The Countryside Veterinary Hospital Team

Our staff includes one veterinarian, two licensed veterinary technicians, one veterinary administrative assistant and receptionist. Each team member takes great pride in our hospital standards.

We know that there is a very special bond between pets and their owners. Your dog or cat is a family member and when a family member needs medical attention you want to be confident that they receive treatment from competent, caring and compassionate veterinary professionals. At Countryside Veterinary Hospital we understand that, and we strive to provide this in a pleasant, stress-free environment for you and your pet.

Countryside Veterinary Hospital provides excellent patient care and personalized service. We take the time to develop a bond with clients and their pets. We pride ourselves in being able to make our clients feel they are important to us and not rushed during their visit.

Our Staff

Meg Dunphy

Meg Dunphy (RVT) grew up around animals at her grandparent's farm. Trying to take care of all the animals, from Holstein cows to tiny barn kittens, she always knew she wanted to have a career in animal welfare. She took the Veterinary Technician course at Oulton College in 2007 and has enjoyed working with animals in clinics and shelters ever since. She has two kitties of her own named “Tweak” and “Banjo” and hopes to continue to add to her critter family!


Laura Bell is a Veterinary Assistant. She graduated from the Vet Assistant Program at Eastern College in 2018. She grew up on a farm where she found a love for animals and always knew she would pursue a career path with them. In her spare time she enjoys spending time skiing or horseback riding, also being with family and friends. She has a 2 year old dog of her own named “Bentley" who has taught her one dog is enough for now.

Bev Crouse

Bev Crouse is a Registered Veterinary Technician. She has worked in the vet profession since 2009. She has always lived in this community, which is an added bonus for traveling. Along with spending her free time with all of her fur babies, she also enjoys the outdoors. Walking and wheeling are some of her extra activities away from work in the spring, summer and fall and Netflix has her covered for the cold winter days.
