About Us – A New Face on the Business

merideth and staffDr. Merideth Early and FCVC StaffTwenty-five years ago, Dr. Mahoney achieved her vision of opening a veterinary clinic in Johnstown where she could provide loving care for pets from the moment they come home to the tearful good-bye.  Recently, she decided it was time for her to turn her focus to other dreams and decided to hand over the reins to someone new.

I, Dr. Meredith Early, am just the woman for the job! I share Dr. Mahoney’s passion for the human-animal bond and strive to be a partner with people in maintaining the health of their beloved friends.

I bring decades of experience to Full Circle, having started out as a technician in the 90s. Completing my Microbiology degree and Veterinary degrees at Colorado State University and I have been serving pets and their families as a veterinarian for more than 11 years.

As a veterinarian, I have many varied interests but a particular passion for surgery, dentistry, and identifying and ridding pets of parasites.  Outside of work I spend time enjoying all that Colorado has to offer – hiking, boating, paddle boarding, and you may see me riding to work on my motorcycle.

I am a proud Colorado native, and a life-long Weld County resident.  Growing up in the town of Nunn and having lived in Greeley and Ault before settling in Johnstown with my husband in 2013. Together we have 4 grown children, 2 Golden Retrievers (Ares and Perseus), and 1 cat – Nermal.

You may be seeing some new faces but expect the same compassionate care you have come to love as Full Circle Veterinary Care starts a new cycle.

You will get to meet our staff with their bio’s soon!

If Dr. Patty didn’t love animals, we wouldn’t have our Mr. Tibbs. When Mr. Tibbs was a kitten, he fell out of a tree and broke his leg. His owners thought he should be destroyed. Dr. Patty took Mr. Tibbs in, fixed his broken leg and hip dysplaysia and kept him as the mascot at the clinic, until a new home could be found for him. Mr. Tibbs went on several vacations, but did not find a permanent home until I walked in the door and saw him. He is an amazingly regal cat. Mr. B. and I took him home and now he gets to go see Dr. Patty and staff for regular checkups. Mr. Tibbs is king of our house and our hearts. Thanks, Dr. Patty! –Carolyn B

This is the best Veterinary Clinic Ever!!!! I have been to some other ones and I just don’t trust them like I do with Full Circle. With other vet clinics a lot of the times I would have different Vet Doctors each time and I would have to explain the situation over and over again each and every time. They did not write good notes, or they just don’t communicate with each other correctly. With full circle they have a more home based staff, that do communicate with each other on a professional level. So when you come in for your appointment they are ready to take care of you and your pet, with no problems what so ever. All of their Staff is extremely friendly and they always have smiles on their faces. When I leave from there I feel confident that my pet is in the best hands, with no doubts to boot. And I leave happy with a smile on my face as well. – Zachary V.

  • They actually cared about me and my pet. The staff gives awesome service and you can tell they genuinely care about you and your pet. Everyone was really friendly and the atmosphere is very comfortable. It’s much different than the hospital feel we are use to when going to another vet clinic before. Thanks everyone for all that you do!
