  • Dr. Jennifer Johnson

    Veterinarian

    Dr. Johnson was raised in nearby Waynesboro, PA. She has been practicing veterinary medicine since 2003 when she graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. She attended Veterinary School in the West Indies, on a small island called St. Kitts.
    Dr. Johnson bought Fulton County Veterinary Hospital in May of 2013. She renamed it McConnellsburg Veterinary Clinic, remodeled the facility, upgraded the equipment and services and opened the doors June 1, 2013.
    Her desire is to practice quality veterinary medicine and surgery focusing on client education, pet wellness, and disease prevention. She enjoys canines, felines, ferrets, rabbits, and small mammals as patients. Her special interests include pain management, dentistry, and dermatology. In 2016 Dr. Johnson started to branch out her interests into non-traditional, more holistic therapies for pets including essential oil use and acupuncture. She is now certified in small animal veterinary acupuncture.
    Dr. Johnson resides with 3 cats and 2 dogs.  Her pride and joy Standard Poodle, Stanley Rupert Johnson was the MVC mascot. Sadly, he passed away in December 2017.  She now has a Spanish Galgo rescue, Toyko and a Goldendoodle rescue, Riley!
    Landscaping, practicing yoga, reading, and riding her bicycle are how Dr. Johnson unwinds after a busy day or a long week.
    In the past few years Dr. Johnson has taken an interest in a more holistic approach to her patients and has started integrating different modalities into her treatment plans. In addition to dietary therapy, essential oil use, and cold laser therapy, Dr. Johnson has now incorporated Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs for pets.

    Initially, acupuncture became an area of interest when Dr. Johnson herself was given relief from chronic rib/diaphragm pain through acupuncture treatments. It was her 12.5 year old Standard Poodle, Stanley, who developed multiple issues with his immune system and cancer that really drove her to seek out alternative modalities to promote health, the immune system, healing, and pain management. This is where the concept of not only acupuncture came in, but more specifically TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine).

    Dr. Johnson chose to study with world renounced Veterinary Acupuncturist and founder of the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Huisheng Xie, located in Gainesville, FL.  She completed her training and Certification in Small Animal Acupuncture in January 2018, completing 130 hours of continuing education and recently completed an Advanced Veterinary Acupuncture course as well.
