Chris Johnson is an emergency veterinarian in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Oklahoma Veterinary Specialists. He attended undergraduate school at the University of Oklahoma and obtained a degree in Zoology. He graduated from Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. Following veterinary school he completed a rotating internship in San Francisco at the San Francisco Veterinary Specialists.
He has always had a passion for emergency medicine as it is an always exciting endeavor. He enjoys the challenge of going to work every day not knowing what to expect. He is especially fond of trauma cases, endocrine emergencies, and soft tissue surgery.
His practice is mostly limited to dogs and cats, but he will see the occasional pocket pet (hamsters, gerbils), as well as birds, reptiles, amphibians and wildlife (raccoons, wild birds, squirrels, and even skunks). He recently performed a surgery on a skunk to remove a tumor from its small intestine!
Chris is the current president of the Tulsa County Veterinary Medical Association and a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
He lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with his wife Chauntay and his three-year-old daughter Georgia. He has two Boston Terriers (Oscar and Frankie), a Golden Retriever (Sierra) and a cat (Guster).
When he is not practicing veterinary medicine you can find him on the golf course, playing the guitar or the piano, or doing anything that takes him outdoors.
