JVS: My Clinic

Welcome to the Introductory Page of Johnson Veterinary Services

By way of the fastest orientation to my clinic, let me say that what you will find here is a knowledgeable, dedicated staff of techs / nurses. The best in Marietta, bar none. Some have been here for 20+ years, and most of my nurses stay until they start families, and babies ruin it up. (ha ha ha)

The other thing we offer is logical / practical approaches to cases. For example, if your pet has an inoperable brain tumor, why spend another two thousand dollars finding out the tumor’s latin name? If your pet is 17 years old, are we worried about putting it on a medication that has long-range side effects as long as it creates comfort? Do you want your epileptic dog on Keppra (which barely works at all) only  to spend a few thousand dollars to figure out why it’s not working when Phenobarbital would work perfectly as it has for fifty years? We’re not talking shoddy medicine. We’re talking about experience, and not wasting a poor dog’s time-suffering, or an owner’s finances.  Veterinary medicine is fraught with fads and “the latest and greatest” and sadly, the simpler, older approaches often have the most predictably successful results.

Practicality:    Stopping the costly diagnostic algorithm as soon as you know there are no more TREATABLE conditions to find.

Practicality: Approaching a work-up beginning with the most common disorder and working your way down instead of dumping the whole lab and pharmacy on every remote possibility.

Practicality: Giving you ALL your options from “top-shelf-spare-no-expense” across the board to “this is what happens if you do nothing” —> And then I’ll share with you exactly what I would do if your pet is actually my own “Ajax”.

Thank you for considering my clinic for your pet’s needs. I will try not to let you down.
