Angela Smith, DVM
Chief of Staff
Dr. Angela Smith holds a BS degree in Animal Science from Purdue University and a DVM from Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
She practiced for five years in the Chicago suburbs before moving to California and joining Petaluma Veterinary Hospital in 2001.
Dr. Smith believes strongly in animal rescue. All her dogs have been rescued, and they have taught her a lot about behavior. Pain management and animal behavior are two of her special interests.
She is trained in low-stress animal handling techniques and passes this on to her staff. These techniques lead to a calmer environment when your pet visits our hospital. The result is fewer anxiety triggers and a better experience for everyone - pet, owner, and staff.
Dr. Smith lives in Petaluma with Hope, her rescue Pit Bull. She also has 2 horses, Tristan and Rio, that take up alot of her free time!
Rabid Green Bay Packer fan (because her dad grew up in Wisconsin and forced her to be a Packer fan)
Fabled 4-H Grand Champion Guinea Pig owner at age 11 (she still loves to see the occasional guinea pig patient)
Known as "The Seagull"--she will eat (almost) anything
