We’re thrilled to announce our resumption of surgery services lead by Dr. Holly Smith, DVM. Dr. Smith graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1995 and has been with VESHW three years. Her areas of focus will include orthopedic and soft tissue surgery as well as post-surgical rehabilitation. Dr. Smith is a member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management, carrying the designation of Certified Veterinary Pain Practitioner, CVPP. She is a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist, CCRT.  She is certified in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture, cVMA, and is also a DOC instructor at the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians course. Dr. Smith integrates the modalities of traditional medicine and pharmacology, acupuncture, massage, laser, rehabilitation, and surgery-both soft tissue and orthopedic, as indicated with a caring touch, to aid each individual patient along the journey of achieving the best level of comfort and mobility possible.

“The one thing that makes or breaks surgery is the aftercare. We specialize in that." 

We have highly trained staff on duty 24 hours/day so and this allows us to provide the very best patient care post-operatively. Our pain management protocols ensure that our patients are as comfortable as possible while our rehabilitation works hard to get our patients back on their feet.
