Dr. John Clappier

Dr. John Clappier is the practice owner of Hudson Road Animal Hospital. He graduated from the University of Minnesota's College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008 after receiving an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences. Dr. John, as the team knows him, literally grew up at Hudson Road Animal Hospital; his dad was one of the original owners and Dr. John is happy to carry on the family legacy.

Dr. John lives in Woodbury with his wife, Kellie, and their 2 children, Lucy and Benjamin. Lucy is a curly-haired, adventuresome little girl; she keeps her mom and dad on their toes most of the time. Ben is happy little guy who loves to be funny and has the best facial expressions in the world.

As for the furry family, the Clappiers have two dogs and three cats. All the cats were rescued from different situations. Forest Whitaker is the eldest cat but the most acrobatic of the bunch. Theodore, or Teddy for short, was found in a garage. He is a tiny orange and white cat with a pushed in face. The youngest cat is Lennie, a orange Persian with a personality all his own.

For the dogs, Nana is the oldest. She is a brindle standard poodle who keeps everyone including the backyard squirrels on high alert. The newest addition to the family is an apricot colored standard poodle named "Artoo." Yes, he is named after R2D2 from "Star Wars." He keeps his furry sister busy with all his chewing and rough play, but he loves love from the family.

Having five pets and two children keeps life fun and interesting. Their family is complete with a large freshwater aquarium housing several tropical fish.

In his free time, Dr. John enjoys running, basketball, video games, cooking, and website design. He participates in 5k races around the metro area and some day plans to run in a marathon.

Dr. John's favorite part of Veterinary Medicine is the investigation. He likes working through cases and solving pets' problems. He looks forward to working with you and your pet, and helping solve whatever problem ails them.
