About Dr. Geoff

Dr. Weech grew up on a farm just west of Knoxville, IL, and graduated from Knoxville High School. He then went to Bob Jones University, where he received a BS in Biology in 1983. Then he went to Western Illinois College and got accepted to the veterinary school at the University of Illinois in 1986 and graduated with honors in 1990 with a DVM in veterinary medicine.

Since then, he has worked at the Galesburg Animal Hospital and the Monmouth Small Animal Hospital, purchasing the Monmouth hospital in 1993.

Dr. Weech enjoys fishing bass tournaments with the West Central Illinois Bassmasters and competes on many local lakes and the Mississippi river quite successfully. He and his wife Jodie have 3 dogs, Willa, a Shar-Pei, Plum, an English Bulldog, and Leggus, a Cane Corso. He also has an Eclectus Parrot named Giggles, a Caique named Clemmie, and an ornery parrotlet named Iggy.

Dr. Weech’s special interests in the field include reproduction work doing ovulation timing, C sections, and semen evaluation. He also enjoys soft tissue surgery, including laser surgery.

About Dr. Carls
Monmouth Small Animal Hospital is extremely excited to announce that Dr. Carls is on our team Full-Time‼️

Dr. Carls is working Monday through Thursday seeing appointment’s only. Please give the office a call to schedule your pets first exam with her! 👩‍⚕️🐾

Dr. Carls is a Illinois native, originally from Orion, IL.

Dr. Carls interest in animals, medicine, and helping people led her to pursue her undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences at the University of Illinois at Champaign and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University.

Over the past years, Dr. Carls has been doing traveling relief work that included coming to Monmouth Small Animal Hospital since early last year. She got the chance to work with our amazing staff and community and decided to join the team full time. 💕

Dr. Carls is very excited to have the opportunity to work within a community of great people and help their pets. Which makes her professional interests of preventative and internal medicine very important to her as it is her way to continue to the community.

When she’s not in the clinic, Dr. Carls enjoys spending time with her family, two dogs (an English Labrador and Weimaraner), working in the garden, cooking or smoking meat, and reading new books. 📚
