Our highly skilled and dedicated veterinarians perform weekly volunteer work through our relationship with the Animal Protection League.
Aaron Smiley, DVM — Chief of Staff
Dr. Smiley, our Chief of Staff, has been practicing here since June of 2010. Hailing from a farm in East Central Illinois, he achieved his DVM designation from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, graduating in 2007. Dr. Smiley started his veterinary career in the Western suburbs of Chicago in an exclusively equine practice. From there he took a position at a mixed animal clinic in Goshen, Indiana before settling here at Devonshire Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Smiley welcomes new patients with his kind-hearted, charismatic nature and he enjoys the wonderful bonds he has formed with his returning clients. We are delighted to have such a hard-working and talented doctor on our staff!
Dr. Smiley's medical interests include orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. When he is not at the clinic, he keeps himself busy teaching a veterinary technician course at Harrison College and also volunteers his time doing veterinary work for the Animal Protection League. He enjoys reading on his days off and loves spending as much time as he can with his wife, Kristin, and their three beautiful little girls. The four-legged members of his family include a dog, Elphie, and a cat, Gus Gus.
Sara Blasdel, DVM
Dr. Blasdel joined Devonshire Veterinary Clinic in June 2014. An Indiana native, she grew up in Indianapolis and now lives in Lafayette. Dr. Blasdel graduated from Purdue University in 2014, earning both an undergraduate degree as well as a DVM degree. She loves all areas of veterinary medicine, but has a particular interest in preventive care, surgery and theriogenology.
When not at work, Dr. Blasdel enjoys attending local festivals, gardening and working outside, recreational running, and rooting for her favorite Indiana sports teams! Her household includes a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever named Jackson, a 5-year-old Weimereiner named Lu Lu, and a 3-year-old long-haired calico cat named Carlee.
