Dr. Mindy Smith, originally from a small fishing town in Alaska, developed an interest in horses there despite the island having only one pony. She moved to California to pursue her veterinary education, where she graduated magna cum laude from Pacific Union College with a Bachelor’s degree in biology. She then attended University of California, Davis, earning her doctor of veterinary medicine in 2016. While in vet school, she worked as a large animal critical care technician in the teaching hospital, participated in pain management research in horses, and served as president of the student chapters of the AAEP and the Society for Theriogenology. She has since served as the Equine Field Services intern at Colorado State University.
Dr. Smith enjoys general equine practice but has a special passion for sports medicine, rehabilitation and integrative medicine.
