Our Commitment to Excellent Care

Dr. Kim Smith DVM, Owner and Head Veterinarian, has always had a dream to run a state-of-the-art clinic that not only practiced the best patient care, but also the best customer service. Cornerstone Animal Care is the culmination of that dream, and many years of hard work and dedication.


Cornerstone Animal Care

Cornerstone Animal Care is a veterinary clinic located in historic Frankfort, Kentucky, that provides service to small animals and exotic pets. We provide health, wellness, dental, and other services for your animals.


We at Cornerstone Animal Care understand the bond between people and their pets. Our goal is to join in that partnership by continuing to educate ourselves in order to provide the highest quality of medicine with state-of-the-art equipment. We will educate our clients so they can make knowledgeable choices about their pets health and wellness. While always striving to keep pet health care affordable, we will provide our clientele with different treatment options. In educating and providing these options we will work with our clients to extend their pets lives as well as keep them healthy and happy. We are a family at Cornerstone Animal Care and we want you to join our family and feel at home

Whether we are providing health or boarding services to you Dog, Cat, or other animal, we believe service does not stop at the door.  We offer continual support for the health and happiness of your pets through our commitment to service at home as well.  Whether you choose to interact with your care program through our various web-based tools, facebook, or through our help portal, we are here to answer your questions and ensure the well being of your pets.

Emergency After Hours Contact Information

We now have a cell phone dedicated to reaching us regarding after hours emergencies for your pets.

If you need our emergency service call 502.395.3084. If you receive voicemail, leave a message for a return call.

Because we understand that there are times and locations where cellular phone calls can't always be made successfully, you can now also text this number.

Starting December 2018, our emergency cell service is for any pet and you do not have to be a current Cornerstone Animal Care client to be seen.   A deposit of $100 is required for a veterinarian to come in and can be made with a credit or debit card over the phone.  Full payment for all services will be due at time of service.  

We also ask that you understand that there will be the occasional situation where our doctor cannot respond to emergency calls or texts. If you do not receive a return call or text within 15 minutes, please contact one of the local emergency services.  In Lexington you can call Bluegrass Veterinary and Emergency Services at 859.268.7604 or MedVet at 859.276.2505.


Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We would like to assure all of our clients we are continuing to maintain a safe and sanitary environment at Cornerstone Animal Care. Commonly touched surfaces are disinfected multiple times throughout the day. Team members wash hands between every appointment and exam rooms are disinfected after use. We also strongly encourage our team to stay home when not feeling well.

In an effort to protect our staff and clients, Cornerstone Animal Care please asks that you adhere to the following precautions to assist with recommended social distancing.

· Please call ahead for all medication or food refills in an effort to make sure we have items in stock.
· Before stopping by please call to make sure we are still open for appointments.
· If you have traveled recently or have a fever, cough or other respiratory symptoms please stay in your car and call us upon arrival. Our team members can meet you in the parking lot to bring your pet in or to bring food and/or medicine out to you.
