Drs. “Daryl P.” and Lollie Mensik are the owners and veterinarians here at Country Creek Animal Hospital. They have 2 children and a house full of four-legged and furry kiddos. They have 1 dog: Aggie, a Golden Retriever Mix that loves to go to work everyday. They also have 3 cats named Ernie, Kip, and Swiper. On a side note, all the pets in the Mensik Household are rescues!
Dr. Daryl is originally from Houston, TX. He studied Animal Science/Pre-Veterinary Medicine at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX graduating Summa Cum Laude in 2001. He was accepted to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program at Texas A&M University and graduated in 2005. He also attended the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University where he received a Master of Business Administration in 2006.
Prior to opening Country Creek Animal Hospital, Dr. Daryl worked in many different clinic settings. After Vet. school he first went to work as an Equine-Exclusive Veterinarian at Brazos Valley Equine Hospital in Navasota, TX. There he worked on horses from all around the state and beyond. He also had the opportunity to perform and assist with many specialized procedures like arthroscopy, colic surgery, upper airway assessment and surgery, prenatal care of pregnant mares, and neonatal care of newborn foals. After marrying Dr. Lollie, the Mensik Family moved to North Texas and Dr. Daryl joined the team at Sachse Veterinary Hospital as a Mixed Animal Veterinarian. Dr. Daryl then went on to join teams of veterinarians at North Colony Animal Clinic (NCAC) and Allen Veterinary Centre (AVC).
During his time at NCAC and AVC, Dr. Daryl also worked part-time at the Emergency Animal Hospital of Collin County in Plano, TX. In 2009, he joined the staff there as a full-time Emergency and Critical Care Veterinarian. There he worked hand in hand with clients, their family veterinarians, and the veterinary specialists that would sometimes see the pets after Dr. Daryl had treated and stabilized them.
Although Dr. Daryl really enjoyed his time and experience at other veterinary hospitals, he really wanted to accomplish a professional goal that he had set for himself. He wanted to build and own his very own clinic and provide a level of care and service unmatched in the Allen/Fairview/ Plano/ McKinney/Frisco/Propsper areas. That dream finally came true with the opening of Country Creek Animal Hospital in 2011.
Dr. Lollie is originally from St. Louis, MO, but moved around and spent her teenage years in Plano, TX. She went to Texas Wesleyan University on a scholarship to play NCAA basketball. After 2 years she transferred to Texas A&M to finish her Bachelor degree in Biomedical Sciences. After 1 year she was accepted to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program at Texas A&M University and graduated in 2006.
After graduation Dr. Lollie started working at Stonebriar Veterinary Centre in Frisco, TX. She spent 9 1/2 years there, prior to joining her husband at Country Creek Animal Hospital. Her interests include dentistry, surgery, client education, senior care and overall making great relationships with clients and their pets. Dr. Lollie joined the practice full time in 2016.
