Dr. John Smets

"Becoming a vet was my childhood dream." 

The practice was founded by veterinarian and surgeon John smets. John found his passion for animals from an early age. His grandfather took him to the stables when foals were born. That is where the passion for animals and the fascination for veterinary medicine began.

John graduated at Ghent University in 2004. After graduating, John started working in the practice of Veterinarian Dr. Bastien until December 2008. From 2009 to 2016 he was responsible veterinarian for the Prince Laurent Foundation. With great pleasure John traveled to Spain to operate greyhounds at the Las Nieves shelter for the organization “Greyhounds in Nood”.    

He invests in projects that highlight the relationship between people and their pets and that is why he is very happy to support the Villa Samson project.

During his career, John is specialized more and more in Surgery. Both soft tissue surgery and orthopedics are great passions of him. He attended the CES, Traumatologie osteo-articular et orthopédie animales in France and is a member of SAVAB and of the Department of Soft Tissue Surgery and the Department of Orthopedics (FOSSA).
