Vets in Richmond

Frank and Renee Skipworth

We are Frank and Renee Skipworth and together we own Skipworth Veterinary Clinic. We have been married since 1989, which was Frank’s second year of vet school at Auburn University. We have two children, Lauren, and Carter. Lauren was born in 1993 and is a graduate of the University of Kentucky. We are very thankful that she taken an interest in the family business and joined our team at the clinic. Carter was born in 1997 and is currently attending Eastern Kentucky University where he is majoring in accounting and political science. He hopes to attend law school after graduation.

As a family, we love to worship at Southland Christian Church, vacation in Hilton Head, SC, and watch ball games together. We are huge Kentucky Wildcats fans!

We practiced for 15 years in a mixed practice and decided to open our own clinic in 2008. With Renee managing the business part, Dr. Frank could focus on meeting the needs of our clients and patients. 2017 is our 25th year practicing veterinary medicine. It also marks the start of our next phase. In the Fall of 2017 we will realize our dream and move our practice to a building that we will own.

We love what we do and could not do it without the support of all our loyal clients. We cannot thank them enough for trusting us with the healthcare needs of their beloved pets. We also could not do it without the dedication of our wonderful staff. They show up every day and work tirelessly to make sure each pet entrusted to our care is treated like a member of our family.
