    Dr. Johnson and everyone at the hospital did everything possible to attend to my dog's emergent care. I have never met anybody who cares more about animals. Awesome vet clinic!!!

    Love this vet, however, I did call after hours last week and never received a call back...kinda disappointed. My husband called after hours number and gave both his cell number and mine (around 7pm). Left a message and got no call back. Not even a follow up call the next day. In the meantime, we had to take my sweet boy to the emergency vet where they cleaned him and bandaged him up.

    Brought my litter of 6 puppies in for their first well visit and shots. Dr. Johnson and his staff were amazing. I would recommend them for your fur-babies

    I always have the best experiences when I bring my dog here. They seem truly care about my dog and take great care of her.

    I have never had a more lovely and caring vet in my entire life. When my little kitty Melanie became very sick with a terminal illness Dr. Johnson and his staff were so thorough and caring in how to help us keep her happy and comfortable in her last few weeks. The thought of losing our kitty was so painful that Dr. Johnson made a very caring and loving house call to us the day we knew she was so ill she couldn't go on anymore. He and his staff made all the arrangements including having the pet cremation service arrive at our home the same time when he arrived to help her through the transition. We were able to help our little kitty girl pass on in the comfort of her own home and with dignity as all animals should have. Dr. Johnson is the only vet I will allow my precious kitties to be seen by, he and his staff are a god send.

    NEW to town, and brought my sick little Allie kitty to Dr. Johnson as a second opinion. After not being happy with the first vet I brought her to, I contacted Birdneck Animal Hospital. I called and told the receptionist why I was calling, and I was upset from my previous experience at a SUB PAR vet... A.K.A, Dr. Smith at Independence Animal Hospital. She listened to my concerns, and seemed very compassionate. I was able to bring Allie in the very next day. I took her on a Sat. The office WAS busy, and we weren't seen on time... we were about 30mins late being seen. After we got into the exam room and Dr. Johnson came in ...that didn't matter. I could tell by his demeanor and the way he listened to me and examined Allie ..that I could trust him. I also read through the New Patient packet that was given to me, and he lists his PERSONAL phone number and makes himself available to his clients until 10pm every night. WHO DOES THAT ANYMORE?!?!?!? ....Hallelujah!!! He confirmed my fears, that Allie had an infection, BUT I also felt validated. People know their pets, and know when they aren't feeling well.... I actually cried a little in the exam room... #1 because I was happy that he was going to treat Allie and she would get better finally.. and #2 I was PISSED that the vet previously ignored my feelings and kept telling me she was fine, and it was "Just allergies". Allie did start to act like her usual self, more every day. I went back a week later for a follow up visit...and Allie, now for the most part is back to her sweet playful little self. THANK YOU TO DR. JOHNSON AND TO THE ENTIRE STAFF AT BIRDNECK ANIMAL HOSPITAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for being kind and helpful, caring and overall fantastic. 2 thumbs up from this cat lady!!!!!!! :)

    I've taken my pets here for years now! Dr Johnson and his wife Kim are awesome. Dr. Johnson is super thorough and really takes the time to make sure you understand the treatment process and procedures. The office is warm and inviting and always clean. And I especially love how they welcome new patients with a welcome sign and take a photo of the pet for their Facebook page! Adorable! They just go the extra mile. Oh! And the staff is awesome as well and very patient! Forget the "Doc in a box". Get personalized care instead.

    I worked for Dr. Johnson at Birdneck Animal Hospital for 3 years. I worked all aspects of the job, including reception, veterinary assistant, as well as managing the clinic. I highly recommend Birdneck Animal Hospital to anyone looking for the utmost care of their pet. Dr. Johnson gives the most thorough, comprehensive exams on patients that I have ever seen. I've been to other clinics, having had pets my whole life, and no exam has come close. Dr. Johnson gives dedicated one on one time with each patient and their owner, and is always courteous and compassionate. Dr. Johnson has a small group of employees, which are exceptional. The clinic has a family atmosphere because of this, and you will be remembered and greeted with a smile each and every time you visit. Dr. Johnson runs a full service hospital. He will see your well pets for routine exams and vaccinations, as well as seeing your pets if they are not feeling their best. Surgeries, blood-work diagnostics, laser therapy, x-rays, ultrasounds...the clinic has everything you will need. If you are looking for a new veterinarian, schedule an appointment with Dr. Johnson. You will not be disappointed.
