Family-owned and Operated Since 1950

Smith Animal Hospital was founded over 65 years ago by Felix Smith Sr., a World War II pilot and member of the first inaugural class of veterinary medicine at the University of Georgia.  Since its founding in 1950, Smith Animal Hospital has prided itself in providing the highest quality of veterinary care for the small town of Perry, GA and the surrounding communities.

After operating the clinic as a solo doctor practice for many years, Felix Sr.’s two sons Ben and Felix Jr. went to the University of Georgia and became veterinarians. Dr. Felix Smith Jr. graduated in 1980 and Dr. Ben Smith graduated in 1985.  Both young doctors returned to Perry to go into business with their father, and are still practicing today.  Since that time, Dr.Robert (Bob) Rinehart joined the practice in 2000.  Dr.Kristen Hamsley and Dr.Haley Hill joined the team in 2017.
