Antelope Valley Veterinary Service from Smith Veterinary Hospital




Smith Veterinary Hospital is built on providing the best care possible with the kindest attitude.  We bring modern medicine to you and your pet with a gentle touch.


We want to provide you with a warm, comfortable atmosphere so during stressful times when your pet is ill, you know you are in place you can trust and feel at home.





Smith Veterinary is a small animal clinic providing both medical and surgical services with a personal touch.  We have a diagnostic blood analyzer, surgery suite, and radiology in-house to provide full care. We work with an off-site laboratory to provide a full range of laboratory options to aid in a complete diagnostic work-up including a board-certified radiologist. When necessary we will refer cases needed more specialized care to specialty practices in the area.


Our doctors and clinical staff are well educated and experienced. We make a conscientious effort to provide continuing education both on and off-site to all our staff to keep us on the cutting edge of medicine and service.


Veterinary Surgery


During our surgeries we monitor blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, EKG, and body temperature with a body system monitoring machine.  We record and print a record of the patient’s stats while under anesthesia.  All surgery patients receive either IV fluids or SC fluids during the procedure as well as pain management control.

Don’t Leave

Home Without It –


Microchip Your Pet!




We are happy to provide Home Again microchips for our patients.  It is a simple, easy procedure to inject the microchip under the skin.  We then help you fill out the paperwork and register your pet in the Home Again database.


Should your pet become lost, Home Again works with you to locate your pet, including sending LOST posters to all local veterinary clinics.






Pet Dentistry


We provide dental services using a Piezo ultrasonic scaler and complete dental machine.  We can do routine extractions with our dentals.  We scale, polish, and seal all the teeth during a dental visit and recommend OraVet tooth sealant for home care use.





When It’s Time To Say, “Goodbye”

There comes a time in all our lives when we must say goodbye to our beloved companions.  At Smith Veterinary we understand this can be one of the most difficult times of your life.  It is important to us to help you through this as easily as possible, by helping you to prepare and make the necessary decisions for the best care of your pet at the end of its life.
