CALVS Mission

Clover Acres Livestock Veterinary Services seeks to improve the quality of life of local livestock, help farmers improve the productivity of their animals, and help ensure that consumers receive high-quality animal products. CALVS promotes effective preventative care and treatment strategies, providing compassionate care that supports animal welfare and takes into account owners’ values.

Location

CALVS is currently based in Proctorsville, Cavendish, VT.  CALVS is an exclusively mobile practice.  That means that the veterinarian will come to your home or farm. There is no need to put your animals on a trailer and drive somewhere.  Simply call CALVS, and set up an appointment.

Dr. Johnson

CALVS is owned and operated by Dr. Dianne Johnson.  Dr. Johnson graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech in May 2012.  Dianne is thankful to be back in Vermont (the other “VT”), where she is close to her family and many friends.

Prior to establishing CALVS, Dr. Johnson did a 6-month internship at Cross-Border Equine in Springfield, VT.  Dr. Johnson enjoys working with cattle, small ruminants, camelids, and horses, and will also work with swine and poultry on an as-needed basis.  Dianne is especially interested in sustainable farming, pasture management, and preventative care.

In her spare time, Dianne enjoys reading, walking and hiking with her dog, and crafts.

Prior to studying veterinary medicine, Dianne studied psychology and worked as an outdoor education instructor.  She enjoys teaching youth and adults husbandry and veterinary medical skills.
