We are a 24 hour, AAHA hospital (for 40 years) of exceptional client based veterinary care for both emergencies and wellness. We have always striven to be the best client and community centered practice and provide mentoring for a very high case load of complicated and challenging medicine and surgery cases. We have 14 doctors for 2 locations who work 1-3 shifts per week. Our second location in Fern Creek is highly skilled in low stress pet care. Both hospital provide wellness care (Vaccine, spay/neuter, dentistry) so we have long term clients who love us and we get regular doses of puppy breath. New graduates who join our practice receive exceptional mentoring and are never alone with cases so we routinely view each others radiographs, lab resuls and work as a team for the best patient outcome.
We have been working for our community 24 hours for the past 40 years and we have 1-4 doctors on premises at all times and technicians/receptionists sufficient to work as a team. We use Cornerstone PMR Medical records, digital radiology, including dental, complete on site lab and reference lab. We have large Snyder oxygen cages, endoscopy both flexible and rigid. We require continuing education for all our staff and have an excellent, positive staff culture which is extremely important to all of us. Currently we have 8,000 sq ft of space and are building a larger facility that will duble our working space, to be completed by spring 2022.
We are very experienced working with veterinary students and start off with OSHA training, then shadowing each of our doctors to acquire the best experience in Internal medicine diagnostics and surgery. We have two OSU veterinary graduates and others from Auburn, Purdue, Colorado, Illinois, LSU, Penn. This gives us a very wide range of expert opinions from all over veterinary medicine. Students can pick their own hours but we are busiest evenings and weekends since that is prime time for emergencies of all types. We perform a lot of exploratories for GI FB's, C-sections, spleenectomies, GDV's and of course, lacerations, bite wounds, often very severe. Louisville has excellent boarded surgeons that we can refer very difficult cases
We offer a two bedroom house very close to both practices. We have a very low $450 per month rest which covers internet, water, electric, garbage, etc. We do not have a fenced in yard so cannot allow pets to be brought to the housing.
