Our Rensselaer Team
Dr. Marissa Veld
Dr. Veld was born and raised in DeMotte, Indiana, and spent her school breaks working for Davis Veterinary Clinics since 2013.
She returned to Davis Veterinary Clinic as a full-time veterinarian in 2019 after completing her doctorate of veterinary medicine at Purdue University. Dr. Veld is particularly interested in feline medicine and neurology.
She enjoys getting to work with her awesome veterinary team and clients to help all furry friends enjoy happy, healthy lives with their families.
In her spare time, you can find Dr. Veld at Purdue ballgames, Zumba class, hiking or horseback riding at state parks, spending time with friends and family both near and far, or taking her cat Loki for a stroller ride around the neighborhood.
Dr. Johnathon Buis
My name is Johnathon Buis. I have worked in the veterinary field in various positions since high school. Then, in 2018 I graduated Purdue University and became a veterinarian.
I have an interest in arthritic care with a focus on large breeds, and regenerative medicine. When not at the clinic, I am with my wife, three young children, and our family pets. They occupy most of my free time.

I have 2 mixed breed dogs at home that keep me almost as busy as taking care of my 4 kiddos! I also have a wonderful husband that motivates me to thrive and keep moving forward in the veterinary world!
I have been in the veterinary field for over 26 years! RVT for 23 years and at Davis for 8 of those years. I have always had a love for surgery, anesthesia & emergency medicine.
You will find me mostly behind the scenes doing “techy” things such as being your pets surgery/anesthesia/dental tech, running lab work, placing catheters, reading cytology’s and playing the part of “vampire” to draw blood and more.
When I am not at work, my family & I raise & train quarter horses for barrel racing. We enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, trail riding, fishing, and riding quads, etc.
At the moment, we currently have 4 horses and a barn dog named Sammie and multiple barn kitties. You will usually find me at the barn every night and at horse shows/rodeos on the weekends! 🙂
I have called Davis Veterinary Service my home away from home for the last 10 years.
As much as I adore all of our furry friends that visit us here, my main role has been to make sure their family is also taken care of too. I have 3 amazing dogs at home and we have been blessed with an amazing little grandson.
My husband and I love and dote on him as much as we can. When I have any spare time, I love to garden, go fishing, and spend time outdoors.
