Dr. Butch Schroyer
Owner, Veterinarian
Like most of his colleagues, Dr. Schroyer initially became a veterinarian because he enjoyed working with and being around animals. As his career advanced and he opened his first practice location, and learned just how much he truly enjoyed helping people and their pets. Being a service to both the human and the animal community has been a very rewarding career and one that he wouldn’t change for anything!

Dr. Schroyer achieved his undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky before going on to attend Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine, where he graduated with his DVM degree in 1980. Over the years since then, Dr. Schroyer opened his clinic in 1982. As the business grew he moved locations. In 2016, Dr. Schroyer relocated the Animal Care Clinic to a larger facility which will provide plenty of space to grow at 1096 Wellington Way, Lexington KY.

Clinically, Dr. Schroyer’s favorite aspect of the job is out-patient care, as it allows him to see a large variety of cases while also getting to know his clients and their pets. He also has a special interest in theriogenology, which is a kind of reproductive work. Lastly, he is proud to offer dental services that most other vets do not, from root canals to crowns to extractions and more. Alleviating pain for pets is truly a great feeling.

At home, Dr. Schroyer has a pair of Dobermans, a pair Chinese Crested dogs, a pair of Miniature Poodles who are very active and lively, and several Yorkies. Their acrobatic antics are always entertaining to watch. When he’s not busy seeing patients and running a successful veterinary practice, you’ll probably find Dr. Schroyer fishing, enjoying a game of golf, or tackling a woodworking project. He also plays the saxophone with several local bands and musical groups.
