Conditions Treated

Conditions Treated at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt

Pets can develop a number of different conditions during their lifetimes that require veterinary treatment. An experienced veterinarian is able to accurately diagnose these issues and provide the appropriate treatment, to get your pet back to top form again. At The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt, we treat a wide range of pet conditions.

Eye & Ear Disorders

Infections of the eye and ear sometimes occur in pets. These problems can be treated with antibiotics and other medications, to eliminate bacteria and yeasts. In addition, injuries to the eyes and ears can also be a problem. Your vet in Summerfield can treat these minor problems with medications and surgery.

Respiratory Infections

Animals often acquire respiratory infections that cause coughing and breathing difficulties. Your vet can provide antibiotics and decongestants to eliminate the infection and soothe symptoms.

Gastrointestinal Problems

Bouts of vomiting or diarrhea can signal a number of problems that require veterinary care. Although most cases of vomiting and diarrhea are a result of eating something that doesn’t agree with the animal, these symptoms can also be symptoms of more serious disease. Your vet can investigate the problem, so appropriate treatment can be administered.


Animals can sustain wounds from accidents or fight with other animals. Your vet can provide care for these soft tissue injuries, administer antibiotics to prevent infection and ensure your pet

Dental Problems

Pets may have retained baby teeth, broken teeth from chewing or gum disease from the buildup of tartar and plaque on the teeth. Your Bossier City veterinarian can do teeth cleaning, extractions and treatment of gum disease.

Orthopedic Disorders

Pets can develop orthopedic disorders, sometimes from hereditary factors and other times from strenuous activity or aging. Cruciate ligament tears, subluxated patellas, hip dysplasia, and elbow dysplasia can be corrected with surgical techniques. Older animals often develop arthritis, which can be treated with medications or cold laser therapy.

Emergency Conditions

If your pet is involved in an accident or has a severe illness that caused excessive bleeding, breathing problems, seizures or unconsciousness, we can help with immediate life-saving care.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I have been taking my 16 year old lab, Oscar, to this vet since he came to me in 2004, and I wouldn't take any of my dogs anywhere else! They are so wonderful with both pets and people. I would recommend any of the doctors and staff to anyone."

  • "We have been going to another vet for years. We wanted to have our year old Wheaten Terrier, Rylee spayed by laparoscopy so she would have less pain and be back to her usual activity in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days. Our vet does the traditional spay. We had a consult meet and greet with Dr. Courtney Pierce. She answered all our questions and so friendly and professional. They have a state of the art OR suite. Rylee did great. On post op day three she spotted a squirrel and did an all out chase with no ill effects! All the staff were great."

  • "I love Dr. Jernigan at AHLB and would never take my dog anywhere else! The staff is excellent with animals and always professional, courteous and respectful to owners. I have trusted this animal hospital for all of my dog's care, including check ups, surgeries (she's had three!) and for boarding when we have to go out of town. Every experience I have had here has been wonderful and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a veterinary office for their furry children!."
