EXCELLENT STAFF & EXPERIENCE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Long story short I took my cat here after terrible experiences at 2 other vets. (1 did nothing except pump her full of very strong potentially dangerous antibiotic that she did NOT need; the other diagnosed her w/ enlarged heart, wanted to charge absorbent fees for BASIC blood work & then put her on 2 daily meds because he acted as if she could die any moment even though she has NO symptoms of active CHF). DHC got me in immediately next morning. Dr. Turns did THOROUGH exam, explained everything in detail (including the fact that x-rays from prev. vet were basically useless concerning her heart) & quoted pricing beforehand. Did detailed blood work & urinalysis. Found heart murmur & that she's a little over-weight (possibly stress related due to recent food allergy that's already been addressed) but ALL other tests were normal (INCLUDING heart enzymes) & advised me she needs reg. check-ups & if future tests are abnormal THEN we would go from there. She potentially can live a long normal life! Fair pricing on all testing. They even adjusted bill no questions asked after Dr. accidentally quoted me incorrect price for tapeworm meds. I spent hrs. researching online beforehand & they did EXACTLY what was needed (no more, no less). Thank you DHC for being professional, caring & knowledgeable!

A great clinic. Very gentle with the clients. The fees are about what you would pay elsewhere, and Dr. Grimes clipped my dog's nails in about 20 seconds, no mistakes, no fear on my dog's part.They board small dogs if you are a client. The charge is 12 per day. However, they do not have dog runs, so they stay in cages except for going out three times a day.Dr. Grimes told me he would not let a dog stay for over 7 days because they do not have a way to exercise them. I boarded my dog there twice for a few days and he was well treated.I can't say enough good things about Grimes and Wood Animal Clinic!Easy to find. at the Poplar Level Rd exit off the Watterson, make a left, and a minute down on the left is a blue roofed building with a big sign that says "ANIMAL CLINIC"Nothing fancy, they do not groom-and I wish they did because they would not hire a rough groomer-but the medical care is wonderful and the wait time is short.

Dr. Graehler and Dr. Cummings are the best! Their bedside manner was awesome, and they really brought relief to me very quickly. We were referred by Ft. Knox Vet Clinic, we drove over an hour, they took right back to a room and Dr. Cummings came in and talked to us. He did a consult with Dr. Graehler, then we met with him and answered ALL of our questions. Within hours he called me to tell me everything went great, then he called our vet at Ft. Knox to catch him up on what had been done. I am so relieved they were able to take care of us so quickly and it was worth every penny. I understand, they want to make money too and can't just hand free care to every injured animal....so I thought their prices were very reasonable. I mean this in the best way, but hopefully we never have to go back, if we do at least I know we'll be taken care of. :-)

This Animal Clinic is amazing! Dedicated, knowledgeable,and budget-friendly - Grimes & Wood Animal Clinic really cares about the animals and their owners. Don't let the outside of the building fool you, inside is a well run practice that takes a gentle approach to pet care and won't just run up the bill with "extras." My husband's family has visited this vet for over 30 years and we have 8 under our belt with our crazy cats. I can't sing their praises enough - you just have to find out for yourself. Don't go where you get lost in the quantity over quality greed, trust your pets to Grimes & Wood to ensure they live a nice, long and healthy life.

We were blessed to find Dr. Wood 5 years ago when we moved back from Florida. Wow, she is so amazing! She is personable, caring, and so generous to serve our rescue fosters for minimal fees. We have had almost every kind of situation you can imagine with our pack and she is always thorough and compassionate. We would highly recommend her and cannot say enough about her knowledge, approach and communication skills. She always explains everything thoroughly to us and includes our opinions in the course of action. We consider her our guardian angel!

We are very thankful for the way Wicket was treated during her many stays. She had people that we knew would take good care of her and call us if anything happened. We had three more years with her because of Dr. Campbell and his great staff. We will never be able to thank them enough. We miss WICKET so very much but we know she received the best care.. One thing that made her stays easier was she liked the staff and trust them too. A very special thanks to all of the staff for all they did for "our little girl".

My family has been going to Grimes & Wood Animal clinic for as long as I can remember. They are amazing!! Growing up we had a dog who jumped out of the back end of my dad's truck and was drug for a quarter mile and ended up having no padding left on his paws. Dr. Wood happened to live near by and treated our dog like her own. She put him on her kitchen table, wrapped all four paws on her own kitchen towels and took care of him for a few days in her own home. I would never take my furry family members any where else!

Even though Dr Wood's office is not very close to our home, we would not consider going anywhere else in the Louisville area. Our dogs have received the finest care without us having to worry about being gouged by extra costs like other vets seem to do. The office facilities are nothing fancy but don't let that deter you; they are top-notch vets with a caring demeanor that only comes from people who love animals and want the best for them. And isn't that who we want caring for a member of our family?

I'm not usually one to take the time to write a review, but this vet clinic is exceptional! The staff are so kind and genuinely want to help. They didn't make me put my cat through a million tests or pressure me to, but suggested one that found the issue and didn't cost me an arm and a leg. Even just talking to the vet over the phone has been a great experience for me and I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!

My dog had surgery here. The people her are cold and rude. The girl that checked is didn't even look up at us when checking us out. No charge was even discussed with us. We love our dog and agreed ex what was said to us. If these people don't like there job then they need to go somewhere else. We will never return.
Tips & Advices
Bring medical records and medications that your pet is taking. Also, you should bring your ID and a form of payment.
Yes, there are veterinary clinics that only deal with emergency cases. They generally take walk-ins and referrals from family vets.
Yes, emergency vets treat dental emergencies and dental trauma. Freshly fractured teeth are the main category of dental injury that vets consider an emergency.
To prevent health emergencies, experts recommend supervising one’s pets, and trying to make sure they don’t get into emergency situations. A majority of emergency vet visits happen because animals were struck by cars, bit by other animals, or ingested toxins. Otherwise, the best way to prevent emergencies is by having a go-to vet you can call with any questions, and being vigilant about potential symptoms (i.e. runny stool, or trouble walking) as they appear but before they become extremely serious.
Experts say that the conditions that necessitate an emergency veterinarian visit include collapse, seizures, inability to walk, partial paralysis, and any difficulty breathing (non-stop panting, constant coughing, hyperventilation, or elevated heart rate). Gum color is often an indicator that something is wrong--especially blue gums or very pale gums. Excessive vomiting or a distended abdomen should be considered an emergency situation. Signs of any trauma or excessive bleeding should send your pet straight to the vet. Lastly, for cat owners, urinary obstruction is fatal if not treated, and generally occurs in male cats.
