  • Dr.
    Marcus Smith
    ( Veterinarian & Owner )

    I am a New Jersey native, but have been down south for over 18 years. While growing up in New Jersey I was involved in the family business of horse racing. My involvement in the daily care of horses and exposure to the variety of medical needs required by the horses kickstarted pursuit of becoming a veterinarian.

    My first stop down south was for college at Clemson University. I received a bachelors of science degree in animal sciences. After achieving my undergraduate degree, I was headed to Alabama to attend Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine. I was extremely honored to be accepted into the program as 1 of the 10 out of state students.

  • Dr.
    Dianne Dawkins
    ( Veterinarian )

    I have wanted to be a veterinarian since I was five years old. After attending Berry College for 3 years, I was accepted into UGA's Vet School Class of 1991. I met some fo my lifelong friends at UGA and continue to enjoy these relationships today.

    My favorite thing about being a veterinarian is the many relationships I have found with so many clients and the bonds I continue to have with their pets. My goal as a veterinarian is to provide the best medicine and watch these patients grow in a healthy way. I enjoy constantly learning and growing throughout my career. My favorite pets are the senior pets, they have such sweet spirits and character.
