Dr. Jon Plant was one of those kids who always wanted to be a veterinarian. While many say that as kids, in time, most switch to other interests. Not Dr. Plant. “I stuck with it all through high school and college, and I didn’t give up on it,” he says. Plant graduated from veterinary school at Oregon State University in 1988, but as his career evolved over the years, he found himself in consulting and academia.
Until last year that is, when he opened his own clinic after realizing that directly helping patients was what he really wanted to do.
