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 hospital, 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.

They treat you and your loved ones like family! They have been so generous and kind to our babies(we are forever grateful). We will never have the need to look for another Vet. This practice, this family rocks!!
The best vet in Edmond! Seriously the cleanest and cutest office! Dr Johnson and his staff were so incredibly helpful, and fit Sadie in and she is on the mend!
Dr. Johnson and his staff didn't give up when it came to figuring out what was wrong with our Duke. They are so caring and so very understanding when it comes to your concerns and it does not feel that it is all about the money but rather about the well being of your pet. They have definitely earned my business!
You could not get better Veterinarians! Known these 2 for years and we are blessed to have them back in Oklahoma! Welcome Home!
Thanks for taking such good care of Fancy's leg. She's such a sweet dog we love her to pieces, and she will live out her life as a princess!!!
I love everything about Edmond East! They have amazing doctors, outstanding staff and a fabulous facility!
I simply love each and every person there!!! Never had a vet that loved my pets as much as me and were so friendly and caring!!! Thank you for making our move better!
This place is the best from the veterinarians to the staff. We are so happy we found this place. My 9 dogs, 3 cats and bird are happy patients and say thank you.
I highly recommend this animal hospital. I felt very comfortable and they did such a wonderful job checking the lump on my Guinea Pig. They were very careful and sweet when handling him. Really awesome place! Will be returning there for sure!
We absolutely love Dr. Johnson and his staff. They take great care of our Watson and make us feel like family as soon as we walk through the door.
Always reasonably priced, caring, and excellent customer service!!
Hands down the best place ever..Our Babies love them too!!
Edmond East does a wonderful job with Bon. Like every dog, Bon hates going to the vet but he is relaxed and calm when going here. Plus he gets top-notch vet care. I highly recommend Edmond East.
Dr. Rex and the whole Staff are great. Very helpful and caring group.
