At CountryChase Veterinary, caring for pets is our passion

Here, we treat pets like family. We understand how important your companion is to you — because they’re there for you through the thick and thin of life, with a wagging tail or a happy purr, and unconditional love. Our goal is to be your partner in taking care of your pet’s physical and mental wellbeing, so you can enjoy many happy years together. So, whether your pet needs a checkup with a doctor… a caring team and top-notch medical treatments when they’re ill… or, some advice on the best food for them or how to care for them at home — we’re here for you! At CountryChase, we see dogs and cats. And, we’ll strive to make their visit a comfortable and positive experience. Come in and get to know us, and see why both you and your pet will love coming here!

They also accept walk-ins.

    Dr. Grace Gryncewicz

    Dr. Grace Gryncewicz, otherwise known as “Dr. G,” received her Bachelor of Science degree from Florida Southern College in 2015 (Go Mocs!!) She then completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Ross University, followed by a clinical year at the University of Florida in 2019.

    Dr. G appreciates the variety within the field of veterinary medicine, but her passion is preventative care. She also has an interest in dentistry, dermatology, and enjoys the challenge of internal medicine. Dr. G's favorite part of being a general practitioner is creating genuine relationships with her patients and their family members.

    While living on the beautiful island of St. Kitts for veterinary school, Dr G rescued her best friend, the island pup Scout. Once she finished veterinary school, she married her high school sweetheart, and both are Pinellas County locals.

Otherwise, you can find her listening to music, cooking, reading, or spending time with family and friends. She loves the adventure of trying new things!

Happy Pet Parents

  • It is hard to find one word or one reason. The atmosphere there is so welcoming. The care my cats have received has been excellent. The vets there don't have to tell you they care deeply for your pet: it shows big time. The vets are very professional and explain their procedures clearly. I won't take my sweet cats anywhere else.

    Susan H.


  • All of the staff are friendly. The front desk is run better than any veterinary office I have been to.  The vets and techs are great. They don't just try to sell you a lot of services and tests which aren't necessarily needed. They are all obviously pet lovers which remarkably, doesn't seem to be the case at every veterinary office. I like everything about the place.

    Bonnie D.


  • Love this place! It's worth the drive for me. From the second you walk in, it's just friendly, personal and kind. Office is clean, bright and adorable and the Veterinarian I met with was awesome.

    Cherie T.


  • Love love love this office! Always 100% caring and knowledgeable. I never feel like they are rushed they always answer every question. And they care about our animals as if they were their own.
