Helping our furry friends feel fantastic since 2005.

Welcome to Town and Country East Veterinary Clinic. Here, our team knows that animal health is not just about having a happy dog or cat some of the time: it’s about having a happy cat or dog all of the time. It’s about prolonging the simple joy of being with your noble furry companion! Our mission is to help our patients accomplish these goals in a painless, compassionate, and efficient way.

We are proud to have three of the finest doctors you'll ever find and a dedicated team of support staff all working hard to give the best care possible.


Sue Trinh, D.V.M.

Dr. Sue Trinh, who everyone affectionately calls "Dr. Sue", has been practicing medicine on this corner since 1999.  As clinic owner, Dr. Sue has kept up with the changing attitudes in veterinary medicine and has brought to our clinic Herbal/Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.  She keeps us at the cutting edge of our industry with our new treatment tools such as the Cold Wave Laser, and our Digital X-Ray machine and our brand new Digital Dental X-Ray machine.  She was at the helm of our recent (2010-2011) expansion to our lobby and addition of a new veterinary surgical space/treatment area.  Dr. Sue knows that we have gotten bigger and busier and wants you to know that we have late hours on Monday and Thursday for your veterinary convenience. Dr. Sue has two furry children of her own: Lola, a rottweiler mix who runs the office, and Zoe, a beagle mix that helps run our kennel! 


Caroline Horne, D.V.M.

Dr. Caroline Horne is originally from England, but grew up all over the world.  She was born in Swaziland, Africa where she spent the first five years of her life. After two years back in England her family moved to Indonesia. Her family returned to England for Dr. Horne and her sister to finish high school, after which Dr. Horne moved to Athens, GA. to swim for the University of Georgia swim team on a swimming scholarship.  There she met her husband Wesley.  She attended the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2001. Dr. Horne and her husband Wesley have four children and a boxer mix named Bailey.  We are very pleased to have Dr. Horne as part of our veterinary family, and I'm sure you will be too!


Seth Cohn, D.V.M.

After growing up in Marietta, Dr. Cohn attended The University of Texas in Austin where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Following college, he spent time in Jerusalem, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and finally Columbus, Ohio where he graduated from The Ohio State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. Dr. Cohn's veterinary interests include dentistry, internal medicine, and veterinary dermatology. In his free time, he enjoys gardening, cooking, live music, and exploring Georgia's State Parks. Dr. Cohn likes spending time with his wife Jessie, and his three children, Micah, Tali, and Beatrix. They have three dogs, Laila, Griffin, and Nixa, as well as six chickens that keep them in good supply of fresh eggs. We couldn't be happier for Dr. Cohn to be part of our veterinary family.


Amy Franklin, Lead Technician

Amy has been back in the Town & Country family for two years after leaving to enjoy life in the Big Easy. While in New Orleans, Amy practiced in animal opthamology and emergency care adding much more veterinary knowledge to her now 10 years of animal care experience and expertise. Amy lives with her three dogs Dillon, Harold and Kiwi. She spends her free time pleasure reading and promoting awareness and activism about those suffering from lymphoma and the funding for research to find better treatments.



Philip Simmons, Practice Manager

Philip is spelled, "Dad" by his seven year old daughter, Elisabeth; "Filup" by his eight year old step-son, Hawke; and probably never spelled at all by his 16 year old step-son, Phoenix. Helping these children learn how to spell at all is his lovely pre-wife, Meg, who just so happened to have taken our clinic staff portraits and built this website! Since joining the Town and Country East team in 2014 Philip has been an integral part in helping Dr. Trinh's clinic keep from falling apart at the seams and being sucked into a time vortex from which there is no escape. When he is not tackling the vitally important task of retrieving email attachments, he enjoys reading, crafting music, building furniture, and loving on his two cats, Chuck and Moe. 



Ashley Michels, Lead Client Care Representative

Ashley has worked for us for over 6 years now. She began here as a technician while simultaneously working with Mostly Mutts rescue group. After moving into the reception area she quickly became a clinic favorite and clients just love her! In recognition of her keen work ethic and outstanding job proficiency she was promoted to lead client care representative and has been doing a remarkable job.                     Ashley is the proud owner of an eight year-old Rat Terrier named Sadie, a five year-old American Pit Bull named Tiya, a three year-old German Shepherd named Sheeba and two thirteen year-old cats without tails named Suzie and Patty. In her spare time, Ashley is an avid fiction reader and likes to take long walks with her pack of pooches.
