Dr Elizabeth Smith

Veterinary Surgeon and Practice Owner


Read Dr Elizabeth Smith bio

I graduated for the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2013 and have since worked in various practices in Kent. After graduation I worked in mixed practice for the first year and then decided to focus purely on small animal work. This has included some charity work, more recently at the Lord Whisky Animal Sanctuary in Stelling Minnis.

Clinical Interests

I have a keen interest in Feline Medicine and Surgery and I am currently studying for a Certificate in Feline Practice. I am also particularly interested in care of geriatric animals with chronic conditions and in Feline Cardiology.

Personal Hobbies and Interests

At home I have 6 rescue cats with various ailments that call on me for their every whim. I also have two rescue horses that live in Wootton. When not spending time with the various animals I enjoy reading, I sing in Barham Church choir and I am always up for a new challenge, from cider making to kite surfing.

Are they local

I have lived in Kent all my life. I was born and grew up in Folkestone and have since lived in various parts of Kent. Currently I live in Hythe.

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated as a vet from Glasgow University 15 years ago, having previously completed a degree in Animal Science.

My career began as a mixed vet in rural practices caring for both large and small animals.

In 2015 I gave up the wellies to focus on small animal medicine and surgery. I undertook a role as Lead Vet in a charity practice where I was involved with clinical governance and supporting other vets as well as clinical duties.


I love being a vet. I like meeting pets and their owners and really enjoy general surgery.  I have a particular interest in wound management and skin reconstructive surgery.


When not at work I am kept busy looking after my family, including a bouncy 15 month old Husky/German shepherd pup who loves a muddy woodland walk.

I also enjoy listening to music, aerobics, baking, gardening and DIY/crafts.


Originally from the midlands, I moved to settle in the Canterbury region in 2011.  We fell in love with Whitstable soon after moving to Kent and love spending time at the beach and visiting the many dog-friendly cafes.

Clinical back ground

I have been in practice nursing for 14 years and have worked in various practices in Kent, most recently I was head nurse in a small animal practice in Ashford Kent.  I have also recently done some nursing work at the charity, Lord Whisky Animal Sanctuary in Stelling Minnis.

Clinical interests

I have a keen interest in medical cases, nursing all animals in the hospital. I also have an interest in feline cardiology due to one of my own cats being diagnosed with a heart condition 6 years ago. Something I wish to pursue more and further my training in is canine and feline behaviour.

Personal hobbies and interests

I have a 10 year old son who is very animal orientated, at home we have 2 dogs, 4 cats 3 of which are rescues, 4 guinea pigs, a hamster and fish. I also have a rescue horse who is kept in Wootton near Canterbury. When not spending time with the animals, my son and I enjoy watching movies together and playing board games.

Are they local

I have lived in Kent all my life, I grew up in Tunbridge Wells but for the last 11 years I  have lived in Ashford.

Clinical Background

I got into the veterinary industry in 2017 when I started a career at PDSA in Margate as an apprentice Veterinary Care Assistant. This role gave me valuable experience due to it being a charity vets, and made me want to pursue my career further to start studying as a Student Veterinary Nurse.

Clinical Interests

I enjoy looking after animals of all shapes, sizes and breeds and look forward to meeting new clients that step foot through the door! I am particularly looking forward to training to be a veterinary nurse and developing my skills.

Personal hobbies and interests

Outside of work, I enjoy walking my Westie dog, Archie along the beach. Spending time with my partner watching our favourite television shows and have developed a love of cooking!
