Products & Services

Vaccinations

There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to. It’s important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.


Microchipping

Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe. This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.


Exams and Consultations

Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!


Surgery

We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.


Preventative Medicine

Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems. We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.

They worked me in on a busy Saturday and took such good care of my sweet doggy. Dr. Tyler is so knowledgeable and kind and the whole staff is so friendly. Such a warm, welcoming place, and the clinic is clean and modern. I have complete confidence in the care my baby receives there!

Dr. Taylor and her staff are "ACES". We had our first visit last week. After recently moving to Shelbyville, we needed a vet for our Puggle's annual check up and shots, along with that both our dogs needed nail trims. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. This was the best vet experience we have ever had. Awesomeness. Thank you all.

We have been bringing our cats here for 7 years and couldn't ask for a better vet. We live in Louisville and every once in a while I think I should find a vet closer to home, but then we go in for an appointment and I'm reminded of why we drive to ESAC. Both Doctors are fantastic. We primarily see Dr. Belcher and she is so warm and caring toward the pets, but also able to joke around with us about the crazy things they do.

ESAC was referred to me by a friend here in Taylorsville. My cat had already been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel disease. He needed monthly care and Dr. Taylor and her team were great. I have worked with animals most of my life and had known many vets. ESAC was the best!
