We are open for business

The steady stream of news and information about COVID-19 (coronavirus) has impacted each of us. At Springhurst Animal Hospital, the health, safety, and well-being of our patients, staff, and community is our number one priority. We are making every effort to continue caring for your furry family members, during the COVID-19 outbreak, and in order to do so, we must reduce the risk to our staff as much as possible.

To do this we are implementing the following procedures.

 For any pet visit:

It is essential that anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, or shortness of breath) or who has traveled internationally in the last 14 days or to an area in the United States with high incidence of COVID-19, DO NOT ENTER THE BUILDING.  PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE FROM YOUR VEHICLE FOR ASSISTANCE.

For all office appointments

We will not be accepting any walk-in or unscheduled activities.

We ask all owners to remain in their cars for all appointments. We will have staff meet you at your vehicle. (We would prefer that all owners remain in their vehicles to help keep our staff safe.)  They will check you and notify the technicians and doctors you are here.  Our technician will then come out and get a brief history, then bring your pet in for treatment.  Please remain in the parking lot.  Please do not leave.  We will call you to review your pet's exam.  We will have staff collect the payment over the phone (please have your form of payment ready). Then return your pet to your vehicle.  

We do ask that you please respect the 'social distancing' recommendations and maintain 6 feet from others, and refrain from shaking hands.  

Please clean all carriers, leashes, collars with an alcohol base cleaner before your appointment.

We will not be able to keep any personal items.

For any surgery / drop off treatment / grooming / boarding

We ask all owners to remain in their cars.  We will meet you at your car.  Our staff will bring out the necessary forms for you to complete.  Once the forms are completed, our staff will bring your pet in. Our staff will contact you when the surgery, treatment, or grooming is completed and give you a pickup time.  We will collect payment at this time.  Please have your form of payment ready.  Please call our office when you arrive to pick up your pet.  We will review the instructions for post-op care when our staff brings you pet out to you in your car.

Please clean all carriers, leashes, collars with an alcohol base cleaner.

We will not be able to keep any personal items.

For all prescription / food refills

Please call the office for all refills and prescription food pick up.  Our staff will call you when the refill or food is ready.  We will then collect payment at this time.  We will set the food / prescription at our pick up station on the front porch.  If the prescription is a controlled drug or requires refrigeration, please call the office when you arrive.  We will place the prescriptions at the pick up station.

Thank you for your understanding and please do not hesitate to call us with any questions. We're here for you and your pet. We will continue to keep you informed as news and information becomes available.

Thank you,

Lee Hankins, D.V.M.

The Vet Team in Louisville

Dr. Lee Hankins is our founder and managing partner at Springhurst Animal Hospital. In fact, Dr. Hankins has been treating pets at our animal hospital since 1999. Our vet received his undergraduate degree at Western Kentucky University, and then went on to obtain his Veterinary Medicine degree from Tuskegee University. After these academic accomplishments, Dr. Hankins moved back to Kentucky to complete his dream of owning his own practice. Thanks to our veterinarian’s passion and dedication to animals, we have been serving the community for more than 18 years.
