Dr. Amy Smith, DVM
Dr. Amy Smith grew up in southern Indiana surrounded by hog farms. She received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Purdue University in 1999 and continued her education at Purdue to earn her DVM degree in 2003.
After graduation, Dr. Smith worked two years in a mixed animal practice located north of Lebanon, Indiana where she particularly enjoyed goat patients. After the birth of her first child, Dr. Smith decided to look for a practice that would allow her to spend a little more time with her family. The friendly, family-like atmosphere of Franklin Animal Clinic enticed her to uproot and settle in Franklin and she has had no regrets. The progressive, compassionate, patient-centered medicine of FAC allows her to practice in the manner she has always wanted.
Dr. Smith’s professional interests include dentistry, internal medicine and chemotherapy. She has also organized several clinical trials for various medications and enjoys the science involved in this aspect of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Smith met her husband, Zack, in college and married during vet school. She has two beautiful daughters, Emma and Caitlyn. Her non-human family includes two rescued dogs, PJ and Cosmo; one rescued cat; a fish name Bait; and a leopard gecko named Leonard. She enjoys camping and fishing, shuttling her kids around, and teaching Sunday school at her church.
