Meet Our Team

  • Scott DeLong

    Scott DeLong graduated from the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. Since graduation, he has practiced medicine in Georgia, beginning at Butler Creek Animal Hospital in Kennesaw, and later with its sister clinic, Cedarcrest Animal Hospital, in Acworth. In 2010, he chose to open Chestnut Mountain Animal Hospital in Flowery Branch because he wanted to live closer to family in the nearby Gainesville and Watkinsville areas. Dr. DeLong is passionate about animals, and strives to bring the best and most compassionate veterinary care to his patients and their families.

    Dr. DeLong grew up in Watkinsville, graduating from Oconee County High School. He currently resides in Gainesville. His wife, Charlotte is a Ballet Instructor and Co-Artistic Director with the Gainesville Ballet Company.  They have three children and two dogs.

  • Matt

    Matt has been working with animals for the last 15 years. He might be biologically 33 years old, but his knees and back are 87! He has always wanted to work with animals since he was a young lad and switched from wanting to be a veterinarian to a technician when he found out he would have to go to school for at least 8 years….gross! He was fortunate to work with Dr. Scott DeLong 12 years ago and is very happy to be working with him again!

    Currently, Matt doesn’t have any animals but plans to adopt a cat and a chihuahua in his future.
    In his free time, Matt likes to play video games, read, bike, and watch John Wick movies over and over again!

  • Jessica

    Jessica has been in the vet industry for 8 years! Her love of animals lead her to perusing a career in veterinary medicine, which makes sense….animals are pretty great! As a receptionist, she works hard to make sure clients and patients are taken care of.

    Jessica and her husband share their home with 3 beautiful puppers. There’s Lily, and there's also Lily, because who has time to come up with new names. They also have Brady, because having another dog named Lily would have been to much…..although they could have been called a Lily bouquet.
    When not working at her favorite job ever, Jessica likes quilting, crafting, crafting quilts, quilting crafts, and all things creative.

  • Annie

    Annie started her life in vet medicine at the tender age of 16 when she was offered a Kennel tech position. She proceeded to see how much work went into becoming a technician and decided this was the career she wanted to pursue. She has a love for all fur babies big and small (special shout out to all the Golden Retrievers! BOW WOW!)

    Annie was adopted by her cat Debs (Deborah when she is in trouble, which is like 90 % of the time) 2 years ago. According to Debs, Annie hasn’t had a bad day since! 
    Her hobbies include Kayaking, working out, and working out her mind by binging tv and/or movies. She also loves to travel, but who has time for that.

  • Meadow
    Veterinary Assistant

    Meadow has been working with animals for the last 3 years and has loved every minute of it! She is currently enrolled at the University of North Georgia and is pursuing a degree in criminal justice to become a crime scene investigator. She hopes to start her own division, specifically tailored to pets who claim to not get enough treats but isn’t sure there is enough of a market for it.
    She has 2 wonderful cats that are her pride and joy!

    Meadow’s hobbies include golfing and going to the gym…. that’s it….

  • Savannah
    Veterinary Assistant

    Savannah has been working with animals since 2015. She has been fascinated with all things animal related since she was a young girl, and it has been her dream to work in the veterinary field.  She has a passion for working with rescues and wants to one day start a rescue group of her own.
    She has one dog named Charlotte Rose, a Catahoula, that she loves with all her heart. She also claims her boyfriends’ dogs and keeps him around so she can continue to love them!

    Savannah's hobbies include: Barrel racing, softball, working out, watching her dad race, and shopping for all things cow print!

  • Jessica
    Veterinary Assistant

    Jessica has been working with animal anywhere from 3 to 4 years, honestly time flies when you’re working your dream job! Her favorite part of her job is the bond she is able to form with the patients under her care.

    Jessica is the proud mother of a sassy queen named Coco Latte who knows that she is the center of Jessica’s world.

    In her spare time, Jessica likes to take Coco for walks,  spend time with friends and family (but mostly Coco), watch Coco eat, and take Coco to parks to frolic.

  • Lily
    Veterinary Assistant/Receptionist

    Lily started volunteering at the Humane Society of North East Georgia in 2018 while still in high school and she hasn’t stopped since! She is currently taking intermittent courses at the University of North Georgia in the hopes of one day becoming a veterinarian.

    Pitbull’s have a very special place in her heart, and she loves spending time with her own Pitty, Emily.

    For fun, Lily has said she likes to sky dive every other weekend, save fish from drowning, and walk her pet snake, SSSSSSTUART. When not living life to the extreme, she can be found spending time with her friends and family.                              

  • Allison

    Allison has been a GROOMING WIZARD EXTRODINAR (her description, not mine) for over 16 years. She provides excellent care and attention to all fur babies that come to her for their haircuts, and she truly makes it a spa day!

    Allison is a person in it for the long haul, she has been happily married to her husband for 12 years! They have 2 human kids (Jaxon and Tatum) and 4 canine kids (Eirinn, Bevinn, Min and Dublin) and we all know who the favorites are!

    When not at work, Allison likes to spend as much time possible outdoors. She can typically be found outside enjoying a refreshing drink on a sunny porch (even in winter).

  • Tiffany
