Opened in May of 2003, we have happily served Newton, Rockdale and surrounding counties for over a decade. We are a small animal clinic that sees dogs and cats. We provide a wide variety of services: annual exams, in-house lab work, spay & neuter, ultrasound, digital radiograph, dental cleanings, routine surgery, and vaccines- just to name a few. Our experienced veterinarians and staff pride themselves on providing exceptional care. Our patients are our top priority.
Meet Dr. Thomas:
"I am a 1988 graduate of Emory University and a 1993 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia. At work, I enjoy surgery and behavior management cases. In my off time I like to ride horses, read and travel. I live in Oxford with one human child, 2 dogs, 4 cats, 3 horses, one bird and our fish."

Lola Monroe is my boykin spaniel that is my baby, and O'Malley my alley cat is my trouble maker!"
"My name is Brianne, but I go by Bri, I work up front as a receptionist. I have worked at Wellspring since March 2019. I worked in a Vet's office while I was in college but took time off from working to be at home with my 2 children. When I was ready to go back to work I heard that Dr. Thomas was looking for someone to help up front, so I jumped at the chance to work in a vet office again. On my time off I am normally at the ball park watching my son play baseball."
"My love affair with animals began as a child and I have always had a number of dogs, cats, and horses in my life. I graduated from Berry College with a degree in Animal Science.

I am a teacher at General Ray Davis Middle School in Rockdale County. I've taught a variety of enrichment camps, including Dog Camp for many years. I have one daughter Megan, she is married and lives in California. I'm recently married to Kevin Matthews. When I can find an extra minute or dollar I love traveling. I plan to retire to Scotland with Dr. Thomas one day."

Wellspring Animal Hospital is now allowing clients in the building. We ask that you use the hand sanitization station and that you have a mask on at all times. If you would rather do curbside, we can still accommodate. We look forward to seeing everyone again, and try to get back to normal! As always, thank you for being supportive!
