On the Road with Doc & Squirt Dr. Eugene Johnson has worked as a veterinarian in Platte City, Missouri since 1995. In 2008, he launched a mobile vet clinic with which he travels to his clients homes with his loyal dog Squirt. “When I started this I thought I’d be working with a lot of large animals, but nowadays all I really see are house pets.” As Platte City gradually changed from an agricultural region to a suburban area, so has the region’s animal’s population, and Dr. Johnson has adapted to this evolving situation. His clients call him for many reasons, for mobility reasons, or for convenience, but overwhelmingly, most clients answer that they call Dr. Johnson simply because they love and trust him. This story was shot over three days as part of the Missouri Photo Workshop 66 in Platte City, Missouri. It won the Spirit of the Workshop Award, one of the two top workshop awards.
