What makes Dr. Smith different among veterinarians?
Dr. Smith says, “Good health is not merely the absence of disease; implicit in good health is functioning at one’s optimum capacity. Proper nutrition is the cornerstone of good health; there is no one-size-fits-all pet diet. I will keep your pet healthier and you more informed about how to care for it naturally and organically.”
