At Crocker Animal Hospital we handle all of our after hours emergencies at our Franklin, KY location. View map to the right for directions. Your pet does not need to be a regular patient at our animal hospitals to take advantage of our emergency services.

If your animal has an emergency after regular business hours, on weekends, or on a holiday, call us at 270-586-0909 and leave a message for our on-call doctor. The veterinarian on-call will return your call promptly, and, if needed, make arrangements to meet you at the office in Franklin or take directions to your farm. We do charge an emergency fee for after-hours visits and will collect payment at the time of your visit.

Our doctors are always happy to answer any of your questions, but we do ask you to be considerate and please limit after-hours calls to true pet emergencies that require immediate attention, such as:

  • Severe accidents or trauma
  • Hit by cars
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Obstetrical emergencies
  • Collapse
  • Bloating
  • Severe coughing
  • Broken limbs
  • Attacks by other animals
  • Continued vomiting or diarrhea
  • Unusual swelling of the head
  • Severe pain

For non-emergency questions or concerns, please contact us during regular business hours.
