Dr. John Andrews, DVM
Dr. John Andrews earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 2005 from one of the top Veterinary Medical Programs in the country – the esteemed Colorado State University. After graduating, he was accepted into a highly competitive medical internship at VCA West Los Angeles which he completed in 2006. Dr. Andrews then returned to Colorado where he has been practicing high quality veterinary medicine ever since. His dream has always been to design his own, personal hospital with modern and cutting edge architecture, highly efficient veterinary medical techniques, the most cutting edge equipment possible, and a truly “green” approach. Dr. Andrews strives to take veterinary medical centers into the future while still practicing the highest quality of medicine within the community. Mead Veterinary Medical Center IS that hospital, his dream and his passion. He currently lives within the community of Mead and has for the past 8 years. Dr. Andrews is excited to own the first fulltime veterinary medical center to serve the local communities and it will remain locally owned and operated. Personally, Dr. Andrews currently has 3 dogs (2 great Danes and a Molish mix) that he loves dearly – their names are Queen Elizabeth, Princess Madeline, Duquesa Sophia. In his rare spare time, he enjoys camping and hiking the many 14er’s in Colorado.
Gretchen Anderson, was born and raised in Minnesota, she moved to South Florida where she fell in love with the veterinary field. She started as a receptionist at Sunset Animal Hospital and then moved to a veterinary assistant position, before she moved to Colorado in 2009. Once she was settled in Fort Collins she decided to go back to school to become a Veterinary Technician at Fort Range Community College. She had a major medical concern during her schooling and unfortunately she did not finish the program. She was blessed to land a job as a veterinary assistant in Federal Heights, Co, then worked for a clinic closer to home. Last year she had major hip surgery and had to take a year off from the veterinary profession, 9 months later she’s back on my feet and very happy to be working at Mead Veterinary Medical Center. In her spare time she enjoys hanging out with her “kid” a golden/chow mix named Kane, snowboarding, and concerts. She truly enjoys life in all aspects.
Lead Veterinary Technician
I graduated from Bel-Rea in 2006 with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Veterinary Technology. Soon after I started my career with Dr. Andrews and Teri Farrington, and have been working as a team since- almost 10 years. I enjoy working in a family environment doing what I love everyday. I’m a Colorado native; therefore my hobbies include the outdoors such as hiking, fishing and camping. The majority of my time outside of work is spent with my husband, son and crazy cat Allie.
Veterinary Receptionist and Assistant
Jennifer Foote joined Mead Veterinary Medical Center about a year ago. She moved to Colorado from her hometown Saint Petersburg, Florida with over 22 years of experience as a veterinary receptionist and assistant. Jennifer made the move to Colorado in the summer of 2013, she loves the great outdoors, from road trips to 4×4 rides up into the mountains, and seeing all natures’ beauty that she can! When she is home you can find her fishing at some of the local lakes, cooking or digging in the dirt. She is happily married to Wayne and has a son, named Chris. Her furry ‘kids” include five cats, Lola the rescue dog, two tanks of fish and Scotty the bird, a naughty parakeet that blows razz berries to the cats.
Dr. Andrews and his staff were amazing! I called and was able to get an appointment for my giant kid in two hours and he made my anxious (rescued) dog relaxed and now on the road to recovery. The perfect balance of professionalism, friendliness, and complete care!Gina Rodman-YartzFacebook
The staff of 'chosen' family at Mead make all the difference in the care our dogs have received. I share how wonderful this vet medical center is with everyone who will listen! See for your self the difference that is made with this team.Liz BuffingtonFacebook
Their vet care and people skills are second to none and I have come to consider them not only at the top of their field but also friends. My dogs are now 12 and 13; I know they have the best care possible and when the time comes, sooner than we all want, I know we have the best team to take care of my dogs AND me.Christine ODellFacebook
Dr. Andrews and his team are lightyears ahead of the rest when it comes to compassion, expertise, and trustworthiness...I am proud to be one of his loyal following who will do whatever it takes to make sure my dogs continue in his incredible care.Sarah SalazarFacebook
I've taken all my pets to Doc John Andrews through every vet clinic he's been at in Colorado. So glad he's got his very own clinic now. I pass hundreds of vets on my hour drive to go to Mead - because Doc A really is THAT good. I wouldn't trust anyone else to my 4 and 3 legged fur kids.Sarah RutledgeGoogle
John is literally the only vet I trust my dogs to. He provided the ultimate vet care to my last dog, Brutus, and is providing unparalleled care to my current dog, Sammy. I have been to a lot of vets but haven't met someone who cares about your pets as much as John does. He is also very affordable!Greg McGeeGoogle
The staff here was amazing! They went above and beyond to explain things in terms that I would understand. They really let me participate in the decision making for a treatment plan for my old doggie. I'd highly recommend this place!!!!Kelley H.Yelp
