We're Open 7 Days A Week!

As part of our strategic plan to be Lexington and Central Kentucky’s premier veterinary care provider, we realized we would need to greatly expand our service offerings, our team of doctors and staff, our physical location and our business hours to meet the needs of local pet owners. A little less than a year ago, we started building renovations, which will be complete this fall. Then, we hired another veterinarian and a few more veterinary assistants, and opened 7 days a week. We know your pet’s illness doesn’t know a day of the week, and we also know how busy the work week can be and trying to fit in pet medical appointments to a work schedule can be challenging. Additionally, with urgent care services, there are very few choices on Saturdays and Sundays without emergency charges for care. 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. Feedback from our clients has been extremely positive and just know, at Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic, we are continually working to improve our practice to ensure we are your first choice for the best care for your furry loved ones!

Client Testimonials

John & Lynn Maddox

A wise person once told us that “Love does not come in degrees – that there was no such thing as Dog Love or Cat Love, you either love something or you don’t.” As a 30-plus year client of Richmond Road Vet Clinic, it goes without saying their quality of care and wonderful staff (we would adopt Bree as a part of our family), are second to none but what makes them special and separates then from the others is they love our pets like we do! What more could you ask for? Top-notch care with a heart!! We feel blessed to have such a wonderful veterinary clinic to care for our pets that we love so much!

Julie and Larry Woods

Richmond Road Vet Clinic has been there for us since the early 80’s. When someone asks us about veterinary care, we recommend Richmond Road Vet Clinic without hesitation.
Dr. Smith and staff are always available when needed. They are dedicated to the care of our boys (Golden Retrievers) with excellence and compassion. The staff is friendly and passionate about their jobs. Currently, we have three Golden Retrievers and are fortunate to have Dr. Smith caring for our Luke, Doc and Eli. Caring for a senior dog includes anxious moments for their owners. We know they are in good hands and appreciate the time Dr. Smith spends with us explaining conditions and personally following up on how our boys are doing after a visit.
Thank you, Dr. Smith and staff!

Jamie Palumbo

I’ve known Dr. Smith since before he went to Vet School and he has always loved/cared for animals. He knew/took care of my first dog (I consider my dogs my children) throughout his life, was also especially thorough with the examinations and helped me understand any questions I had. During the final stages of having a pet, it is especially emotional and difficult, but Dr. Smith, along with the love, support and comfort that I received from everyone at Richmond Road Veterinary Clinic, was amazing. I eventually adopted two new puppies that I take to RRVC now. Dr. Smith and everyone else at the clinic are more like family than a vet office so I will be going there with my pets (children) that I have throughout my life.
