Marc Smith, DVM of Natchez Trace Veterinary Services in Nashville & Franklin TN:

If you’re interested in this concept of progressive veterinary medicine and what it means, let me start off by telling you a story.

I was a young veterinarian coming out. I knew what I was doing, strutting my stuff, and I had this tumor in this horse’s eye. And I’d been haggling around with it, spending all kind of money. Doing this, doing that, and nothing seemed to work. And one of my colleagues, who was an older gentleman, he said, “Marc, try some of this in this horse’s eye.”

Well, I didn’t believe him, but I did it because I didn’t really have anything else to do. And guess what? It made the tumor go away. I injected a medicine into the tumor. I took some older gentleman’s knowledge and I put it to use and I injected that tumor and gone. It was gone.

And so that kind of sums up this idea of progressive veterinary medicine. And what it means is, it means taking the old knowledge and mixing it with the new. It means taking the new and mixing it with the old. The Eastern and the Western, in a variety of treatments to ultimately help your pet. But then we take it a step further through this idea of communication, constant support in your decisions about your pets. Peace of mind that you’ve made the right choice. And we all deliver through giving you options so that you feel empowered, in control, so that you can make the best choice for your pet.
