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.

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.

After graduating, Iliana moved to Georgia to begin her career in animal health and has been in the field ever since. After moving to Colorado, three years ago, Iliana’s path soon crossed Dr. Andrews through their beloved hobby of horseback riding and showing. Iliana was delighted when the opportunity of joining the Mead Veterinary Medical Center team presented itself. Iliana has three dogs Ramble (Catahoula Leopard Dog), Ralli (Catahoula Plott Mix), Reiner (Rhodesian Ridgeback) and her Quarter Horse “Brooks”.

Alexis was born and raised on a small farm in Lee, Florida where she found her passion for animals at a young age! She started working with animals at age 10 while volunteering at local animal shelters and using her home as a sanctuary for all strays to get a good meal and some love. When she moved to Colorado, Alexis continued her passion while working with animals at doggy daycares and doing in-home animal training. From there, she started as a receptionist/assistant at a small animal hospital in Boulder where she expanded her knowledge and realized this was her calling. She then found her way to our family in 2020 and has been in love with the clients and their fur babies ever since! When Alexis is not caring for the wonderful kiddos in our community, she spends all her free time with her dog, Lucy, a 3-year-old Schnauzer mix that has been joined to Alexis’ hip since she was 3 months old. Alexis and Lucy love to hike and swim but also can’t get enough of their snuggle time together!
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
