Introducing Dr. Marc Schmidt
Owner of Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic

owner and medical director of Apache Junction Animal Hospital, Dr. Schmidt has been the vet to East Valley pets for over 25 years.

He received both his Bachelor of Science Degree and his DVM degree from The Ohio State University, graduating in1978. He then interned at Cornell University.
Dr. Schmidt joined a veterinary practice in California in 1979 before coming to Arizona in 1980.
I've personally known and worked for Dr. Marc Schmidt for 7 years. In 2005 I assisted him in opening Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic. I worked full time for him for 3 years and am currently working there two days a week.
Dr. Schmidt supports the Az Pet Professionals and just recently was our Guest Speaker at our monthly meeting where the members were able to ask him questions in regards to vaccines, viruses, common pet problems and much more. He shared his expertise openly for us so that we can continue to promote responsible pet ownership to all pet owner's that we work for and meet along our way.
In my career I've learned that there are good veterinarians and then there are GREAT veterinarians! Dr. Schmidt is definately a great Veterinarian! Dr. Schmidt takes the time to educate his clients and listen to their questions and concerns whole heartedly. He gives each client a treatment plan for all that he could do for their pet/s care and then respects what the client chooses to have performed.

I am proud to know Dr. Schmidt and highly recommend him to anyone seeking a Veterinarian that practices good medicine as well as geniunely caring for your pets.

Dr. Schmidt's practice is located in San Tan Valley, on the corner of Hunt Hwy and Bella Vista.

Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
