Our Professional Staff


Our Doctors

Dr. Julie Lugar, DVM

Dr. Lugar graduated from Auburn University Veterinary School in 1988 and built the New Georgia Animal Hospital with her husband, Billy. They have two children, Will, who is enrolled at Kennesaw State University and Cassie, a high school senior.

Dr. Lugar has been named Veterinarian of the Year by the Georgia Humane Society and is an active volunteer in her church and community. Her favorite hobbies are knitting, sewing and power walking. Pictured above with Dr. Lugar is Emmett, the twenty-year old leader of her six barn cats. She has a wonderful three-legged lab named Luke, her daughter’s horse, Penny, our miniature donkey, Ellie, plus lots of fresh eggs from the chickens that keep everyone busy on the Lugar farm.

Dr. Brandi Bailey, DVM

Dr. Bailey joined the practice in August 2007 and had an immediate positive impact. She is married to Erik and has a wonderful son named, Mekhi. Dr. B, as she is known, graduated from the University of Tennessee Veterinary School and has brought a wonderfully dry sense of humor to the staff as well as a compassionate approach to her chosen profession of veterinary medicine. She is truly one of the special veterinarians who enjoys making a difference in people’s lives by caring for and helping their pets.

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!!
