Meet the Doctor

Dr. Craig J. Blair

image of Dr. Craig J. BlairDr. Blair was born in Ohio and grew up in Georgetown. Raising baby ducks as a child sparked his interest in animals. When his favorite duck, Huey, was injured by a dog, and he couldn't find a veterinarian to care for him, Dr. Blair vowed he would become a vet and never turn an injured animal away just because it was a different species. To this day, Dr. Blair will see any animal that can walk, waddle, fly, slither, or crawl into the clinic. (Huey made a full recovery, by the way, and went on to live a full life.)

After completing his undergraduate degree at UK in 1989, Dr. Blair went to the Auburn School of Veterinary Medicine in Auburn, Alabama and graduated in 1994. After working in Atlanta, GA for two years, he moved back to Lexington, KY and accepted a veterinarian position at Clays Mill Veterinary Clinic. He became a partner at the clinic in 2005, and he and his wife bought the clinic in January 2009.

Dr. Blair has special interest in surgery and exotic animal medicine. Outside of work, he likes to run marathons, trail marathons, and ultramarathons.
