Two young veterinarians opened Countryside Veterinary Clinic in 1988 after taking the veterinary oath “to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society through the protection of animal health and welfare...” That one phrase has borne true in more ways than can be counted.
Owning a small business in Elliott City is an honor. We appreciate your trust in our doctors and staff and your support and we hope we give back, that much and more, in return.
Small businesses are neighbors helping neighbors, friends helping friends, creating jobs in the community where people can live and work locally, contributing to the tax base for improvements to roads, schools, and area green spaces, in a culture of happiness, respect, and contentment.
As a privately owned veterinary hospital we have the unique ability to provide personal professional attention to the individual needs of the patient, the client, and be responsive to the vibe of our community.
We have certainly enjoyed fueling a new generation of animal lovers and animal health providers by: Passing along our knowledge through career days at:
- Elementary Schools
- Middle Schools
- High Schools
- High School Mentorships
Hospital tours for:
- Brownie Girl Scouts
- Cub Scouts
- Home Schoolers
We continue to support local fundraisers for schools and the Y- Turkey Trot.
- Local athletic teams
- Mountain Biking Clubs
- And, of course, Mountain Biking Events
Taking pride in our community, one of our favorite activities is the Adopt-A-Road program where we can be seen cleaning trash from Landing Road three times or more per year.
Thank you for partnering with us. The oath “to use my scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society” has certainly fulfilled us in more ways than, as a new graduate in 1986, we could have ever imagined!
