Welcome to our 2022 Spotlight Series! 2022 marks the fifth year doing our Spotlight Series. We felt the fifth anniversary would be the perfect time to reintroduce all of our outstanding doctors.
Dr. Carolyn Smith (and Elphaba!)
Hometown: Drexel Hill, PA
College/University/Vet School: University of Delaware, University of Missouri
Areas of Interest: Emergency Medicine, Ophthalmology, and Internal Medicine
What do you love about being an equine vet: I love coming up with creative ways to improve a horse’s quality of life and the human-animal bond. From short term illnesses to more chronic management issues, it’s always rewarding to find solutions to help both a horse and owner.
What is your favorite activity to do outside of work: Riding, hiking with my dog, and baking.
If you could give one piece of advice to horse owners, what would it be: No one likes to think about emergencies, but planning ahead can save so much time and stress. Does your horse have the option to go to the clinic for additional treatment? Do they have a surgical option? Do you have a trailer available or the numbers of local shippers? These answers can change over time, and it may be helpful to reevaluate annually.
At B.W. Furlong & Associates, we are progressive leaders delivering the ultimate in veterinary care to our equine patients and clients in both the hospital and ambulatory setting. We have several associated practices offering exemplary care and services in New Jersey, Florida, and Virginia
