Rex Johnson, DVM
Dr. Rex Johnson is a 1997 graduate of Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He practiced in Texas and Colorado before moving back home to Oklahoma in July 2013. Dr. Johnson has a special interest in surgery, cardiology, dentistry, and exotic animal medicine. He is a proud active member of a variety of prestigious veterinary organizations, including American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), and Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA). He has pursued continuing education in a variety of areas, including advanced dental techniques, emergency and critical care, veterinary orthopedics, and small animal fracture management.
Opening Edmond East Animal Hospital is the fruition of a lifelong dream. He is thrilled to be able to meet interesting people each day while pursuing his personal goal of business ownership. Dr. Johnson loves having the opportunity to help animals and people on a regular basis. He enjoys finding out why each pet is important to their family. It is extremely rewarding for him to know that he is improving the lives of both animals and people, every day!
Dr. Johnson and his wife Shannon (also a veterinarian) have two children, Teagan and Declan. Teagan is eight years old, in 2nd grade and loves going to school. Declan is six years old and in kindergarten; he is an active child that is all boy. They are also the proud parents of Gunner, a Lab-mix dog; Jagger, an orange tabby cat; and Scout, an American Paint horse. Outside of work Dr. Johnson enjoys spending time with his family, riding bikes, golfing, hiking, and watching football. He and Shannon also enjoy going to movies and concerts together, when they get the opportunity.

Shannon Johnson, DVM
Dr. Shannon Johnson met and married her husband, Dr. Rex Johnson, while they attended Oklahoma State University. Together they are co-owners of Edmond East Animal Hospital. She received her doctorate in veterinary medicine in 1998 from OSU. Dr. Shannon enjoys performing soft tissue surgery and helping senior pet owners with their loved ones. She loves when a surgical procedure actually makes a pet feel better than they did prior to surgery.
Dr. Shannon will primarily be working behind the scenes at Edmond East Animal Hospital, although on any given day, she could be found helping with surgeries or seeing appointments if Dr. Johnson is out of the office. Any pets that feel more relaxed with a female veterinarian can also be set up for appointments with her.
When Dr. Shannon isn't at the clinic, you will likely find her volunteering at school or driving kids between the gym, horse riding lessons and other activities. The family's best times together are all gathering for dinner, playing at the park or riding Scout at her Dad's farm. She enjoys movies, concerts, and snowboarding.
