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.
Otis expresses his thanks!
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.
Once again the WONDERFUL STAFF at AHW, have gone above and beyond to help me keep my old girl (17 years old) trucking along. I can’t thank them enough for their compassion and concern. - BLAINE
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 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!
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.
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
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!
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!
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.
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
The Different Facets of Pet Wellness Exams
Pet wellness care is comprehensive. That means it includes a variety of services and treatments that, together, create a complete healthcare program for your pet:
- Routine physical exams where we check your pet’s vitals and everything else from nose to tail
- Disease and parasite screening via blood and fecal testing
- Vaccinations to increase your pet’s immunity to harmful diseases
- Parasite prevention to protect your pet from parasite infestations and infections
- A discussion about your pet’s behaviors, diet, activity level, and any health concerns you have
- Additional treatments to address any issues we may have found during the exam
Pets' health needs vary in many ways, including by age.
Adult pets do best with maintenance care, which includes annual exams, vaccinations, and disease and parasite screens. The goal is to get your adult pet to their ideal condition and maintain that status for as long as possible.
Senior pets often have specific needs to help them manage conditions such as diabetes, heart failure, arthritis, and kidney disease. It is perfectly possible to give your senior pet a better quality of life with proper medical care. Our team needs to monitor their health more closely with more frequent exams and diagnostics.
The Pet Parasite Problem
Parasites are a big issue for our pets. Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks are active for just about the entire year. These pests can spread serious diseases to dogs and cats, and occasionally humans. With proper control, you can reduce disease risks and prevent harmful infestations.
