Dr. Tom Del Pico

A Missouri native, Dr. Del Pico grew up around animals, tending to the many chores at his parents’ horse stable. As a young student, he volunteered at the St Louis Zoo and many of the local veterinary hospitals.  He attended The University of Missouri - Columbia as both an undergraduate and as a veterinary student. Immediately following his graduation in 1983, he joined Dr. Bill Lowrey at Smithville Animal Hospital as an associate.

Dr. Tom took over the clinic in 1983, and is now the current owner of SAH. With 32 years experience, Dr. Del Pico is skilled in all aspects of general veterinary medicine, but he particularly enjoys surgery (including orthopedics and ACL reconstruction) and solving tough health cases.

Dr. Del Pico lives in the Smithville area with his wife, Denise, and sons, Clayton and Anthony.  The family pets include a horse (Bear), a dog (Napa) and two cats (Fez and Kevin). When not practicing medicine, Dr. Del Pico enjoys bike riding, woodworking and gardening.
