her own veterinary practice in Lexington, KY, ultimately moving it to its current location in the Dallas, TX area.
For approximately six years, Dr. Smallwood has been practicing Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and performing acupuncture treatments as an additional or supplemental method of treatment for a variety of conditions in her patients. As the demand for her treatments and the needs of her clients grew, she extended her practice beyond the borders of Kentucky, and began traveling to clients and patients regularly as needed in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area and in Florida. In an effort to met increasing demands from her clients, Dr. Smallwood expanded once again in 2012 and began offering acupuncture treatment to dogs and cats. In 2013, the practice permanently moved to Dallas, TX, but Dr. Smallwood continues to travel frequently to treat her patients in Kentucky, Florida, and now Illinois.
Dr. Smallwood graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX with a B.S. in Animal Science, then again from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003 with a D.V.M. She completed the Chi Institute Acupuncture Program in Reddick, FL, in 2006. She currently holds active veterinary licenses in the states of Kentucky, Texas, Florida, and Illinois.
Dr. Smallwood is a certified Veterinary Acupuncturist by the Chi Institute and the China National Society of Acupuncture.
