★★★★★ I love everyone there...they have lovingly taken excellent care of the 3 golden retrievers that l have loved. There are no words to describe their care and compassion. THE BEST! You want the BEST? GO THERE!Mary W.Mary W. ★★★★★ Any message I leave is answered quickly. The day after my dogs get their vaccines, I always receive a call to check on the dogs. I respect every doctor at Countryside Clinic and each one thoroughly explains what is going on with my dogs. And the entire staff is courteous and so friendly.We’ve been using Countryside Vet Clinic for over 40 years. HIGHLY recommend!Steven S.Steven S. ★★★★★ 6 years ago, I called Countryside Veternary Clinic asking for help with how to deal with my dying cat. It was my first pet ever in my life, and the lady on the phone was the most patient and caring person, talking me through the steps and just genuinely caring. 4 years ago, I had to put my dog down, and again, the most genuine and caring people were there to help me through that time. And sadly, today, I had to put down my last pet. Even though none of my animals has ever been to this vet clinic, they took me in when I was hurting the most with the loss of my pets, and helped me through each step. Thank you for being so caring towards animals that were never in your care.Amanda R.Amanda R. ★★★★★ The vet that saw my dog was extremely knowledgeable. I had my dog's records (from Jan 1st ) faxed to Countryside, and the vet was very well versed in my dog's ongoing medical concerns over the years. I took my dog to Countryside for a fresh set of eyes regarding ongoing medical concerns. My dog will be 18 on July 4. I was very pleased with our visit. Although the Vet knew of my dog's extensive heath record, that didn't stop her from listening to my concerns to understand what I was saying, rather than just responding. To me, that's a hugh difference. I already have additional appointments set up. All positives at Countryside Vet. Clinic in Yorkville IL.

My entire world was falling apart around me, and I was getting ready to move across the country when all of a sudden my cat, Al, started acting weird. Long long long story short, Al had crystals he couldn't pass through his little fella. Dr. Schlapp was the only one who would do the surgery on such short notice and under the circumstances. It was emergency surgery the day before my cross country trip, during a snow storm, on his day off. Clearly, it's all about the animals here.I am forever grateful for Dr. Schlapp and his team!

They know what they are doing; they like what they are doing; they care about you and your pet. 10 years and counting – through thick and thin.

Dave B.

I have been taking my pets here for over 20 years. Love the awesome staff and care Dr. Schlapp has given my pets over the years.

Sandra W.

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.
