A Good Story to Tell

Dr. Meredith Johns ('10)

Most of the clients walking through the doors at the Midland Prairie Veterinary Services are bringing their dog or cat to be seen. It’s a familiar tale for Meredith Johns, one of the owners of the veterinary clinic which has offices in Colfax and Maxwell, Iowa. It was the same story at the mixed animal practices she worked at in Moberly, Mo., and in her hometown of Ottumwa, Iowa. While she enjoys working with companion animals, Johns has a special interest in large animals. “One of the reasons why I came to Midland Prairie was because I wanted to get back in a mixed animal practice,” Johns said. “I’ve always liked working with people in the agriculture industry.  It’s the variety of a mixed animal practice that excites Johns professionally. “It’s like it’s an adventure every day, it’s always something different,” she said. “Years later I am still learning and something almost always surprises me. I just like to have a good story to tell at the end of the day.”
