Meet Our Team


Countryside Veterinary Clinic was established in 1972 by the late Dr. Jewell Dean Schlapp. Dean had a strong passion for animals and a vision of a veterinary clinic that cares for pets with the same intensity of medical care and consideration given to human patients. It was his devotion to veterinary medicine that has made Countryside Veterinary Clinic what it is today - a full-service facility offering the most progressive and up-to-date treatment and technology for pets.

Countryside Veterinary Clinic employs approximately 30 individuals. Our team is a combination of Doctors, managers, technicians, receptionists, animal care takers and housekeeping personnel. Regular attendance of continuing education seminars and meetings enables us to stay up-to-date and informed. We are accredited members of AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) and comply with their high standards of excellence in all areas of our hospital protocols. Our healthcare team complements each other, and we work toward the common goal of excellence in the delivery of care for your pet.

  • "Countryside is wonderful!!! I take all three of my cats here, and I'm always so impressed with how they accommodate for each cat based on their personalities. They handle each one according to their unique needs. My most timid female is getting over a UTI. After they weighed her in the back, they brought her back over to me loosely wrapped in a blanket that felt fresh out of the dryer! I absolutely LOVE that attention to detail and genuine care that my furkids receive here."
