Dr. Richard E Dunn, DVM

Dr. Dunn is a native Floridian from Daytona Beach, Florida. He graduated from Florida State University with a BS in Biology in 1977, and received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida in 1981. Following graduation he worked in a mixed animal practice in Monroe, NC before returning to Florida to work in a mixed animal practice in Belleview, FL. Dr. Dunn and his wife Diana started Countryside Animal Clinic in 1984 in the old Beverly Hills shopping plaza. The practice grew and they were able to build the current building 10 years later.

Dr. Dunn and Diana have three adult children who grew up with the clinic. They have 3 dogs (Caesar, Cleo & Sophie), two cats (Quasimodo and Moe) and Merlin, a South American Redfoot tortoise.

Dr. Dunn’s hobbies include fishing, reading, exercising and spending time with the family. He has a multitude of fond clinic memories, but some of his favorites are helping animals with unusual problems, like the cow that was shot by a bow and arrow, retrieving a needle from a cat’s stomach non-surgically, reversing a cat in renal failure, helping a dog hit by lightening and treating a traveling circus elephant for pneumonia.
