Atlanta, GA veterinary care!

Lawrence Animal Hospital was opened in 1967 by Dr. Robert Lawrence. It was the first veterinary hospital in Atlanta to feature separate waiting areas for cats and dogs. Upon his retirement in 1985, Dr. Lawrence sold the hospital to Dr. Edward Wier. The name was left unchanged in honor of Dr. Lawrence’s many years of caring service to the area’s pets and their owners.

Dr. Wier is a native of Athens, GA and is a graduate of the University of Georgia. He practiced for a number of years in Westminster, Maryland and Roswell, Georgia before coming to Lawrence Animal Hospital. After more than 25 years at Lawrence Animal Hospital, he remains one of the dwindling solo practitioners in the Atlanta area.
