claymont animal hospital

Claymont Animal hospital is the original veterinary hospital for the Claymont community. Established over 50 years ago, Dr. Ben Weiner and his wife devoted their lives to providing care for people and their pets. The practice is now currently owned and run by Dr. Holly Mehew. We are honored to be revitalizing this practice, and are combining a current standard of care with the same personal care of patients and their human companions that the Weiners worked so hard to provide. The hospital will provide well care and vaccinations, medical care for sick visits, surgery and dentistry, boarding and grooming. All care will be veterinary supervised, and provided by competent and caring staff. Please call us today at 302-746-7790 for an appointment!

Your pet can benefit greatly from regular wellness examinations or checkups. Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and quality of life.

Pet in surgery


Our hospital contains a state of the art surgical suite. Our Doctors perform routine spays and neuters; as well as soft tissue surgeries such as mass removals, hernia repair, gastrointestinal foreign bodies, bladder stone removal and more. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. A veterinary technician is assigned to each surgical case to monitor the patient before, during and after surgery.

Dog getting a dental cleaning


Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasonic scaling instruments to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. The teeth are polished to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
