Dr. Angela Smith

Dr. Angela Smith was born in Toronto and has lived in Mount Albert since 2004.   She obtained her veterinary degree at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 2001 after completing her Bachelors of Science degree. Dr. Smith recently obtained her Masters degree in Public Health at the University of Guelph in 2013.

Dr. Smith’s professional interests include public health, feline medicine, ophthalmology and emergency medicine.  She has worked at the Emergency Clinic of York Region for over 12 years. One of the best things Dr. Smith enjoys about being a vet is the ability to educate her clients about how to reduce the risk of exposure to zoonotic and other infectious diseases that their pets could be exposed to and those which have the potential to affect human health. Providing optimal pet health in turn can contribute to the health and well being of all members of the family. 

When not at the clinic, she enjoys spending time with David and the kids, her cats Sydney and Titus, and family dog  Zoe. She enjoys golf, swimming and gardening. One of her dreams is to have the opportunity to travel to other countries with Veterinarians without Borders where her veterinary medical and public health knowledge can contribute to the overall health of various world communities.

"Quality Control Officer" (Clinic Cat)

Luna

This lovely girl was a stray here in Holt and stole our hearts immediately.  After searching and no one claiming her she has now become the top member of our team!  Luna was a perfect patient and allowed us to do a full check-up, microchipping, dewormed and vaccines.  Once we received the blood results back (which were all normal) the only thing left to do was spay our beauty.  She recovered very well and has settled in nicely.  You will see her roaming around the clinic so do be sure to say Hello to her!
