Years in Practice: Since 2013 Brittany joined the clinic in September 2013. She has had animals all of her life, from hamsters and rabbits to cows and horses. She always had a dog in her life, as well. Brittany knew as a seven year old child that she wanted to grow up and help animals. She has lived on a farm since she was ten years old. Being around animals is where Brittany feels most at peace and at home.
Madison grew up in Union County and went on to graduate from UF with a bachelor of science degree, specializing in Animal Sciences. Following graduation, she started working at a local veterinary clinic as a receptionist before becoming a technician. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time wih her animals which consist of 6 cats, 4 dogs, 10 chickens, a turkey, and a pig.
Years in Practice: Since 2021 Taylor started working here in 2021 and is currently a high school student. She is an active member of the FFA and shows cows and hogs. When asking why she loves working here she said, “I love Town & Country Vet Clinic because it’s a great work environment and everyone works as a team. There is nothing better! I love helping animals and learning new things about animal care.”
Hey! My name is Brenna, I am 19 years old, and I’ve been a vet tech for about 3 years now. I have always grown up around animals, both large and small. I compete in barrel races, I used to jump as well. I have a cattle business, and I breed both angus and brahman cows! When I was in middle school and high school, I showed heifers, steers, and pigs in the Putnam County Fair. I also played travel softball and volleyball for the school. My mom was a vet tech for years, and growing up around animals my whole life, I knew it was what I wanted to do!
Years in Practice: Since 2021
Originally from Columbia, Gladys loves to spend time with her fur babies Cookie and Bella when she’s not helping out at Town and Country Vet Clinic. She loves to cook and has a heart of gold.
Our Clinic Mascot
Mega came to the clinic back in 2013 as a kitten who was very, very sick. He was able to pull through his sickness, and in the meantime, won over the hearts of everyone here at Town & Country. He was born with some minor health issues that affect his vision, so he doesn’t see well at all, but somehow has managed to map out the clinic and can find his way around pretty well.
He was also very comforting to us when we lost our first (and, at that time, only) clinic cat “Ilean”. Ilean had been around for almost 13 years when she passed away just recently from Feline Pancreatitis. Mega helped us cope with our loss and has been, once again, emblazoned in our hearts as one of ours.
You may catch glimpses of him when you visit the clinic, although we keep him in our “cat ward” during appointments because he will wander up to any animal that comes in, whether they are friendly or not. If you’d like to meet him, just ask us. He loves meeting new people.
