After years of using their services for the canine and feline members of my family, I would cross 3 counties for the expertise and loving care found in the vets and staff of Countryside Animal Hospital. My experiences include both new puppies and kittens and very geriatric dogs and cats. Prices are more than competive and wait time is short or non-existent. If I have ever had to wait, it was due to an emergency that came in and I would gladly wait to put a sick or injured pet first. Even that time was only a few minuites as scheduling is so expertly done. My cat lived to be 23 years old under their care and was pain-free and medically sound under Dr. Parsley's medications right up to the day she passed. The choices for geriatric patients (the animals) are presented to you that range from simple lifestyle changes, medications, and the most advanced hospitals in and out of state to inform you of every possible procedure available for your aging pet. I have called after hours to be immediately connected with Dr. Parsley (I switched my meds with my small breed dog) instead of wasting precious time with a Poison Control and then having to go to a Emergency Pet Center. Before I came in contact with Countryside Animal Hospital, I have had to use Pet Emergency Clinics that were far away and the cost was extremely high to skyrocked. With Countryside, you have immediate care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year since you can be connected with a vet and they will come in. Of course, this service is a little higher than regular office visits, but tragic animal accidents and illnesses rarely happen on schedule. And, when the time comes, putting an animal to sleep as I have done once with Dr Day and once with Dr Parsley is done with such compassion, love, and devoted service to the pet owner that it softened the burden of grief in a way I have never experienced with any other clinic. Also, their fees for that service are cheaper than any other I have experienced.
On second thought, I would probably cross 5 counties and 3 rivers for the love, compassion, and expertise of everyone connected with Countryside Animal Hospital.
You will leave with a healthier pet and a passel of new friends.
