In addition to our two locations, Countryside Veterinary Service offers out-call and ambulatory services to your home or ranch for large and small animals.
We welcome you to our practice and love caring for pets in our community. Please come by and meet our team!
If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation to help a person in need get veterinary care for their pet, we have set up a charitable foundation through the AVMA. 100% of these funds will be available to our veterans, the elderly on a fixed income, or a family that has just had a major life event like a flood or fire. If you click this link, it will take you to a page designated for donations to Countryside Veterinary Service. Any amount is appreciated! Thank you!
Dr. Tammy Eichmann graduated from Tuft’s Veterinary program in 1993 and started practicing immediately upon graduation. Although originally from California, she decided to pursue her Veterinary degree in Massachusetts, and then later settled with her family in Oregon. She started a small animal practice at her home in Days Creek and five years later moved the practice to its current location in historic Canyonville. Moving the hospital to Canyonville allowed Dr. Tammy to expand her services and provide a cutting edge veterinary hospital for her clients and patients. Veterinary Medicine was a life-long dream for Dr. Tammy and she never wavered from her plan to be a Veterinarian, even though she pursued a career in teaching for several years prior to Veterinary school. In 2019, Dr. Tammy decided to open a second practice in Myrtle Creek in order to serve the growing demand for veterinary care in Douglas county. She has two Children who are both pursuing their own dreams and professions. Her husband Don is the practice manager and holds a business degree from Stanford University. Dr. Tammy has many animals of her own including horses, chickens, many birds, cats, and her best dog friend Sparky. She has devoted her life to the care of her veterinary patients and is a compassionate and caring veterinarian.
