The staff is very attentive to my dogs needs and thorough with their exam. They provide great recommendations and listen carefully to my concerns addressing everything. Both times I have been, I have felt like my dog was in great hands
Friendly staff. Experienced bunny vet (Dr. Estill). No wait time. Quick checkout. Gentle and attentive to little Theo! He was barely stressed at all. Clean and surprisingly quiet office.
Dr Riney and staff were very kind and considerate. My cat is doing so much better after the treatment she received. I am happy to have found a vet in Lexington. This is because a close friend recommended them and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the service.
We recently moved back to Lexington and are so happy we chose this vet clinic. We are seasoned pet owners and have moved around the country. The professionalism, knowledge, and absolute love they give every single visit is amazing in this fast paced world. They are the absolute BEST!!
Dr. Riney and his staff are the most compassionate Humans! You and your fur babies will be well taken care of here! Plz. don’t retire, Dr. Riney!!
Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I bathe my dog?
If your dog doesn’t have any skin condition, it’s recommended to bathe them every 4-6 weeks. This frequency helps to keep their coat clean and healthy without stripping away natural oils that are essential for their skin and coat health. However, if your dog spends a lot of time outdoors, gets dirty frequently, or has a specific condition that requires more frequent bathing, it’s best to consult with your veterinarian for personalized recommendations. Overbathing your dog can lead to dry skin, irritation, and other issues, so it’s essential to find the right balance for your pet’s individual needs.
