Dr. Charles CurieOwner
I am an Ashtabula County native. My family has been here since the 1800’s. They came here to farm and raise their families in the beautiful wooded North Country of Ohio. After graduating from The Ohio State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1978 I decided that my ancestors had the right idea and I too returned home to raise a family and practice veterinary medicine.
The faculty at OSU bestowed upon me the great honor of being the most outstanding large animal veterinarian in the class of ’78. I practiced large animal medicine and surgery almost exclusively for the next 20 years. I had built the Country Doctor Veterinary Clinic in 1983 and my associate veterinarians attended to small animals for many years while I stayed focused on the areas dairy and horse farms.
In 1996 a horse that I was working on attacked me and severely injured my neck. I was forced out of large animal practice and transitioned into small animal medicine and practice management. I love this every bit as much as my large animal days.
Over the years our clinic has evolved from a premier large animal practice into a premier small animal practice which has been nationally recognized for excellence in patient care and practice management.
I truly believe that our incredible staff deserves most of the credit for our success. I have had many amazing people work with me over the years and this has been the greatest pleasure of my long career. If you think about it; a veterinary clinic is just brick, mortar, medicine and equipment. It is the people that set it apart and I have been blessed with the greatest staff on the planet!!
The clients have been wonderful as well. We have over 13,000 clients in our data base and I can truly say that it has been a pleasure to know and work with so many people who are dedicated to their animals. We are really in the people business……..the animals don’t bring themselves to the Vet! Thankfully through the people we get to meet and help so many wonderful animals.
