Services

Dr. Smith offers a complete array of orthopedic services for both dogs and cats. Along the Wasatch Front and Back he will travel to your veterinary clinic and perform orthopedic examinations and surgery at the hospital where you and your pet are most comfortable.  If you live outside of his travel area Dr. Smith can see your pet at his facility in Salt Lake City located within Hillside Veterinary Hospital at 2364 E. Ft. Union Blvd.

The services he offers include fracture repair, tendon and ligament replacement and repair, total hip replacement and other hip, knee and joint surgeries. For many joint surgeries Dr. Smith performs arthroscopic surgery which minimizes surgical trauma, reduces post-operative discomfort and speeds recovery. You pet’s pain will be closely monitored and controlled throughout the pre-operative, operative and post-operative period. All surgical patients will receive epidural injections of morphine and are discharged with pain medications to control their discomfort during their recovery at home.

Dr. Smith is available 24/7 to address any questions or concerns you may have during the post-operative recovery process.
