Meet Our Veterinarians & Staff

Brimfield Veterinary Services is a full-service, walk-in veterinary facility and has been around for over 30 years. We specialize in preventative medicine, dentistry, internal medicine, canine & feline medicine, soft-tissue surgery, and pain management. We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality and standard of care, and always being able to help cats and dogs in a timely manner. We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care, and health-related educational opportunities for our clients. We can operate as urgent care for cats and dogs in the community. We also service and provide care for canine police dogs and other service dogs.

Dr. Janelle Gottuso, DVM

Practice Owner

I am both the owner and head DVM of Brimfield Veterinary Services. I grew up in Hermitage, PA, and have been practicing veterinary medicine for over 8 years and went to undergrad at Penn State University, studying Animal Medical Science in 2010, graduated with honors from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2014, and performed my clinical rotation at Oklahoma State University. I am very passionate about preventative medicine, pain management, and dentistry. I also thoroughly enjoy any soft tissue surgeries.

I live in Tallmadge, OH, with my husband, David Ede, who was born and raised in Tallmadge, OH. We have 3 young children, Elijah, Desmond, and Isadora, and 2 dogs and 2 cats.

It has always been a dream of mine to own my own practice and to provide high-quality pet care to the surrounding areas. I used to commute 45 minutes to work, and now I live less than 10 minutes away. I also go by a few different names, Dr. Janelle, Dr. Gottuso, and Dr. G.
