Who We Are
Dr. Carey Keith
Dr. Keith completed her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of British Columbia before moving to Colorado to earn her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University in 2003. Upon graduation, she moved to Vancouver, B.C. to begin her veterinary career. Within a few years, Dr. Keith and her husband started their family and decided that the Okanagan would be an ideal place to raise their children.
Dr. Keith purchased Central Animal Hospital, along with Dr. Smith in 2009. Another dream was realized for them in 2015 when they designed, built and moved in to the home of Central Animal Hospital at 1901 Kalamalka Lake Road. This new, state-of-the-art hospital allows them to grow and build this practice to it’s potential. Special areas of interest to Dr. Keith include oncology, soft-tissue surgery and internal medicine.
At home Dr. Keith enjoys time with her husband, three young children, and her cat Noodles.
Dr. Trinity Smith
Dr. Smith obtained her undergraduate degree UBC in 2000 and went on to complete her doctorate of veterinary medicine at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan. She graduated in 2004 and moved to Boston for an internship in small animal medicine, emergency/critical care and surgery at Angell Animal Medical Centre.
After practicing in Calgary for 2 years she moved to the sunny Okanagan where she currently lives with her husband and two daughters, their dog ‘Bak’, and their cat ‘Mum’. Dr. Smith loves practicing veterinary medicine and her professional interests lie in emergency/critical care, surgery, and ultrasound. She also enjoys working closely with the SPCA to help out those animals who are in need of a loving home.
Dr. Smith looks forward to providing you and your pet with the care and commitment that she feels is the cornerstone of a compassionate and successful veterinary practice.
