Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic’s focus is on keeping pets healthy through preventative care and treating them with the latest technology when they do get sick. But healthy pets are not just about disease and accident prevention or curing an illness or injury. It’s also about socialization, nutrition, behavior, and training.
At Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic, Dr. Schmidt, Dr. Bowers, and the staff will always take the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions and explain all the treatment options available. And you are welcome to remain with your pet during any procedure.
Previously owner and medical director of Apache Junction Animal Hospital, Dr. Marc Schmidt has been “the vet to East Valley pets” for over 30 years. He received both his Bachelor of Science degree and his DVM degree from the Ohio State University in 1978, then interned at Cornell University. He even “toured” the country with Borden’s famous Elsie the Cow.
Originally working as a large animal veterinarian, Dr. Schmidt joined a veterinary practice in California in 1979 before coming to Arizona in 1980. While currently his practice is limited to dogs and cats, Dr. Schmidt has always had an interest in reptiles especially snakes.
Pets: Truffles, a rescue dog, poodle mix. Chuckles, the Quaker Parrot.
Dr. Kelly Bowers was born and raised in Arizona and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology at Northern Arizona University and her DVM degree from Washington State in 2007.

She has an interest in canine and feline internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and ultrasound technology.

He came to us approximately 2.5 years ago as a stray. He was adopted out but loved us so much he came back for good! He is a silly character, very friendly and talkative and will beg for food 24 hours a day!
