Countryside Animal Hospital officially opened its doors on April 19, 2004. Dr. Amy Charlton had the vision to make Countryside a place where people felt comfortable, welcome and a part of the family. She never wanted a hospital that had a sterile and cold look or feeling. Countryside is proud to offer our clients not only conventional medicine, but alternative therapies as well. We offer herbal medicine, food therapy, acupuncture, laser therapy, and most recently, Tui Na (medical massage). Our trained technicians help teach our clients how to use medical massage to improve the comfort and treatment outcome of their pets at home. Our patients are not just a number to us, we take our time to get to know each and every patient and their parents on an individual basis. Taking the time to become familiar with the patients and their families allows us to build custom treatment plans and yearly exams, specific to their needs and lifestyle. No two pets are the same, they are unique individuals just as we are and we have a strong belief that they should be treated as the unique individuals they are.
Countryside Animal Hospital is a full service hospital offering general medicine, preventative medicine, wellness care, dentistry and surgery. We have access to board certified surgeons and we have all of our ultrasounds performed by a board certified internal medicine specialist in house.
So on behalf of Dr. Amy, her staff and Meeshu, the house cat, we welcome you to Countryside Animal Hospital. We are glad to have you and your pets as a part of our family!
