DeWayne Weaver, DVM


Dr. Weaver has been practicing medicine for over 20 years. Owner of Green Camp Veterinary Clinic, LLC since 1999, he purchased Southgate Veterinary Clinic in May 2017 from Dr. Matt Verbsky. He practices small animal medicine and surgery at both locations and large animal medicine and surgery (primarily cattle, goats, and sheep) out of the Green Camp location.

Growing up in a rural setting on a dairy farm near Kenton, Dr. Weaver developed a passion for all types of animals. This is what has drawn him back to the area of Green Camp and now at his new venture in Bellefontaine. He enjoys spending his free time with his wife, Melissa, their six children, and their many pets.

Cathy Zilles


Cathy Zilles has been with Southgate since 2006. One of her biggest joys is spending time with her four grandchildren, which keeps her pretty busy. If she is not with them she enjoys hiking, kayaking, fishing, biking, and anything outdoors in the Summer, because she hibernates in the Winter.

Donna Stevenson

Receptionist/Office Manager

Donna has been with Southgate since 2018. One of my favorite parts of my job is working with all the fur babies. I love when they walk through the door and give kisses or make it known they have arrived. Every pet has its own personality and getting to know each one is always a neat experience.

My husband is Rich and we have two sons Mason and Garrett. I am truly blessed that my family loves animals too. We have 6 dogs: Jayson, Kody, Develyn, Gabby, Dalton, and Knox. We have 7 cats: Sheldon, Eclipse, Ellie May, Buddy, Morgan, Growler, and Julia. We also have 2 pygmy goats Tilly and Ollie, 2 Turkeys Gretel and Spots, and a few chickens. I enjoy being with my animals and taking them to different places with me. When I am not at work I love being outside hiking, kayaking, camping, and doing different crafting projects.

Lindsey Clute


I have an Associate in Science from Vincennes University. I worked with animals off and on through school for 5 years and I’m now the second receptionist at Southgate Vet Clinic. I like being outside kayaking and mushroom hunting.

Andrea Smith

Registered Veterinary Technician

Andrea began her journey with the Southgate team in September of 2020. She graduated from technician school in 2013 and started out in ER medicine, then transferred into shelter medicine and 4.5 years ago she made the move to general practice. Her favorite part of her job is surgery. Getting to meet and learn about our patients that come in for appointments is another favorite part of her job. Schnauzers will always hold a special place in her heart and always makes her day when one comes in to visit. She currently has a human kiddo, a fur baby kitty, and a dog named Hairy. When she isn’t working she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Some other things she enjoys are hiking, antiquing, and exploring new places in Ohio.

She grew up in West Liberty but currently lives in Urbana with her boyfriend Thad and spoiled Pit Bull Karma. She has always had a love for animals, but it was the day she got karma that she knew this is what she wanted to be doing. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family.
