REYNOLDS ROAD ANIMAL CLINIC
Dr. Susan Belt
Head Vet Tech/Practice Manager
Dr. Belt grew up in Sheridan, AR (Class of 1983). She attended Louisiana Tech University for 2 years before transferring to Texas A&M University in Galveston where she graduated with B.S. degrees in Marine Biology and Marine Fisheries. She worked in diabetes research at University of Texas Medical Branch and lived at the beach until she decided to grow up and go to vet school. She attended Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine graduating in 1998. After graduation, she worked as an associate in Las Vegas, NV, Little Rock, and Benton before purchasing Reynolds Road Animal Clinic in 2017.
Dr. Belt is married to Dr. Patrick Spivey and they have one daughter, Amelia. They also have a multitude of pets: 4 dogs, 3 cats, a guinea pig, and a Betta fish (that is going to live forever, apparently).
Dr. Belt enjoys the fiber arts-sewing, quilting, knitting, and rug hooking in her time off. She also trains for and runs half marathons because she likes ice cream A LOT.
I am married to a great man that supports me in all that I do. I have an awesome step-daughter that loves animals as much as I do. We have 3 dogs, a Golden Retriever, Boston Terrier and a Chihuahua, and we also have 3 birds, Meyers Parrot, Lilac Crowned Amazon, and an Eclectus.
I have been working with animals for a very long time and really enjoy what I do. I started working at Reynolds Road Animal Clinic in 1998 right out of high school. I fell in love with helping animals then. The love I see from all of our clients for their pets just warms my heart. I treat everyone’s pet as they were my own.
There was a time that I thought I wanted to do something else, so I decided to go to Cosmetology School. During that time I was still working in the Animal field because I was working at the Animal Emergency Clinic. That was a next level kind of learning in animal care. I learned so much in that time at the ER that it just stuck with me. After a few years of being a hair stylist I felt the pull of veterinarian medicine so I was called back to Reynolds Road Animal Clinic. I have been at this clinic for so long that it feels like home for me. I take so much care and have so much love for all of our customers and patients that I just don’t see myself anywhere else.
I have been with RRAC since March of 2018, but I have worked in this field since 2005. I live to go camping and spend time kayaking and hiking with my family whenever I can. I also love to sing and have a good movie marathon, too. I have a ginger haired tabby named Weasley, and I participate in pet foster programs whenever I’m needed. I’m married with one son. I’ve wanted to work with animals since I was 5 years old.
I joined the RRAC team in Augusta of 2018. I have been in the veterinary business for the past three years and I have dreamed of becoming a veterinarian since I was 5 years old. I have 2 fur babies, a lab mix named Cooper and a terrier mix named Remi. I have obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science at Arkansas’s State University. I am currently working towards my doctorate at St. George’s University of Veterinary Medicine. In my free time I enjoys going to concerts, traveling, and catching up on the latest Netflix series.
My name is Sametta. I worked for Jones Wrecker Service for 25 years until it’s closing October 2017. I began working at Reynolds Road Animal Clinic as the receptionist December of 2017. I am very proud of my 3 grown children and enjoy bein “Nana” to my 7 grandchildren. They range in age from 2 to 24 years, so they keep me pretty busy. My animal family consists of Krissy (dachshund/beagle mix), Sooie (rat terrier), and a solid black cat name Dory.
