Dr Robert W Smith MSc DVM


Animals, large or small, gravitate to Dr. Smith; they intuitively sense that he likes and cares about them.  Dogs often run into the exam room to see him and grumpy cats will be purring by the end of an appointment.

Bob was raised in a rural community on the Bruce Peninsula and after high school attended the University of Western Ontario where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and Pharmacology.  He continued his studies at Western earning a Master of Science degree in Pharmacology.  Armed with his new degree he entered the pharmaceutical industry but rapidly realized that it would not provide a fulfilling career.  So Bob returned to school to become a veterinarian, graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1983.  He  then joined Dr. Horner at South Peel and never left.

In the years since his graduation, veterinary medicine has evolved tremendously and Dr. Smith enjoys keeping up with these changes.  Having studied pharmacology at a graduate level he is particularly interested in the medicine side of practice including selecting the safest vaccines, and the most effective drugs for use within the practice.  He has a special interest in pain management.

Bob is married and he and Patricia have two children and two dogs.  Aaron is a commercial pilot while Alison is a veterinary student at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Jenny and Mars are their two exuberant golden retrievers.
