the quality of life of patients experiencing chronic pain.

Dr. Mosley is also the founding director and vice president of the Canadian Association of Veterinary Cannabinoid Medicine ( an organization that helps understand, educate and collaborate in research in cannabinoid medicine and it’s role in veterinary medicine. Through this organization, Conny has played a crucial role in the field of cannabinoid veterinary medicine in Canada.

She has extensively been lecturing nationally and internationally on multiple topics, but with a special passion when it comes to cannabinoid medicine and integrative pain management. She continues to learn more about those fascinating subjects on a daily base.

In her spare time, Conny enjoys her two busy daughters, her even busier husband and all of their pets out in the country. Of all her pets, her Large Münsterländer `Birko’ is her favorite. She enjoys a historic novel when there is time to relax.
