At Jefferson Animal Hospital Fern Creek, our focus is to partner with you to ensure that your pet has the best preventative health care possible. When we opened our doors in 1978, little did we know how much we would mean to our Louisville community and Southern Indiana. We teach our staff to be compassionate and understanding of pet owners emotions and that we are a team with you to provide what is best for your pet(s) health care needs. We push our staff to be the best educated and most knowledgeable in Louisville to be able to provide these highly skilled services and procedures.
