Certified Veterinary Technician

My name is Emily Crutchfield. I have always loved animals and dreamed of working with them. I went to Arkansas State University-Beebe where I earned an Associate of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. I have been with Countryside Animal Hospital since August of 2012 and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I thrive on being in a position where I can love and help dogs and cats, however none touch my heart more than our feline patients, they are my passion. My precious babies are spread out between my Grandmother's house and mine. Sunny is an Australian Shepherd and Chance is a lab/Pitt mix. Spook, Buddy, Lizzy, Lou, Tucc, Johnny, Millie, Louise, Loreali and Sugars are my beautiful and sometimes fickle felines!
