Philosophy


Our practice is designed to allow Dr. Smith to spend more time with each patient and their owner. She has found the key to veterinary practice is being thorough. We strive to be attentive to detail, address all of our clients' concerns and questions, and to providing a gentle, stress free approach for the pet.


Practicing Holistic Veterinary Medicine

Dr. Deborah Smith has practiced for 25 years in Southern California cities. She has received additional training  in Feline medicine and Internal Medicine and, for the last 8 years, has pursued Integrative Veterinary Medicine, combining her advanced training in conventional medicine with the Holistic practices of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Dietary Therapy. Dr. Smith believes the Integrative practice gives her patients many more options, especially in the care of chronic disease and even cancer. She also believes many common illnesses in senior and geriatric pets can be reduced or prevented with a holistic nutritional approach.


Training


Dr. Deborah Smith received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1989, followed by an Internship in Medicine and Surgery  in Los Angeles. She has owned or managed three veterinary hospitals and two house call practices in Southern California cities. 

She completed acupuncture training in the International Veterinary Acupuncture (IVAS). She received training in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the Chi Institute in Florida, and in the College of Veterinary Integrative Therapy, Australia.
