Meet Dr. Chet

Owner and operator Dade City Animal Clinic has been with this practice for over 38 years. From the age of thirteen, he worked as an assistant to his mentor and former Dade City Animal Clinic owner, Dr. H. R. Smalley. Dr. Chet graduated from Pasco High School in 1974. After attending Pasco-Hernando Community College in 1975, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Sciences in 1977 and Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1982 from the University of Florida, Gainesville. After graduation, he stayed as an intern at the University of Florida in Rural Animal Medicine for one year. In 1983, Dr. Chet reunited with Dr. Smalley at Dade City Animal Clinic as an associate, specializing in large animal medicine. After over thirty years in the same location and upon Dr. Smalley’s retirement, Dr. Chet bought the practice in 1997.

Dr. Chet is a strong supporter of the surrounding communities. He is the Pasco County Fair Veterinarian and a member of the Pasco County Fair Board. Dr. Chet is an annual steer and pig buyer, a Friend of the Florida State 4-H, and a supporter of the local high school’s Future Farmers of America chapters.
