Are you looking for a full-service animal clinic to serve your beloved pet's every need at one convenient location? Then, The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt is here to give you exactly what you need. We are proud to serve the area of Summerfield, NC on everything related to pets of all kinds. We are both an animal clinic and an animal hospital. This means we can easily take care of routine medical issues as well as complex issues that require lab work. Whether your pet needs surgery or vaccinations, we are here for you.
Our clinic and hospital is headed up by Dr. Joseph L. Jernigan, a licensed and experienced veterinarian who loves your pets almost as much as you do. You will find him to be kind, gentle, and one of a kind. He knows how important your pet is to you and will always give your pet what is in their best interests and yours. You will get the caring and compassion here that is missing from so many other animal clinics. Here, you and your pet aren't just clients. You are valued members of our own family.
Kindness is the Basis of Our Practice
The rest of our team is just as committed to the health and well-being of your pet as Dr. Jernigan. We are committed to educating you on how to keep your pets healthy at home, using excellent nutrition and exercise. We understand that the best animal health begins at home, and want you to know that, too. With excellent home care, most pets should only need us for routine examinations and vaccinations, or the occasional illness or minor injury, the same as any other family member.
We give you the tools necessary to create this scenario and make it a way of life for you and your pet.
We are a top veterinarian center in the area. We stay on top of the latest innovations in veterinary medicine and technology, so your pet always has access to the best of everything. Whether you are coming in to get your pet a check-up or medication, care for an acute illness or a hip replacement, we do everything with the best equipment, the most up to date techniques, and the kindness and compassion both you and your pet deserve.
