Auburn Veterinary Hospital was started in 1945, by my
father, Dr. Peter J. Clemens, Jr., who for some time was
the only veterinarian in Geauga County. As the only
veterinarian in the county he would take care of any animal
that needed help, from dogs & cats to cattle & chickens.
Auburn Veterinary Hospital has brought many firsts to
Geauga County. Our practice not only had the first x-ray
machine and the first EKG machine but also the first blood
analyzer, dental equipment, computer assisted diagnosis,
acupuncture, homeopathy, advanced dental procedures, and
advanced orthopedic procedures.
I remember that he would take radiographs of people so they
could show the films to their physician.
Also we are the first and only practice in the county to
have a veterinarian followed into practice by his son. Soon
we may also be the only practice to have a daughter follow
into a third generation as two of my daughters are hoping
to become veterinarians.
Currently, Auburn Veterinary Hospital is a small animal
practice, with a staff of 5 veterinary assistants to assist
Dr. Paul Clemens in treating your wonderful dogs & cats.
And to help further the care for pets in this area Bridge
Creek Kennel, located next door, was created and is
regarded as one of the finest boarding kennels in the

The Oncology/Hematology Service at the Veterinary Medical
Center at Ohio State provides comprehensive diagnostics and
treatment for companion animals with cancer and hematologic
What to Expect - Clients who are visiting
the Oncology Service for the first time with their pet
should expect to spend several hours or more with us. This
is due to the fact that many of our first-time patients
require diagnostic tests that either have to be scheduled
with other services in the medical center, such as
radiographs and ultrasounds, or take time to obtain the
results, such as blood tests.
Special Equipment & Technology - The
Veterinary Medical Center at Ohio State University has
numerous diagnostic capabilities that are utilized by the
Oncology Service on a regular basis. These include computed
tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI),
polymerase chain reaction (PCR), immunohistochemistry, and
flow cytometry, among others.
Common Conditions & Procedures - The
Oncology/Hematology Service treats many types of cancer.
Some of the most common are lymphoma, osteosarcoma,
transitional cell carcinoma, mammary gland carcinoma, mast
cell tumor, melanoma, fibrosarcoma and leukemia, among
others. We also evaluate and treat patients with
hematologic diseases such as immune-mediated anemia,
immune-mediated thrombocytopenia, and bone marrow
Hospice Support - We will aid responsible
pet owners with hospice care by providing financial support
for mobile vets to come to you home and monitor your dogs’
condition. Mobile vets can check vitals, provide
prescriptions, do blood work, and much more. However, this
support is solely for monitoring and caring for your dogs
health toward the end of life. We do not promote, and will
not finance, mobile vet services when your beloved dog has
become irreversibly painful or immobile. Mobile vets will
offer euthanasia at home.

Our experience indicates that without the stress, fear and
trauma that can occur when animals are taken from familiar
surroundings, they heal faster and respond better to
veterinary care in the comfort of their own homes.
After working 10 years in a veterinary hospital, Dr. Dan
felt that there was a need for a local veterinarian to
serve those individuals who would prefer in- home services.
He set his sights on providing affordable care, while also
providing a convenience to his clients not commonly offered
by typical animal practices.
Dr. Dan provides a variety of services for your pet. In the
event that your pet requires diagnostics beyond his
capability or surgery, he will provide his clients with the
name and number of a reliable and capable veterinary
hospital in your local area.
Veterinary Care &
Rainbow Bridge Pet Hospice
Serving Northeast Ohio
Founded in 1993 by Dr. Sharmyn Clark, Mobile Veterinary
Care, Inc. (MVC) originally started for pet guardians who
were disabled or elderly, but the clientele quickly
expanded to include anyone who wants in-home veterinary
services. Based in Chagrin Falls, MVC offers professional
services to treat four-legged patients in several regions
in Northeast Ohio including eastern Cleveland suburbs,
Geauga, Lake, Portage and Summit counties.
MVC is ideal for persons who are home bound or who do not
have time to take their pets to a veterinary clinic and sit
in the waiting room. Canine and feline patients are less
anxious being in a familiar home setting versus being taken
into a clinic. Along with in-house veterinary exams and
treatments, MVC now also provides in-home pet hospice and
senior care where aged pets can be kept comfortable and
As with humans, pet hospice provides care, comfort, and
compassion for elderly or terminally ill cats and dogs when
they cannot be cured or no cure is desired. It ensures that
the pet has the best possible quality of life during the
final stage of life.
The philosophy of hospice care is to provide and facilitate
care for terminally ill animals; offering palliative care
and pain relief as an alternative to suffering, premature
euthanasia, or time spent away from the family while in
intensive care. Guardians do not have to transport their
pets to and from the clinic, which allows the family to
spend more precious quality time at home with their pet.
Another aspect of pet hospice is helping you making very
difficult final decisions regarding your pet. No guardian
should have to decide to put a four-legged family member to
sleep without sound professional advice and sincere
compassion. We recognize that many belief systems exist
within families concerning their pet's care and when the
time is right for the pet to be humanely put to sleep. Our
doctors believe whatever decision is made by the owner is
always the correct decision. Pets and their guardians in
Geauga, eastern Cuyahoga, and parts of Lake, Portage, and
Summit counties can benefit from these services.
Dr. Sharmyn Clark, owner and founder of Mobile Veterinary
Care Inc., has always provided hospice care for her clients
but has had a closed practice for the past 12 years. It was
heartbreaking not be able to help the thousands of calls
she has received over the years so she decided to expand
and provide service to a much larger area. Dr. Gretchen
Kocher, who specializes in house calls, hospice and
palliative pet care (comfort-based rather than cure-based),
joined her in her venture. Dr. Kocher is now accepting
clients through out the greater eastern Cleveland area.
It is tragic when cancer complicates "end of life" care for
devoted dogs. Many people blessed with service dogs do
not have the resources available to offer their
companions a gentle, dignified exit.

Sherri DiPietro from DeJohn: "Being an animal lover,
volunteer at Geauga Humane Society, Rescue Village for 8
years and a pet parent myself, I needed to know that
there was a place that offered dignity and respect to
someone’s pet when they passed away.
I lost Tara, my first canine kid to cancer several years
ago and I knew that I wanted to have her cremated so
that she could come “home” with me where she belonged.
Even though I used a company that was referred by my
vet, what I found was that my beloved four legged “child
“was just a number to them. There was no closure or
peace brought to me when I picked up her ashes from a
countertop among piling papers with not even a spoken
word of sympathy or a question of how I was doing.
When I lost my second soul mate Tootsie, I brought her to
DeJohn Pet Services and even though she was the very
first animal that the DeJohn family took care of, they
understood my loss and took care of Tootsie as if she
were their own. She was treated with dignity and respect
and was never robbed of her identity as my Tara
unfortunately was. Through my devastating loss, I
discovered my passion to help families through their
grief of losing a pet and thus began my journey with
DeJohn Pet Services. With the memories of Tara and
Tootsie closely with me, I am granted the privilege of
being the arch of transition for the parents having to
send their four legged children over the Rainbow Bridge.
With having to deal with the loss of their beloved pet,
they can rest assured that their furry companions will
never be forgotten because here they are never just a
number; here they are treated with the same dignity and
respect that any member of your family would because
here; they are not just your family, they are ours
