We value our patients and clients and the role we get to play in your pet’s healthcare. This includes helping you deal with emergencies that may occur after hours. We make every effort to be available to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When you call 859-623-0008, Dr. Skipworth or one of his trained staff will call you back as soon as possible. Your pet’s situation will be evaluated and a recommendation for treatment will be made.
Most emergencies can be handled by the team at Skipworth Veterinary Clinic. For those cases that need more intensive care, we partner with two of the most advanced critical care hospitals in Central Kentucky. Bluegrass Veterinary Specialist + Animal Emergency (www.bgvets.com, 859-268-7604) and MedVet Lexington (www.medvetforpets.com, 859-276-2505) are both located a short drive to Lexington and provide around the clock care. If after discussing your case with Dr. Skipworth the decision is made to seek the service of one of these emergency facilities, a referral will be made by us so the transfer to their care will be as smooth as possible for our clients and patients.
