Meet the friendly staff at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt!

Abby always considered herself a “people person,” and she knew that a receptionist job would be right up her alley. When a friend referred her to The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt, she jumped at the opportunity to work in the veterinary profession!

Abby is from Sumter, South Carolina. She started here at the clinic in the summer of 2013, and loves getting to know each and every client and pet that walks through the clinic doors. Of course, she also enjoys spending time cuddling adorable puppies and kittens! Abby and her husband Nathan have three dogs, Cordy, Sandy and Navi, and two cats named Mossi and Tetris. When she has time between work and home life, Abby enjoys listening to music, singing, going to baseball games, playing video games, and practicing archery.

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!."
