Meet the friendly staff at Monticello Animal Hospital!


Dr. John Hageman

Senior Veterinarian

Dr. Hageman grew up in rural Benton County surrounded by animals, wild and domestic. After serving in the United States Marine Corps, he decided to follow his passion of the natural sciences and pursues a career as a veterinarian. From a student to an employee, employee to business partner, and from a partner with full veterinary practice owner, Dr. Hageman's animal healthcare career has taken many forms. Through thirty years as a doctor of veterinary medicine one thing has stayed the same, his goal of treating every animal that walks in his practice with the level of veterinary care and compassion he would expect for his own pets.
