South Arlington Animal Clinic was founded by Dr. Lewis Moore in May 1980. Starting with just over 1000 square feet at the present location on Collins St., the clinic opened with the goal of providing quality veterinary care for your pets.


The clinic expanded 7 years later to double its size and to provide additional services such as boarding and grooming. A third expansion occurred in 1992 followed by additional boarding runs and equipment.
