Dr. Johnson, Principal Doctor
Dr. Tanner S. Johnson was born in South Carolina, but grew up in the sunshine state of Florida. His first job was as a kennel assistant in high school, and he fell in love with the veterinary field. Dr. Johnson attended the University of Florida for both his undergraduate and doctoral studies, graduating in May of 2016. Following the call of adventure, he moved to Colorado shortly after and has never looked back.
Dr. Johnson started at WellHaven Park Ave. in 2018 and became Principal in the fall of 2019. It is his goal to ensure this hospital continues to provide the best care at the most reasonable pricing possible. He wants for each and every pet to receive the same treatment as if they were his own, and strives to provide as much information for pet owners as possible.
During his studies, Dr. Johnson received an honorary certificate in veterinary dentistry and is a very strong advocate for dental health in alll pets. His other professional interests include soft tissue surgery, dermatology, and behavior. When not in the hospital he enjoys reading, board games, and snuggling his pups. Dr. Johnson lives in Aurora with his partner and two dogs: Terra, an older chocolate lab, and Dante, a knucklehead pittie mix.

Alanna, Veterinary Assistant
I grew up in Ohio then moved to CO in 2019 to enjoy the outdoors more. My hobbies outside of work include hiking, reading, swimming, playing video games or spending time with my friends.
I have a dog named Timber who’s my little adventure buddy. My passion for animals came for me at an early age from dogs, cats, and exotics – I love them all and owned quite a bit.
