DR. RICHARD E. SMITH
Dr. Richard E. Smith is a native of Chicago, Illinois, who has called Florida his home for 43 years. Dr. Smith is a graduate of Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine. He returned to his native
Chicago after graduation for a few years but one vacation in the sunny climes of Florida found him
loading the U-Haul for a migration to the Sunshine State.
Dr. Smith purchased the Hobe Sound Veterinary Clinic in 1980 and practiced there until 2015. Since then he has worked as a relief veterinarian in Martin and Palm Beach Counties. After a while he found he missed the extended relationships one develops with clients and pets and sought to put down roots once more and found a great opportunity at the Cypress Animal Hospital. He looks forward to serving the people and pets of the Jupiter/Tequesta area for years to come.
Dr. Smith just celebrated his 25' anniversary with Patrice, the best wife in the world. He has three grown sons and four wonderful grandchildren.
Dr. Smith is a member of the AVMA, the FVMA, and the TCVMA. He is a past president of the TCVMA and the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce, and serves currently on the Animal Care and Advisory Board of the Martin County Commission.
His hobbies are golf, shooting, reading, gardening, and building model ships.
He is excited to join the terrific staff of Cypress Animal Hospital and to help them help your treasured pets.
