April Smith


Hi, my name’s April and I’m a Vet Hospital Receptionist here at Pawsh Place. I live in Esparto, on 10 acres with my wonderful husband and son. I’ve had too many animals to count over the years but I currently just have two dogs, four cats (2 are barn kitties!) and 11 Alpacas… Yep, Alpacas!

I’ve worked my entire life in the Veterinary Industry, 25 years as a Vet Assistant (I loved assisting with pet dental procedures!) or in Reception. I’ve always loved animals. When I was in the 3rd grade, I brought home a stray Collie and begged my mother to allow us to keep him. After trying to find his owner first, she finally agreed we could give him a home! I remember always having multiple pets while growing up, they made our family complete. As a teenager, I fell in love with horses. A friend of mine had a stable and I remember spending all my spare time there, whenever possible. I learned how to ride, train and show horses in their arena, my favorite being an ex-race horse named Ms. Bar Roni. Most of the time we referred to her as Macaroni or Ms. Mac for short. I will always love horses, some of my fondest teenage memories is of training and showing them.

I enjoy working at Pawsh! I appreciate our pet care philosophies and love that we offer such great values to the pet community. I work with an amazing team of professionals who come to work every day committed to giving your pet the best, quality care possible. I’m proud to work here and look forward to giving you and your fur-babies a great customer experience the next time you visit! Hope to see you soon…
