Available for relief service when you need time off – vacation, continuing education, illness, surgery, pregnancy leave, family emergency/crisis. I will work days, weeks, and even months.

Available for any location in Illinois.

My goal is to provide you with the very best, stress-free, relief service experience you have ever had and to take care of your practice and your bottom line. I will not demand special drugs, or have “I do not do”. I care.

I pledge that I will take care of your practice in a manner that will give you confidence so that you may get away from your practice for whatever is your reason and for you to be carefree.

I pledge to work with your staff and to take their recommendations in order to follow your ways of practice and doing things.

I pledge to work for you with the same enthusiasm as I did in my own practice.

I pledge to exceed your client’s expectations, and to exceed the production of others by providing yours clients with the same approach and charisma that your clients expect and deserve as if you were there.

I pledge to constantly be aware that while I am caring for your clients and patients, that I am also caring for the investment that you have made into your practice.

I pledge that if you will provide the clients, that I will be able to pay for my services from the monies that I generate.

I strive to work within established hospital protocols to maximize efficiency and meet/exceed client expectations. Your staff knows your clients best; their input and advice is always welcomed and encouraged. Despite the regular doctor’s absence, my goal is to provide care that is consistent as if you were there. I will work closely to learn your policies and practices in order to treat clients and patients in a way that is familiar to them and your staff. I work well with all personalities and can adapt to various protocols. I’m comfortable working on my own or with owner and associates. As an owner and manager of several hospitals, I understand the economics a veterinary practice.

I am available on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. I can help your clinic by providing services on most species.

As an independent contractor I have:

  • Illinois veterinary and controlled substance licenses
  • Accreditation
  • DEA license
  • Professional liability insurance
  • Federal Identification Number
  • Personal health insurance
  • Take care of all State and Federal taxes


Please call or email me to discuss availability, rates, or answer questions. I will be happy to arrange an appointment to stop by your practice, meet you, your team, and discuss practice philosophies. Thank you for your consideration. Dr. Johnson
