About us

Meet Dr. Marc Smith

Dr Smith1 1

For starters, my main craft is practicing individualized, innovative veterinary medicine to solve problems, deliver results and make your pet feel better.

I am a progressive veterinarian continually searching for the best way to treat your pets.

But here’s the thing, veterinary medicine faces two almost insurmountable problems: standardization and excessive pharmaceuticals.

When I say standardization, I am referring to the fact that the majority of treatment and prevention strategies follow the book. They are the same no matter what veterinarian you choose.

By too many pharmaceuticals, what I mean is that throwing a myriad of drugs at the problem seldom works and can even harm your pet…

I can't even begin to say how grateful I am for Natchez Trace Veterinary Services. They have been so helpful and kind. My dog needed a huge surgery done, so I took him to Natchez Trace for a 2nd opinion. They looked at my dog for that 2nd opinion and weren't pushy at all. The Dr. even said since he isn't board certified on that type of surgery (but he does it all the time) he could refer me to someone else if I wasn't comfortable with him performing it. They saved me over $1000 by taking him to see them instead of the 1st Dr.

Dr. Marc is excellent, I live in Sarasota now but used him and have friends who continue to use his services in Nashville. The man is brilliant, kind and trustworthy. And if you "baby" your pets as much as I do, please know he is someone you can trust.

I walked in this morning with our new puppy, thinking my wife made an appointment at this clinic (I was wrong) and unsure what the visit was about. Marc and his staff were incredible. Through all the confusion, me not really knowing why we needed a vet visit, and not being a client.... they set us up for future visits and were willing to give our dog a quick consult right then and there. Could not have made it more comfortable for me! Thanks Marc!
