Dr. Sepp



Dr. Sepp was born and raised in New York. He went to college at Cornell University, where he earned his BS in Animal Science. After working at the SPCA of Westchester for a year, Dr. Sepp decided to return to his Alma mater, where he received his DVM. Wanting to see veterinary medicine from a different part of the country, Dr. Sepp spent a year doing his rotating small animal medicine and surgery internship at Florida Veterinary Specialists in Tampa Bay. Although he spent the next few years in general practice in New York, Dr. Sepp and his cat, Sparrow, heard adventure calling their names. They moved to the city by the bay, San Francisco, where he was a general practitioner for 4 years.

In his spare time, Doc Sepp recently took up classical guitar lessons and Tai Chi meditation. He’s been a skier since his dad taught him at 4 years old. His professional interests include pain management, behavior and nutrition. He loves working with everyone at Arvada Veterinary Hospital, and is proud to be a Coloradan!

Dr. Smith



Dr. Smith grew up in New England and eventually graduated from The University of Rhode Island with a degree in Animal Science. He completed his graduate coursework in Microbiology at Colorado State University and then joined the department as a research associate. His objective in research was to design experiments that would help identify novel antibiotics against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB), and his protocols are still in use by the department today. After earning his DVM at The Ohio State University, Dr. Smith moved back to Colorado in 2021. His professional interests include radiology, pathology, and anything micro! Outside of medicine, Dr. Smith has played guitar most of his life and is an avid snowboarder and all-around big mountain adventurer.
