Our Veterinarians

The focus of our clinicians is diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. We treat each patient as if they were our own pet.

Dr. Hardigree

Dr. Millie Hardigree was born and raised in Lexington. She attended Transylvania University and then went on to study veterinary medicine at Auburn University. Upon graduation, Millie started working at our current location, though it was then known as Southland DelTor Veterinary Clinic. In January of 1996, Dr. Willimas and Dr. Hardigree purchased the hospital and the rest is history. Millie has a special interest in internal medicine and loves treating our elderly patients. Her favorite thing is getting to know all the wonderful clients and patients, especially all the kitties and puppies. Millie has reached full capacity with ten pets at home. Family pets include three horses, Miles, Magic, and Wally, four dogs, Tucker, Gracie, Zipper, and Dixie, and three cats, Monk, Lilly, and Felix. Millie mostly enjoys time spent with family or watching Kaylee, her daughter, show Miles at The Horse Park.

Dr. Williams

Dr. Lisa Williams attended the University of KY where she met her husband, Jamie, in the UK marching band. She received her DVM at Auburn University. Lisa and her family have a farm in Jessamine County where they have raised Angus cattle and American Warmblood horses. Two of the offspring are Lexington Mounted Police horses.
