When your pet suddenly becomes ill or injured in an accident, we are here to provide emergency care during our regular business hours.

In emergencies, we ask that you call (if you can do so safely) and let us know that you are on the way to the clinic with your pet. This will allow us to ask you a few pertinent questions about your emergency so that our staff can better prepare for your arrival.

There for you when it counts

During such a stressful time, we want to help you in whatever way we can. We will meet you when you arrive and help transport your pet safely into an exam room. We will ask you to describe symptoms or injuries. And as we evaluate your pet’s illness or injury, we will keep you abreast of the results of our examinations and tests.

We partner with two after-hours emergency vet hospitals

After business hours, we will refer you to two Lexington emergency animal hospitals that we work with on a regular basis. Both offer excellent care and are staffed with veterinarians, veterinary technicians and other support staff. Both are equipped to do tests, examinations, and surgery.

We recommend that you add the contact information for our emergency partners to your cell phone and post it in a prominent place in your home.
