The New Georgia Animal Hospital was conceived and built in 1997 in order to serve the community of New Georgia and surrounding Paulding County. Dr. Julie Lugar, her husband, Billy and two year old son, Will, opened the doors of New Georgia Animal Hospital welcoming all types of small animal pets and striving to provide quality care for our patients and their owners.

The original building was home for part of the local Williams family and was built by the seven brothers who lived up and down Highway 61 over 60 years ago using hardwoods from the surrounding property. When you enter the original house which is now part of the boarding and luxury suites known as Bow Wow Meow, you will feel a little of the local history in the original floors, walls and ceilings built by the Williams brothers for their stepmother.

It wasn't long before it became necessary to expand the practice and the new building was completed in 2003. Dr. Lugar wanted to complement the adjacent Williams home that captured the feeling of entering someone's home when you arrive at the clinic. She wants each and every client and their pets to feel welcome as they enter our clinic home. The much modernized practice offers a variety of services including in-house diagnostics, ultrasound, vaccinations, surgery, pet wellness and annual exams, boarding and grooming and much more for our special guests.

Dr.Lugar has been practicing veterinary medicine in Georgia for the past 30 years after graduating from Auburn University Veterinary School in 1988. She has recently been joined by Dr. Kelsi Alexander in 2017 who truly brings a special insight and understanding of all our clients' pets. The rest of our experienced staff comes from the surrounding areas of New Georgia and are anxiously awaiting your visit so we can provide the special experience of love and care for your pets.

Browse our website and check out the numerous articles and pet videos provided for your continued education in pet care. Our veterinary office is located on Highway 61 in south Dallas. You can find directions in the "Contact Us" page. We are looking forward to meeting you and your pet!

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I have taken my animals to Dr. Lugar since she first opened. She and her staff have always been kind, caring, compassionate, and professional. All though I moved to Powder Springs, I drive the extra distance to see her. I just brought my dog, Apollo, home after having to stay 2 nights for pancreatitis. I have total confidence in Dr. Lugar and her staff!! I would recommend this vet to anyone!!"
