William George, DVM

Veterinarian/Owner
Dr. George is passionate about his care of animals. He works hard with the pets and their owners to provide the care that is best for all involved. A 1985 graduate of The University of Illinois, he enjoys both medical and surgical challenges with a special interest in orthopedics. When he is not working at the office or around the home he likes to stay up to date on the latest developments in veterinary medicine as well as current affairs. For relaxation he enjoys drives in the country and will occasionally try his hand at a round of golf or trap. When he does get a chance to travel, he craves to go someplace warm and scuba dive.



Sara Fox, DVM

Veterinarian/Associate
Dr. Fox was born in Minnesota and lived there until she was 10 when they moved to Illinois. She has her degree in veterinary medicine from the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois, Champaign Urbana and a degree in Animal Sciences, also from the University of Illinois. Ophthalmology, exotic, zoo and wildlife medicine are Dr. Fox's areas of special interest. She is owned by a tuxedo cat named Slinky Tailchaser, a friendly stray that adopted her. Hobbies include reading science fiction and fantasy, fishing, drawing, photography and rollerblading.

Tabitha

Co-Practice Manager
Hello my name is Tabitha. I started working for Country Veterinary Service as a receptionist in May 2015. I am the mother of two wonderful little girls. I am currently going to school for medical coding and billing. Growing up I would visit family in Southern Illinois, who had a farm, and would help with all of the animals, which I truly loved doing. I enjoy working with all of the wonderful clients and pets at Country Veterinary Service. I look forward to learning all I can from Dr. George and the rest of the team. In my free time, I like to spend time with my family.





Luci

Veterinary Assistant
Hi, My name is Luci. I am a veterinary assistant here at Country Veterinary Service. You may not always see me around the reception desk because I am often assisting Dr. George with surgery, in-house testing/lab work, or patient treatments. I am currently working towards certification as a Veterinary Technician through the Penn Foster Veterinary Technology program. Before joining Country Veterinary Service in January 2015, I completed an animal welfare internship at the Racine Zoo. I lived in New York City for a few years and completed two externships at Gramercy Park Animal Hospital and Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners. I also volunteered at the Wild Bird Fund in NYC. My favorite aspects of my job include dental prophylaxis and caring for our patients after surgery. Outside of work, I enjoy reading, dining out, traveling with my boyfriend, and taking my Coonhound, Oscar, for walks in the local forest preserves.



Mickenzi

Veterinary Assistant
Hello, my name is Mickenzi and I have been at Country Veterinary Service since November 2013. I plan to attend technical college to receive my associates degree in Veterinary Technology. I have always had pets growing up and knew I wanted to help care for them from the time I was very young. Getting the opportunity to work at Country Veterinary Service is wonderful. Every day there is something new and exciting and I'm always getting the chance to expand my knowledge. When I am not at work, I enjoy crafting, shopping, being outdoors, and spending time with my English Setter, Belle, and my cat, Charlie.



Tabytha

Veterinary Assistant
My name is Tabytha and I started working at Country Veterinary Service in July 2015 as a receptionist. I was born and raised in Cooperstown, NY. I moved to this area in June 2014 from Charleston, SC where I resided for about seven years, working with mules and horses. I live on a small five acre farm where, on my days off, you'll find me in my greenhouse tending to the vegetables or out and about with my animals, small and large. In Winter months I enjoy curling up with my Beagle Hazel, a warm blanket, a bit of hot chocolate and a good book. Other days I'll hit the slopes, snowboarding.

Hello my name is Abby. I recently received my certification in Veterinary Assisting while in Florida. I have been working in the field since October 2015 and recently moved back to the area and joined the team at Country Veterinary Service in March20l6.

Together we enjoy going on little hikes, playing board games and spending time with family. I look forward to seeing you when you come in.





Max

Feline Extraordinaire
Max is a Brown Mackerel Tabby DSH(domestic shorthair) and the ambassador of our clinic. He came to us in September 2012 as a stray. A staff member was outside for a break in her car, with the door open, and he jumped into her lap and almost gave her a heart attack. He was extremely thirsty and hungry and had some companions, fleas and ear mites. He was micro-chipped so we were able to find out information through the humane society about him, including that his name was Max and that he was born on June 28th 2003. It turns out he came from a mile away, straight up busy Browns Lake Drive, and survived without injury to find his forever home at Country Veterinary Service. Say hello to Max when you visit, he loves company!
