About Us

Advanced Animal Care is a brand new facility serving large and small animals in Douglas, Wyoming; however, M. Dean Smylie, DVM has been practicing veterinary medicine in Douglas since 1990. After 27 years at Smylie Animal Clinic, Dean opened Advanced Animal Care in Douglas in 2017.

At Advanced Animal Care, we provide the highest quality animal care at reasonable prices. We believe when veterinary care becomes cost prohibitive, pets and animals are neglected and suffer needlessly. That’s why we put compassionate veterinary care ahead of profits and, in doing so, insure that all animals receive the treatment they need and deserve.

Our dedicated, caring staff works to make pet care affordable through careful financial management, improving efficiency, and maximizing volume. We take pride in the fact that we are able to provide the highest quality care at a fraction of the price, because we believe the joys and companionship of pet ownership should be available to everyone.

Our vet and staff believe in and abide by the veterinary hippocratic oath.
