He is a 2015 graduate of Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, where he graduated with honors.

Dr. Dan Meakin
Dr. Dan Meakin, Associate Veterinarian
Dr. Dan grew up in Mt. Lookout and began his lifetime commitment to animals at a very young age. He started his collection of exotic pets at the age of 9 with reptiles (boas, iguanas, and various local species), ferrets, rabbits, and normal dogs and cats. He was a junior zoologist at the Cincinnati zoo during his early teens and while most teenagers were getting into trouble, he was attending rounds at the zoo and hanging with an elite group of future zoologists and educators.

Dr. Dan graduated from St. Xavier high school where he gave mini-courses on reptiles and frequently entertained his classmates with various exotic animals he would bring to the biology classroom. His yearbook picture has him holding a 3-foot alligator. During high school, he worked at a reptile dealer called Reptile World, where he held cobras and handled various venomous pit vipers. During his junior and senior years, he worked at Montgomery Animal Hospital as a vet assistant.

Dr. Dan went to college at the University of Notre Dame and studied biology. He smuggled an 8-foot boa into his dorm room and had an aquarium with aquatic turtles. After college, he attended veterinary school at The Ohio State University, where he graduated with Dr. Linda in 1989. Dr. Dan completed a 1-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at West la veterinary medical group before returning to Cincinnati in 1990. After 2 years of working with Dr. Dill at Cherry Grove Animal Hospital, Dr. Dan opened All Creatures Animal Hospital in Amelia in 1992 with his wife Dr. Linda. 29 years and 5 children later, Dr. Dan has settled into his new role as medical director of All Creatures Animal Hospital in Anderson. Besides exotic pet care, his interests include orthopedics, ophthalmology, and oncology.

Ariel, Customer Service Representative
I got interested in veterinary medication not only because I love animals, but because simply being around them makes me happy. Helping improve the lives of animals and educating the public about these amazing creatures that are all around us. I have worked in the vet field for 3 years, however, I have worked in the pet industry for over 11 years. The compassion and love I have for animals and their owners is what has kept me in this field. I have a total of 11 animals- 3 dogs (Buster, Champ, and scarlet), 1 cat (Ripley Wayne), 2 Bearded Dragons (Corbin and Big Juicy), 2 leopard geckos (Ellie and Festus), 1 Green Cheek Conure (Kiwi), 1 Sulcata Tortoise (Felicia), and a Pac man frog named Pete.

When I am not at work I enjoy time with my family and hiking with my boyfriend.

Eventually, in the near future, I would like to continue my education and go to school to be a registered vet tech.

Linda, Customer Service Representative
Hi, my Name is Linda, I have always had an interest in the veterinary field since I was a young child. Since the chance of going to vet school was not in my cards, I went to the University of Cincinnati and graduated in 1995 with my associates degree in applied science in order to become a technician. My passion for animals is what keeps me in this profession however, after 20 plus years as a technician and my health issues I became a customer service Representative at All Creatures in 2014, at the Anderson location.

I have six cats: Princess Lola Fuzzbucket, Momma’s Little suckler, Baby Dale, Xena, Donner Doo, and Letty Lou. I also have three dogs: Bit Bit, Molly, and Logan.

Even with all the craziness going on and with our household full of animals I like to try to find ways of relaxing by taking my son and fiance fishing. I like fishing too, but I don’t touch the worms or the fish, however, it’s fun casting the line out and watching the sunset on the water. One interesting fact that some people may not know about me is that I am a third-degree black belt. I no longer train but I still have the passion and inner strength that helps me every day.
