Compassionate care for your pets

Unconditional love. That’s what the staff at LaRue County Animal Clinic says that our pet animals give us. Dr. Clint Durham, Harley Walters, and Carol Tucker, at the clinic on Highway 1607, strive to reciprocate that affection in their treatment of their patients.

“We offer quality, compassionate, up-to-date care for all of the fur-babies that come here,” said Tucker, receptionist.

The clinic has been at its current location since 1979. A full-service, veterinary hospital, it offers comprehensive medical, surgical, and dental care.

“We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of outside commercial laboratories,” noted Walters, veterinary assistant. “We also work closely with specialty practices when special diagnostic procedures are required.”

The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities including both a conventional x-ray unit and a dental x-ray unit, and a closely supervised hospitalization area.

“We strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years,” said Walters. “Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.”

Their patients have included some uncommon pets.

“We’ve had ferrets, rabbits, even a pet python that stretched across four men,” noted Walters. “Dr. Durham successfully treated it for pneumonia.”

Durham treats all animals, small and large, alternating his hours at his practice in Hodgenville with an office, Green River Veterinary Services, on New Columbia Road in Campbellsville.
