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
My pet's have always been treated with the best care possible. Very much feels like my pets are loved.
Hunter is very wary of people due to his being a rescue dog that was abused. The staff at Waynesboro animal Hospital won him over, and took excellent care of him.- STEVE & GINNY D.

Being a visitor and this not being my regular veterinarian, I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lorenz and Kim! The knowledge, care, compassion, and time was outstanding. This sets a new standard to the way veterinarian medicine should be practiced! Thank you so much!

I love Animal Hospital of Waynesboro and would recommend them to anyone who needs a doctor for their four legged babies. I truly don't think there's a better veterinary practice in the Shenandoah Valley. - JULIE B.
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.
Love this animal hospital. Would only go here for all my animals and even told friends and family to go here because of the doc. And vet tech are awesome.- BARBARA & H. LEE D.
We are loving the new facility and we have always loved the care shown to our pup. Thank you for what you do! - KALA/THOMAS D.
Everybody is always so happy and helpful here! Love going here! Glad my boss referred me to come here! I will definitely recommend to anyone that needs a vet!
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.
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.
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!

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.
