We're Open 7 Days A Week.

We are open to serve Lexington and Central Kentucky dog and cat owners 7 days a week because your pet’s illness doesn’t know a day of the week. We also recognize that fitting pet medical appointments into a work schedule can be challenging. Plus, we firmly believe that in an urgent care situation, the best veterinarian to care for your dog or cat is the primary vet who is familiar with you, your pet, and their specific medical condition/background.

At Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic, we remain committed to continually improving our practice to ensure we are your first choice for the best care for your furry loved ones.
