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.

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.
