Dr. Daniel Meakin
Dr. Dan graduated from The Ohio State School of Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing veterinary medicine for 21 years. Dan says a strong drive to help animals-in-need and a passion for the biological sciences led him to become a vet. He specializes in orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, as well as exotic pets.
Raccoons, kinkajous, and reptiles are among his favorite animals – he says you can’t just have one! If you were to visit the Meakin home, you would find 15 dogs, 7 cats, 4 pot-bellied pigs, 4 sheep, 3 goats, 2 tortoises, 1 kinkajou, 2 rabbits, 6 guinea pigs, 2 chinchillas, a rat, a packman frog, a bearded dragon, a red eared slider, 2 sugar gliders, 2 pigeons, and a goldfish (...and 5 kids!)
Dan doesn’t believe in spare time. When he’s not busy being a veterinarian, he enjoys working out, racquet sports and, as we all know, playing rock n’ roll with his band, Dr. Dan and The Stray Dogs.
