First-Time Clients

We can't wait to meet you and your pet; we do anything we can to ensure you and your pet are


Since pets age at a much quicker rate than humans, these visits will become increasingly important in the early detection of any changes in their health. Save time and fill out your paperwork online.

Clarion Animal Hospital is proud to serve the tri-county for your pet’s medical needs. We always strive to become your partner in your pet’s healthcare. Our team is committed to educating our clients in how to keep your pets healthy year round, with good nutrition and exercise. 

At Clarion Animal Hospital, we strive to always keep your pet healthy and up-to-date. Our annual exams (yearly physicals) are comprehensive and performed by our veterinarians. They examine all your pet’s organ systems (such as eyes, ears, mouth, heart, lungs, skin, abdomen, etc). We also are able to update all your vaccines during your physical.
In order to ensure your new pet gets the best possible start towards a lifetime of good health in their new home, we recommend introducing us promptly to your furry friend. At this first appointment, your veterinarian will check for the following and discuss any and all of your concerns regarding your new buddy. These services are also provided at your annual exam (yearly physical):

  • Clear eyes, ears and nose
  • Heart and respiration
  • Abdomen palpation
  • Proper bite placement
  • Any signs of infection or parasites
  • Proper growth and development
  • Presence of hernia
  • Initial vaccinations and a proper vaccination schedule tailored to your pet

To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate by appointment. Emergency cases will always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delays are inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.

To ensure that our staff has time to answer all your questions, we’d like to complete any needed paperwork before your scheduled appointment time. Thus, please arrive 10 minutes early so that we can review your paperwork, and to ensure continuity of your care, please bring any previous documentation with you. See you soon!

For your protection, and that of others, all dogs must be on a leash and properly controlled while in the waiting area or exam rooms. For the safety of all animals in our care and our staff, we require that all rabies vaccinations be current. Vaccination may be required in order to treat your pet.

Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.

We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept most major debit and credit cards. We are pleased to announce that our office now provides the convenient and affordable pet care options of CareCredit and Scratchpay. These are both a low to no interest payment option. Please call our office for details.  You may also log onto the CareCredit or Scratchpay website for more information or to apply.

At Clarion Animal Hospital, we are happy to see dogs, cats, rabbits, and pocket pets. We also have an interest in birds and reptiles.

We encourage clients to visit their pets while in the hospital, however, please know it is important to arrange your visit in advance. This is to ensure that the visit does not interfere with your pet’s treatment or treatment of other pets that are in our Hospital. Please be aware, that in certain cases, visitations may have strict limitations or may not be allowed at all. These restrictions must be followed in order not to jeopardize your pet’s recovery. Please understand that the veterinarian in charge of your case may not be available at the time of your visit to update you on your pet’s progress. However, you may call during regular office hours to check on your pet and one of our veterinary technicians will do their best to update you on your pet’s condition.

Your pet, our passion.
