Paul Deal, D.V.M.

Dr. Deal is the owner and only veterinarian at Countryside. He graduated from 'The Ohio State University' in 1972. Immediately after graduation, he moved to the Oakland area and has practiced there since.

In 1977, he helped organize a comprehensive degree program at the local community college in veterinary technology. During and after the program, Dr. Deal continued to practice veterinary medicine.

He currently limits his practice to small animals. Most aspects of small animal medicine are available including health care, preventive medicine, surgery, and behavior counseling.


Cheyenne began working at Countryside Animal Hospital when she was still in high school, and quickly showed exceptional talent for working with animals.

After graduating, she continued at Countryside to further explore her passion for helping animals. Since then, she has taken on a much larger role, in the business itself.

After eight years at Countryside, Cheyenne has moved into the role of Office Manager and Veterinarian Technician. She has a knowledge of everything that goes on inside our office and keeps a close eye on the health and well being of each and every patient.

Cheyenne gives each pet that comes through our door the best health care we can possibly provide.


Dawn is our Veterinarian Assistant. She began as a client with several of her pets she would bring to us. We could tell she loved animals very dearly. When she applied for the job, we knew she would be a great team member.

Since working here, she has shown great connection to both the animals and clients.

Her dream job has always been caring for pets and, with a sweet soul like hers, its the perfect fit. She truly cares for every patient that comes in the door, and she loves your pets as much as she loves hers!
