Healthy and happy dogs for a lifetime of fun

Bonding with your new puppy is an amazing experience that we can help you get the most out of. We know that you want to give as much love back to your new family member as they give to you.

We specialize in quality care for stressless vet visits with your dog. Covering more than just essential needs, our fear-free pet care ensures lasting relationships between our team, you, and your pet.

Our team is here to support the start of your puppy’s long life by not only giving your dog full-service preventive care but also offering resources on diet and dog training.



 Helpful resources for welcoming your new dog

There are a plethora of resources available online with tips for introducing a pet into your home — some reliable, and some not-so-reliable. In addition to those listed on our nutrition and training pages, we highly recommended these sites below for diet, dental, vaccine and general dog information.



We recommend the guidelines of The World Small Animal Veterinary Association’s Global Nutrition Committee for selecting a pet food, though ultimately the decision is yours.

Questions to ask of the pet food company include:

  • Do you have a full-time veterinary nutritionist on staff?

  • Who formulates your food and what are their credentials?

  • Do you perform feeding trials based on AAFCO guidelines or formulated to meet AAFCO guidelines? (feeding trials are preferred)

  • Where are your foods manufactured and processed?

  • What specific quality control measures do you use to ensure the consistency of the product with each batch?

  • Can you provide a complete nutritional analysis for each food? (not just the guaranteed analysis, which is a minimum/maximum)

  • What kind of product research has been conducted? Is this published in a peer-reviewed journal?

“Just wow. We had an emergency with one of our kittens and called four places and the emergency vet and none could take us.
Clarendon Animal Care was so empathetic and agreed to take us at the end of the day. Every staff member-reception, techs, the vet—were so upbeat and friendly.”
