Dr. Meurer was born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas. After graduating from Catholic High School for Boys he attended the University of Central Arkansas where he graduated with a B.S. in Biology. He went on to Tuskegee University in Alabama for veterinary school where he served as class president and graduated Summa cum Laude in 2010. After graduation, Dr. Meurer and his wife, Jennifer, moved back to Arkansas to be closer to their families. He has been practicing a mixture of small animal medicine and emergency medicine in central Arkansas since then.
He and his wife have two girls, Isabelle (12) and Lily (9). They have one dog, a Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle mix named Lexie, who can sometimes be quite the handful. In his free time he enjoys fishing, waterfall hiking, coaching his daughter’s volleyball team and cheering on the Hogs. He and his family are also avid road trippers. They have traveled to 17 different states in the last year. Some of their stops have included the Badlands, Mount Rushmore, the Rocky Mountains, Canada and most recently Niagara Falls.
Dr. Meurer’s favorite things about being a veterinarian are working up complex cases as well as all of the relationships he makes along the way with clients and patients.
