I love AHW! I have been bringing my fur babies for about 15 years. I love the care you all provide. You guys are amazing!!!!!- KRISTIE
The staff makes the transition well during this time of curbside only service. They have been doing their best during these trying times. Hats off to them for being loving, safe and kind towards our fur pets and us!
The staff is always courteous, caring and friendly. They helped get us through one of our toughest days, losing 2 pets at once, and always treat us like family.
My cat is very afraid of strangers yet has no problem with vets and techs at Animal Hospital of Waynesboro. I don't know what their secret is but I applaud their care and treatment.
As always, a very caring staff! THANK YOU ALL!! We love you for loving our fur babies. - SYLVIA
Tech, Emily, was very thorough in her phone questions. Tech, Kim, assured me that my grumpy cat had behaved herself during her exam! Dr. Reeder provided excellent care to my 19+ yr old "lady"! And CSR, Tammy, checked me out very quickly in the car!
Animal Hospital of Waynesboro is the absolute best hospital. The vets and staff are amazing. They always give the best care and attention to our dogs. The vet spends quality time discussing my concerns and the best care for the dogs. The staff is outstanding. They are all so kind and take care of our needs and questions promptly. We highly recommend Animal Hospital of Waynesboro and certainly let our friends know the best clinic to go to. - MARTHA
Everything was very timely, which I know cannot always be guaranteed because of emergencies. We are always happy to wait as Baxter is eager to sniff every blade of grass on your campus! This time, though, every single aspect of our visit was efficient. As always, excellent communication from the doctor and the staff.
I trust Dr. Lorenze and his team with my precious pets. He's been a part of our family for years and we feel comfortable with our furbabies in his care. Very considerate, professional and knowledgeable.
We continue to receive amazing service, especially the customer service in the pandemic. The customer service people are doing a super job, as are the vet techs. Thank you for continuing the quality care during covid. - TERI
My pet's have always been treated with the best care possible. Very much feels like my pets are loved.

What a great team at AHW! Rosie doesn't "quake" when we pull in the parking lot so that tells me SHE also thinks Dr. Weeks at the rest of the team are great, too!- ANONYMOUS
You have been there for me with 4 dogs, 2 deceased, and my present 2 little rascals. Your staff is wonderful. I have the utmost respect for and trust in Dr. Weiss. You have accommodated my special needs/cat allergy as well. Thank you so much.

Our Professional Dog & Cat Teeth Cleaning Services
Even pets need a visit to the dentist from time to time. When calculus forms on your pet’s teeth, it is impossible to remove without the efforts of an experienced veterinarian and veterinary technician. At Animal Hospital of Waynesboro, we:
- Examine your pet’s teeth and gums thoroughly while they are under general anesthesia
- Take dental X-rays of your pet’s mouth to check for signs of dental disease, bone loss, and more
- Use a hand scaler and an ultrasonic scaler to remove stubborn calculus that has formed above and below the gum line
- Polish the enamel surfaces smooth
- Extract teeth and perform other minor oral surgeries if necessary
- Send clients home with dental care kits and a dental report card so they can stay on top of their pet’s dental needs
Include Teeth Cleaning in Your Pet’s Daily Routine
Routine teeth cleaning is the best care. Your pet becomes accustomed to the daily treatments you provide, which improves their health and increases the time between cleaning procedures. Removing plaque before it has time to harden can save your pet from painful gum infections and the potential for tooth decay, or larger systemic problems.
