We are losing the best vet Colorado Springs has ever had! 12/28/2010

I went in to get some prescription cat food today and in talking with Dr. Eric Smith at the Park Animal Clinic found out he is retiring!! I felt the tears welling in my eyes as he told me about it. I have known Dr. Smith for over thirty years and was so glad that something (or someone) urged me to go by his Clinic today. He is truly the most gentle, loving, compassionate vet I have ever known. He has taken care of 6 or 7 of my past pets and currently treats my golden retriever and two cats. He is so very gentle when examining them and makes them feel like they are the most adorable pet he has ever seen. He has treated my dogs, cats and even a lop rabbit! There were several times over the years when that heartbreaking decision had to be made; when their quality of life was so diminished, it was doing the loving thing to let them drift into that final sleep. Dr. Smith was always very compassionate, understanding my grief and pain and allowing me to stay with my beloved pet until they took their last breath. I had a golden retriever who, at age 15, was seeing her final good days and drifting into a place that caused both her and I a lot of anguish and we decided it was time to let her go. She could hardly walk and I had to carry her part of the way and put her in the car. But when we got to Dr. Smith's Clinic, she knew where she was and when I opened the door, she jumped out and hurried as fast as she was able to the door, knowing she had come to see her friend and he would fix it. I broke down in tears at the love she had for this extraordinary man. I have enjoyed knowing him all these years, talking with him, appreciating his friendly attitude and his wonderful sense of humor. Colorado Springs will be losing one of the greatest vets we have ever had and I personally will miss him very much. Good luck, Dr. Smith, and enjoy your retirement. Your gentle care and compassion has made life better for a lot of us and especially for our beloved pets. God bless you. more

The best care I have found since leaving a small town 12/3/2009

I took my poor kitty in to Dr. Smith to have her euthanized. He was so compassionate and caring to both me and my poor kitty. Having to make an end of life decision for an animal is one of the hardest things to do. Dr. Smith reassured me that I was making the right decision. I started taking my puppy to see him and am amazed by the quality of care she has received just going in for her vaccinations. Each time she gets a full examination and Dr. Smith walks me through what to expect as she gets older. I would recommend this vet to anyone who is looking for quality care without all the flashy overhead. Pros: Caring and Loving Vet more

Absolutely the best vet in town--in both quality of service and price 3/9/2007

Dr. Smith is, hands down, the very best vet I have ever taken my pets to. He is very knowledgeable and careing. I have never met a vet so interested in providing quality service. He is very affordable too! He cares about animals getting the care they need and charges prices that make that possible. When I took my puppy to him, he charged me $25.00. That included the exam and the shot. Then, when my cat got caught in a trap by a mean person, Dr. Smith kept my cat for three nights, put him under anesthesia, spent over an hour cleaning out the wounds, wrapped him in bandages, and gave me two different kinds of antibiotics. The total charge, $174.00! And I have to take the cat back twice a week for a long time, thoes visits will be free. He even told me to call over the weekend if there were any problems and he would make sure to be avaiable. If I had to pay four times as much as I paid for these two visits, I still would have gotten off less expensive than some. I would pay more than usual for his quality care, the price is just an added bonus. more
