Dr. Joseph Landers


Like many children I always loved animals.  As I progressed in school I also loved science and biology.  Then Grandma Lou got me a kennel job at Dr. McGuire’s clinic and I was “hooked” for life!  My goal for clients and patients is education.  So the best well informed decision can be made for the welfare, compassion, and dignity of the pet.  I am so blessed to have a great family; my wife Dr. Julie who I met and married in veterinary school, my son, JD,  and daughter in law, Amanda in Seattle completing a PhD, my daughter, Jamie, in Stillwater in veterinary school,  and Jordan at Union doing drama and percussion.  We have several pets (7 heart beats) of various species at home.  Gunner is our oldest and Cole who often runs with me is the youngest.  My philosophy in life is to do unto others as you would have them do, and pay it forward.
