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

Since the age of 12, Lauren volunteered at the Guilford County Animal Shelter. From her first day, she knew that working with pets was the career for her! Now she serves as a professional groomer here at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt.

Lauren grew up in Greensboro with her parents and two sisters. She began here at the clinic a number of years ago before taking leave to have her first son. Recently, Lauren returned when the practice had a job opening. She’s very proud to be able to look at a pet and know exactly what sort of hairstyle it needs—seeing the looks on customers’ faces when they first view their made-over pet is the ultimate reward! Lauren and her son, Cooper, share their property with several pets. They have three dogs, Ruger, Bandit, and Muffy; two horses named Snowflake and Duke; a miniature pony named Monkey; and George, a miniature donkey. When time allows between work and family life, Lauren enjoys spending time outdoors and horseback riding.

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!."
