Dr. Holly Smith began her veterinary career as a prosecuting attorney. For 15 years, her job was to prosecute individuals who had broken the law; however, her dream of becoming a veterinarian was never far from her mind. As a result, she left law and returned to school to follow her true calling. After graduating from vet school, she worked for two years as an intern first at Mississippi State University then in Oklahoma, specializing in equine medicine and surgery. After her internship, she joined a mixed animal practice in Ontario, where she refined her large animal skills and enjoyed Canadian living for over 7 years.
Although Dr. Smith has focused on equine medicine, lameness, and dentistry, she enjoys all aspects of large animal medicine. She especially enjoys bovine and small ruminant medicine and surgery.
Her outside interests include snow skiing, water skiing, quilting and reading. She has also enjoyed the occasional game of pickleball. Her seven animals (3 dogs and 4 cats) also occupy much of her time and energy.
