Dr. Ed Smith opened the original Smith Veterinary Hospital on January 1st, 1946, in its original location on Pen Road, about 3/4 of a mile northwest of the current location. At the time, it was on the very outskirts of Santa Fe; today, it's in the middle of the St. Francis Drive and Cerrillos Road intersection- one of the busiest in the city!
The Medical Center for Cats
Our philosophy at Smith Veterinary Hospital has always been to offer the best quality of care to our clients and their pets. The understanding that cats are very different in their anatomy and physiology and in their needs and behavior patterns led us to build a new facility devoted to feline medicine. The Medical Center for Cats was designed to accommodate the special requirements of our feline patients while providing state-of-the-art care. We now provide an entirely separate place where cats and their owners are able to relax without being exposed to the noise and stress associated with sharing a common space with dogs.
Meet the Team
Our 17 veterinarians and highly trained staff offer your pet the highest quality in medical, surgical, and diagnostic care. We perform elective and emergency surgeries, pet dentistry, and provide a full range of preventive care treatments should your pet need vaccinations or parasite prevention. We also offer acupuncture, a wide variety of prescription pet foods, and boarding facilities for cats.Learn More
