Dr. Alicia Smith, DVM


Alicia graduated in 2004 from NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She then moved to Tallahassee where she worked in the city's only 24 hour emergency, urgent care and general practice hospital for 9 years, giving her wide experience with all aspects of veterinary medicine including soft tissue surgery, dentistry and internal medicine. She then moved to a general practice in 2012 which allowed her to continue her professional passions but without having to work overnights. She has special interests in feline medicine, soft tissue surgery, dentistry and dermatology. She has two dogs (a retired racing greyhound and a shepherd-mix shelter adoptee) and three cats (2 devon rexes and a cornish rex). When not working, she can be found rehabbing her old house in paint spattered coveralls with plaster in her hair.

Dr. Susanne Szekely, DVM


Farms Veterinary Clinic is thrilled to announce that Dr. Susanne Szekely will be practicing at Farms Veterinary Clinic on a regular basis.

She left the area to obtain her doctorate from Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech in 2009, and decided to move back to the area to complete a rotating surgical/internal medicine internship at VCA South Shore Veterinary Hospital in Weymouth. Dr. Szekely stayed at VCA for additional neurology training before becoming an Emergency and Critical Care veterinarian and on-call surgeon for a local Emergency/Referral hospital in Woburn for over a decade. Deciding to apply her skills to include oral care and surgery, she became a certified Veterinary Dental Practitioner through the International Veterinary Dental Institute in 2022.
