About Us

Mojave River Equine Veterinary Service (MREVS) was first established in July 2011 in the high desert of Southern California. We offer a progressive equine practice dedicated to our clients and patients with Dr. Johnson’s main focus being Routine and Advanced Equine Dentistry. The practice covers all of Southern California and other parts of California and Nevada.

Dr. Jacob Johnson attended California Polytechnic State University, Pomona where he received his Bachelor degree in Microbiology in 2003 and the University of Illinois where he received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2007. During his graduate studies, he enjoyed advancing his dental studies beyond what is learned in school by attending and putting on dental courses, along with extensive relief work across the country and 3rd world countries. Free time was spent learning from many veterinarians throughout Texas, Nevada, California, Wisconsin, Illinois and Kentucky. Dr. Johnson is an Apple Valley native who may be a familiar face to many through his involvement with the San Bernardino County Sheriff”s Department or as the previous owner of Johnson’s Firewood.

Dr. Johnson enjoys riding and spending time or traveling with his family, Christel and daughters Ryan, Mia, Kenzie and Karlie.

Dr. Johnson believes in continued education and makes it a top priority to stay up on the latest developments in research, medicine, techniques, technology and pharmaceuticals. Even though the majority of his practice is a mobile veterinary service, we do have a facility in Apple Valley, California set up to assist the patients that travel from out of the area for routine care and a clinic in Murrieta where most surgeries are performed. Dr. Johnson takes pride in offering and referring patients to the most progressive veterinary care.
