Hello! I joined the Countryside Team in January of 2017. I graduated from Wichita State University in May 2000 with a Bachelors in Marketing and a Minor in Management. After over 15 years in retail management I decided to make a change to benefit my family, and Countryside was gracious enough to have me! In addition to my Hospital Manager responsibilities I also Ambassador other new managers in the surrounding areas. I have been married to my husband Seth since 2010 and have two amazing children, Emerson (age 12) and Ella (age 6). We also have two dogs, Dexter Manchester, my rescue Dachshund mix and my lab mix Zoey Mary Jane. I am so blessed to get to work with this team every day and am excited to meet you and your pets!

Eugene Hudson

Hi everyone! My name is Eugene Housdon and I’m new to Countryside pet clinic in Andover. I am a Physical Therapist Assistant, with an Associate’s degree in applied science in PTA from Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming. I completed my prerequisite course work here in Kansas at Wichita State University with a focus on Exercise Science.

My past work experiences have been working with humans in Physical Therapy in several specializations including a rehabilitation hospital in Kansas, A community hospital in Nebraska, and out-patient clinics in Wyoming. Veterinarian Rehabilitation is a specialty that I have been interested in for a long time.

I have been married for over 10 years to my lovely wife Merrie, and we have four furry children of our own. A Rough Collie name Tucker, Shetland Sheepdog name Daisy, and two gray tabby litter mates Brennan and Booth. My passion for animals has been with me my entire life along with rehabilitation. I have worked in the medical field for over 8 years and one of my absolute favorite hobbies is working with saltwater aquatics and reefs, along with mountain hiking. I am excited to be part of Countryside’s team and I cannot wait to work with you and your pets in the near future
