Welcome to the Animal Kare Center of Paducah Vet Services


 In the summer of 2019 Animal Kare Center opened the doors of our brand-new state of the art facility. At that time, we became the only full-service animal care facility in the area. We offer industry leading veterinary care, customizable boarding, engaging daycare, and show quality grooming. We invite you to call with any questions or needs that you or your pet may have.

Dr. John D. Myers, DVM

Dr. John Davis Myers lives in Kevil, Kentucky with Amy, his wife of nearly 30 years. Johnny and Amy have three children—Nathan, Mallie, and Ben. Nathan, the oldest, is a 2016 graduate of the United States Naval Academy. Nathan currently serves aboard the USS North Dakota, a Virginia-class fast-attack submarine based in Groton, Connecticut. Mallie graduated summa cum laude from the University of Kentucky in December 2016, where she earned a B.S. in Agricultural Economics. She will graduate from the University of Kentucky College of Law in May 2020. The youngest of the three, Ben, is in 6th grade at Ballard County Middle School. He enjoys football and basketball, playing trumpet in the band, 4-H activities, and both deer and duck hunting.


Dr. Myers grew up on his family’s row crop farm in Ballard County, where he and his family still live. He graduated from Murray State University in 1990 with a B.S. in Animal Science. Dr. Myers went on to study Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University, earning his D.V.M. in 1994. Upon graduation, he went on to work in private practice, where he has remained for the duration of his career. Some of Dr. Myers’s lifelong passions include waterfowl hunting and retriever training, which has reflected in his career path and practice. He has focused on the sporting breed industry throughout his education and working career.


In December 1997, Dr. Myers opened Animal Wellness Center, Inc. as a single-veterinarian practice. He worked in that practice until July 2019, when he merged his practice with another office to form the new Animal Kare Center of Paducah (“AKC”). AKC’s newly built, multi-purpose facility is the region’s first veterinary clinic offering veterinary, boarding, and grooming services under one roof. Training, conditioning, and physical rehabilitation services will begin in spring and summer 2020 as well.
