Regina Roach, DVM

Dr. Roach has been with Civic Feline Clinic since July 2011 and grew up right here in Walnut Creek! She attended Texas A&M and graduated in 2011. She loves working with cats because they are unique and she enjoys the challenge of diagnosing and treating their ailments. She thinks the best thing about working at Civic Feline Clinic is the excellent care that has spanned decades possibly from the longevity of its staff members. Also, being able to care for cats throughout their life span from kittens to adults and in to their golden years, getting to know their humans in the process.

Dr. Roach knew from an early age she wanted to become a veterinarian and would often play “zoo” on the stairs of her childhood home. After high school she worked as a kennel technician which cemented her interest in becoming a veterinarian.

In her free time, Dr. Roach enjoys spending time with her husband and son, swimming with the Walnut Creek Masters, playing tennis, traveling and reading. Her fur children consist of one gray tabby, named Dorian, who she acquired as a kitten while she was in vet school.

Anna Smith, DVM

Dr. Smith has been with Civic Feline Clinic since June 2016. She attended UC Davis and graduated in 2010. She loves working with cats because of their unique personalities and quirks. She also appreciates that they do not bark, drool, and jump on her during exams. She thinks the best thing about working at Civic Feline Clinic is the sense of family we have here and being able to practice quality medicine. She also enjoys surgery, dental surgery, and having house cats to interact with all day.

Dr. Smith was 10 years old when she knew she wanted to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Her first word as a baby was “kitty” and it was pretty clear she was destined to work with felines.

In her free time, Dr. Smith enjoys gardening and making beaded jewelry. Her fur children consist of eight cats, four of which were bottle babies she raised herself.
