I recommend Dr. Jackson. I took my cat to Bluegrass for a full checkup and vaccinations when we first got her (we adopted her from a shelter) and they completely overlooked her having a terrible case of ear mites. We were concerned and took her to Mayfield Animal Hospital and they diagnosed and treated her ear mites and she was so much better off after that!

We continued to frequent Dr. Jackson until we moved. They have always been very helpful!

Dr. Jones is good...I personally love Dr. Jackson! I wouldn't take any animal to Bluegrass! They even kill animals that come in for grooming! Honestly, they sedate animals without consent and fail to monitor them. Also, a small dog died because they left it in the dryer too long after grooming! Although Fickey isn't the groomer, he should be able to monitor staff and keep a safe environment for the animals!!

Some years ago I took my Spitz to Mayfield vet clinic, she was having seizures and he automatically wanted to put her down, no meds or nothing, just kill her. This dog was everything to me, at that time she was my child... There was no way I was gonna kill my dog. I took her to Dr. Fickey he put her on meds and she went from having seizures daily to maybe 1 a month. Dr. Fickey took great care of my dog. She went 12 more years and I finally had to put her down myself, I did it b/c over the years and as she got older the seizures did get worse, to the point she forgot what she was doing.

The point is Dr. Fickey took the time to asses my dog, he took the time to run test, to come up with plan that was best for her. He even explained to me that Spitz were prone to seizures. The vet at Mayfield Clinic just wanted to kill her...

I unfortunately did not have as good of an experience with Dr. Fickey. About 10 yrs ago I had a bulldog mix that liked to roll in the cow fields...he got a horrible case of ringworm. Fickey prescribed some spray that made his feet swell and did not help the problem. Then we prescribed a very expensive oral med in what I later found out was way too high of a dose. My dog quickly withered away. It paralyzed some muscles where he didn't have a blink reflex and couldn't bark. We took him in for assessment and he passed away. Sad thing was when we came to pick him up...Fickey took me back to see him and he was halfway hanging out of a pet porter which was way too small for him, his tongue was hanging out, and they hadn't bothered to clean him up...in fact he still had a catheter! It was terrible. I've had a pet pass since at Murray Animal Hosptial and they made sure my dog was cleaned up and put in a box prior to me picking him up.

i worked at dr fickeys for a few months as in intern, he helped me out big time... and i did not see ONE OUNCE of foul play going on there. he is a super smart man. all of the animals were treated very well, sanitation procedures were followed, surgery with him was a blast... he is a very knowledgeable man. as far as a dog dying by the dryers, that would not be something he personally was doing, but IF and only if there was an accident with a groomer i can assure you the matter was taken care of. maybe the dryer was found faulty, or the groomer was immediately let go... or whatever the case may be. dr. fickey would not just let something like this go and would do whatever it took to make sure the situation never happened again.

DR Jackson. Hands Down the most patient and kind vet my animals have ever been to

Vicky, the answer to ur question is right below ur comment...actually an intern for fickey is actually where I heard information of a dog dying at the groomer came from. I didn't hear it straight from the horses mouth, but a very reliable source. I do know for a fact that the groomer sedates dogs without consent. Before I heard about these issues I took my German Shepard there for grooming, just so happened that I talked to my friend a short time after I dropped him off so I was able to call and demand he not be sedated. They explained that they use a small sedative to calm them. I also told them I did not want my dog to b put n the dryer, I'd pick him up wet. To my surprise, I called a few hrs later and they told me he was still n the dryer. I will NOT ever take my dog there again! By reading between the lines of Prob not's comment, appears my statements were facts! By stating IF this happened the matter was taken care of I feel accurate saying incidents like these have happened! Also, fickey may not have been behind it...but he's never shown he is a good vet. Let's his techs do his work. I had a Doberman yrs ago and fickey cropped his ears. Poor dog had his ears tapped for half his life AND fickey left stitches in which were grown deep under skin before we noticed. But thanks to that incident I no long crop my dogs ears! There are several groomers I'd recommend b4 Bluegrass!!
