Animal Medical Care

At VAA we understand how important your pet’s health is to you, and how stressful and worrisome it can be when your pet gets injured or falls ill. That’s why we pledge to offer both you and your pet the kind, compassionate care you both deserve. When you come to us, you’ll benefit from our dedicated staff and impressive facility. And if you have any questions about your pet’s treatment, we’ll be happy to answer them along the way.

No matter what type of pet you have, you probably consider them to be a member of your family. So if your beloved pet needs surgery, it’s important to find an experienced professional who can provide the care your pet deserves and the compassionate attitude that puts you at ease. At Veterinary Associates of Acadiana, we know how important your pet’s health is too. Our pet surgery services are designed to address the health issues so they can recover as quickly as possible.

Dental Care

Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health. Dental disease is associated with other serious health conditions, such as heart disease and kidney disease. We offer services to clean, treat, and extract teeth, and can provide options and instructions for at-home dental care.

Preventive Care

Interested in pet preventive care? We strive to make sure your pets are as happy and healthy as possible. This means preventing illness and disease whenever possible. For most people, they think of vaccines and heartworm prevention when it comes to preventive care for their pets. However, there are many areas where we can help keep pets healthy including, but not limited to: nutrition, behavioral counseling, dental care and early detection labwork for those pets who may be at risk.

heartworm prevention icon

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm disease has been diagnosed in all 50 states, but is especially prevalent in Lafayette and the surrounding areas. Heartworms can be found in both dogs and cats. It begins when your pet is bitten by a mosquito carrying heartworms. Indoor pets, not on a heartworm preventative, are frequently diagnosed with heartworms, as mosquitos often get in our homes through open doors and windows. Setup an appointment for a heartworm test with us and we will select a medication that is best suited for your pet.

Drs. Greg and Ashley have cared for our family’s pets for over a decade and always with patience and understanding. My husband and I have taken our furry friends in for wellness checkups, many broken nails, tooth extractions, tumor removals and when we’ve had to say that final goodbye. Each time they’ve taken the time to educate us, explain our options and just get to know us as people; not just their customers. We trust and choose Veterinary Associates of Acadiana!

– The O’Neal Family


Both Dr. Ashley LeMaire and Dr. Greg Schmidt have treated and cared for my fur babies for years! They absolutely love and appreciate all of their clients and their pets! I highly recommend both of them!

– Katie Williamson


Wouldn’t trust anyone else to care for my fur babies. Doctors Lemaire and Schmidt are both very compassionate as well as considerate doctors who have each cared for our fur family over the years. Dr Lemaire took care of my Lucy Belle for at least 15 years, she was there for both me and my husband during an emergency situation that lead to us saying goodbye to our baby. Her compassion will never be forgotten.

– Donna Lanclos


Dr Lemaire is the best! Most compassionate and caring vet ever.
