Our History

Clairmont Animal Hospital opened in August of 1990 when Dr. Smith and his wife, Denise, purchased the land and renovated the building which is now our hospital. The hospital’s present location has a very interesting past. It was the home of a locally famous Medicine man, a Civil war encampment site, a 1929 private residence, an antique shop, and a backpacking outfitter.

Clairmont Animal Hospital was founded on the belief that if an environment was created that provided excellent veterinary care with personalized client service, it would flourish. Initially, Dr. Smith was the sole veterinarian on staff and had a support staff of only two. The rapid growth to our present size is due to many factors, including years of dedication, hard work and sacrifice, an excellent and committed staff, and referrals from our clients.

Clairmont Animal Hospital is a full-service hospital providing complete medical and surgical services as well as boarding and grooming facilities. Although our patients are primarily dogs and cats, Dr. Smith is also licensed to treat wildlife. We take pride in our professional veterinary staff as well as our experienced and dedicated team of support staff.

At Clairmont Animal Hospital, our primary focus is on providing quality veterinary care and personalized customer service. We are morally and ethically committed to fulfilling the needs of our clients and patients with scientifically progressive equipment and procedures in a professional and compassionate setting.

“I've been taking my babies to Clairmont Animal Hospital since they were kittens (9 years), and every individual from the front desk folks to the Veterinary Technicians to the Docs is always kind, friendly, and helpful. Clairmont Animal Hospital is the BEST.”
