Dr. Johnson considers Routine and Advanced Equine Dentistry to be his main focus in the veterinary field of medicine. This practice covers all of Southern California and other parts of California and Nevada. Dr. Johnson’s lifetime experience of horsemanship and 10 plus years doing extensive, advanced dentistry helps ensure a favorable outcome for his patients.
Dr. Jacob Johnson attended California Polytechnic State University, Pomona where he received his Bachelor degree in Microbiology in 2003 and the University of Illinois where he received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2007. During his graduate studies, he enjoyed advancing his dental studies beyond what is learned in school by attending and putting on dental courses, along with extensive relief work across the country and 3rd world countries. Free time was spent learning from many veterinarians throughout Texas, Nevada, California, Wisconsin, Illinois and Kentucky. Dr. Johnson is an Apple Valley native whom may be a familiar face to many, through his involvement with the San Bernardino County Sheriffs, and previous owner of Johnson’s Firewood or his many years working before and after becoming a veterinarian at an equine practice in the high desert.
Dr. Johnson enjoys riding and spending time or traveling with his family, Christel and daughters Ryan, Mia, Kenzie and Karlie.
Dr. Johnson believes in continued education and makes it a top priority to stay up on the latest developments in research, medicine, techniques, technology and pharmaceuticals. Even though the majority of his practice is a mobile veterinary service, we do have a facility in Apple Valley, California set up to assist the patients that travel from out of the area for routine care and a clinic in Murrieta where most surgeries are performed. Dr. Johnson takes pride in offering and referring patients to the most progressive veterinary care.
