Dr. Cain

Dr. Russell Cain is a native of Jackson, Mississippi. He completed his undergraduate studies at Florida International University in Miami in 2000 and received his doctorate of veterinary medicine from Kansas State University in 2011. Following graduation, he went on to work for a high--volume, no--kill animal shelter in Kansas City. There he was able to hone his surgical skills as well as well as provide as second chance for many homeless, less-fortunate animals. Dr. Cain then moved into private practice with a premier small animal hospital located in Kansas City, MO. This opportunity enabled him to focus on internal as well as preventative medicine. Additionally, Dr. Cain has provided emergency and critical care for several area emergency and referral centers in Kansas City.

Dr. Cain's particular interests lie in emergency medicine/critical care, surgery, internal medicine and pain management.

I’ve been working at Deer Creek Animal Hospital since June of 2015. Since I was little, I’ve always had a passion for making animals feel better and I feel so fortunate to be able to do so now. Since starting at Deer Creek I have been lucky enough to be able to work my way up through multiple positions and learn so much along the way. I have 3 dogs and 2 cats of my own that I love very much. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, being outdoors, and spending time with family & friends.

Dani Smith

Dani Smith - Lead Veterinary Receptionist / Veterinary Assistant

My name is Dani & I’ve been working at Deer Creek Animal Hospital for about a year & a half now. I started off as Receptionist & then I moved to Kennels as I wanted to be more connected with the animals that come into our clinic. Now, I switch between both positions which is the best of both worlds! I absolutely love caring for the pets that come in & out of our clinic & forming relationships with both the pets & the clients. Life is just simply not the same without pets. I have two dogs myself, Cooper & Ellie, who are both rescues. They mean the absolute world to me! Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, staying active, & enjoying time with friends & family.
