She is an avid runner, dog lover, equestrian and an amazing veterinarian!

Dr. Rese Schmetz​ is originally from Savannah. She received her undergraduate degree from SCAD and Armstrong and her doctorate from University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. She opened the doors of Guyton Animal Hospital in 2014. Her favorite aspect of her job is getting to work on large and small animals - everyday is different in a mixed animal practice! And of course, the reward of nursing a sick pet back to health and getting them home to their family. Her favorite animal to work on is pot-bellied pigs, but she has recently become more fascinated with donkeys! Fun Fact about Dr. Rese, her first career was in art + design! Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her family and her farm!

​The team at Guyton Animal Hospital is passionate about animals and love their jobs because they can give every species the best care possible. Our mission is to deliver the best quality of medicine, while remaining compassionate towards the patients and their owners. Caring for animals is such a rewarding job and we take it seriously. We've found that best way to prevent health issues is through client education and communication.
