Our team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. If our standard appointment schedule does not fit yours, just ask and often with advanced notice we can modify our schedule to fit. Sometimes examinations and treatment can be performed at your home. Please ask.
Emergencies are accepted anytime the Animal Clinic of Estill County is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet please call us (606-723-4159) or come to the clinic immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency. Emergencies can be things such as pesticide poisonings, hit by car, chocolate ingestion, or animal attacks. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If you have an emergency situation after regular office hours our answering machine will list Dr. Grimes' emergency contact number as well as numbers for hospitals staffed overnight, weekends and holidays.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, we will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
At the Animal Clinic of Estill County, we can care for many types of pets*:
*If we feel that your pet requires more care than we can provide onsite we will provide referral contacts to get you the best and most appropriate care. Call us for more information.
