Dr. Olivia Johnson was raised on a farm in southern Minnesota. Her love for animals started as a young child on her grandparent’s farm. After high school graduation she moved to Iowa and obtained a Masters degree in Animal Science and Higher Education, and a Bachelors degree in Dairy Science from Iowa State University. She then moved to Saint Paul, Minnesota to complete her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota.
Dr. Johnson worked as a small animal veterinarian in Austin, Minnesota for one year after graduation. At which time, her family relocated to Chippewa Falls, WI. In 2012, she began working with Dr. Don Rothbauer at County Veterinary Hospital in Bloomer, WI. Dr. Olivia also taught in the veterinary program at Globe University in Eau Claire. She is grateful for her career in veterinary medicine and although she enjoys small animal dentistry and medicine, she is currently focused on her interests in geriatric, hospice, and end of life care.
Her very supportive husband, Jason, has an unequivocal bond with animals. Their family includes Mason (2007-present), a yellow Labrador who fell in love with Jason after meeting Dr. Olivia. A couple of years later they added a black Labrador, Julia (2010-present). Since that time they have cared for two rescue geriatric dogs, a white Siberian Husky named Beaumont (1998-2013), and an ivory Labrador Bucky (2000-present). They adopted a gray, domestic shorthair Rosco, “Kitty” in 2013. Last year they welcomed their first child, Lucas.
When not working, Dr. Olivia loves to fish, enjoy the outdoors, and most of all, spend time with her family. She loves getting to know her clients, hearing their stories, and sharing in the beautiful experience of in-home pet hospice and euthanasia. Dr. Olivia Johnson is honored to have started Legacy Companions as she can think of no greater tribute to the human-animal bond than the compassionate end of life care from the comfort of home.
Thank you so much for the kind and compassionate care of Patches in his last days. We appreciate how concerned you were for him and respectful you were of our decision. You informed us so well of his condition that making the decision was easier. You were a comfort to us in a very difficult time.

We want to thank each of you for the caring and compassionate professionalism that helped us through a very difficult, but necessary decision. On any given day you help an animal heal and return to their families, make sure they stay healthy; or sometimes help them say good-bye. Our dog Shadow touched our lives deeply and we will always remember the kindness and tenderness you gave him.
