Jim Herrmann is a veterinarian and co owner of Countryside Animal Hospital. He joined the US Army out of high school as a way to seek adventure and save money for college. It seems he found that adventure during six years of active duty on the bomb squad! Upon his honorable discharge he attended Colorado State University. Graduating in 1996 with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, he left his native Colorado and settled in New Hampshire. Dr Herrmann recognizes that every animal and every family has unique needs and goals. By striving to get to know his patients and their families from infancy through their golden years, he is better able to meet their individual needs. This life long relationship reflects the bond he cherishes.
Dr Herrmann has a peculiar love for scent hounds which has manifested itself in sharing his life with two crazy coonhounds, Susie and Claire. Currently without a cat, he is constantly contriving to convince his wife that they should bring another furry feline home.
Dr. Garland graduated from Colorado State University in 1996 after a first career as an analytical chemist. She is so thankful that she made that change! It has given her the opportunity to share the lives of her patients, which has been much more rewarding. She is particularly interested in shepherding her patients and their owners through the senior and geriatric years. In her spare time, she likes spending time with her four dogs and husband, and mostly quiet activities like reading and knitting. She also enjoys spending time with and assisting her parents and uncle, who moved here in 2012.
