Welcome to Arden Animal Hospital
We are Grant and Heather Kendall, and we are honored to carry on the traditions and values of our father, Tom Kendall, DVM. Our dad joined Arden Animal Hospital is 1972, where he spent over 40 years practicing veterinary medicine. When he became ill in late 2014 and died soon after from pancreatic cancer, we decided it was important for us to continue his legacy to ensure that Arden Animal Hospital continues to grow and serve our Sacramento community.
Family Owned and Operated
Our father taught us important life lessons that have not only shaped our personal values, but are also the cornerstone of Arden Animal Hospital. We believe in the importance of kindness, compassion and respect for our clients, our patients, our associates and our co- workers.
We are dedicated to lifelong learning as it is vital to our personal growth, health, and happiness. Our doctors and staff stay current on developments and trends in veterinary medicine by regularly attending training seminars, conferences and in- house staff meetings and training.
We believe in being active in the community we serve and strive to be an organization that is of service to others. Our father worked closely with the Mercer Vet Clinic which provides veterinary services to Sacramento’s homeless. Our father was passionate about helping the homeless care for their beloved companion animals because he understood the unconditional love, companionship and security that animals provide and we focused on continuing Arden's involvement in these types of important organizations.
Arden Animal Hospital is also deeply connected to the University of California, Davis Veterinary School. Our father was a volunteer assistant clinical professor at the veterinary school and loved nothing more than to mentor young veterinary students. We continue to host veterinarian students on their externships at Arden Animal Hospital to learn about general practice medicine from our exceptional doctors and staff.
We look forward to becoming an essential part of your pet’s health care team ensuring your pet continues to be a happy and healthy member of your family.
