Fairdale is immediately located southeast of Louisville, Kentucky, home of the Kentucky Derby. We are looking to add a fourth Doctor to our team that includes an amazing support staff of 15 with four licensed technicians.
Bannon Woods Veterinary Hospital is a full service medical and surgical veterinary practice focused on providing clients the best care for their pets in a timely fashion. Our hospital provides services from wellness visits to orthopedic and colic surgery. The heart of our practice is Equine medicine and surgery, but we have found that our Doctors enjoy the schedule of mixed practice.
Associates have a surgery day, ambulatory day, in clinic day and a floating day typically. Doctors work a rotating schedule of 4 and 5 day work weeks with every other weekend a three day weekend. We are closed on Sunday and have short hours on Saturday. The variety we can offer makes for happy veterinarians and staff. We feel that you can practice high quality medicine and surgery and enjoy your down time. A happy doctor has better productivity and patient care in our opinion.
We provide emergency services for our Equine clients ONLY, small animal patients are referred to area emergency facilities. Patient visits are by appointment only to allow Doctors and staff time to provide high quality service and help ensure quality of life for the entire veterinary team. Our facility is designed to be calming for patients/ staff and greatly productive.
