Our team of veterinary professionals understand how much you love your pet and have worked hard to keep animals safe and healthy. We provide quality health care in a warm and friendly environment. At Clinton Animal Hospital, we adhere to the highest standards for all of the services we provide. Our only goal is to make sure your pet is healthy and happy.

Clinton Animal Hospital formerly known as Orr Animal Clinic was established by
Dr. Daniel Orr in
 1957. In 1977, Dr. Zack Seymore and Dr. George Copeland both joined the practice. After the passing of Dr. Orr in 1985, his son Dr. Steve Orr followed in his footsteps and joined Dr. Copeland at Orr Animal Clinic. Over the next several years, the clinic has had several different owners. Our current owner and Clinton native Dr. Bess Pierce purchased the practice in 2019.  Dr. Pierce along with associate vets, Dr. Julie James and Dr. Mindy LaMier, strive to continue to serve the community with the same compassion that is the foundation of Clinton Animal Hospital. 

May 2022 Update


  • Due to long wait times, we are now doing tech visits, such as nail trims and anal gland expressions by appointment. Please call ahead to reserve a slot.

  • We have reopened our lobby!  We ask that you continue to call to check in due to limited seating.  Masks are optional at this time unless you have any respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, fever.  If you have any of these symptoms masks are REQUIRED. We will continue to service you curbside if the need arises. We ask for your patience and understanding if wait times are longer than expected due to staffing shortages. Our goal is to provide the best care for your animals.

Thank you for your continued patience and generosity.
