Testimonial

Read What Our Client Say

  • "Front office staff and techs professionally friendly. Dr. Keaner a wonderful vet; patient, listens, very knowledgeable, informative and we never feel rushed with his care of our animals."
    Marianne C.
  • "They were on schedule, so I didn't have to wait very long. Everyone working there was very helpful and friendly. The veterinarian was very patient and calm and made sure that she understood our situation, thoroughly explained our options, and made sure that all of my questions were answered, and they followed up the next day with a phone call. It was great! Even though this is a small, unimportant detail, the woman at the front desk drew the cutest picture on the bag of medication for my dog! It was really a sweet touch. I'm really glad I found this place."
    Jamie S.
  • "Highest quality veterinary center! Excellent check in and check out experience, vet techs are kind and caring and knowledgeable, facility is top notch and the vets are incredible!"

  • "Since moving to Arizona from Michigan four years ago, Dr. Keaner and the staff at PAWS have been taking excellent care of my now 10 year old pit mix! The staff is exceptionally friendly and professional to both me and my dog. You can tell he feels comfortable in their care. The facility is just beautiful as well. It has a very modern, luxurious feel and very warm and welcoming. They provide waiting rooms and outdoor areas for both dogs and cats as well as refreshments for the pawrents. If you want top notch veterinary care I highly recommend PAWS for your pet!"
    Shannon D.
  • "Everyone was so friendly and ready to make our fur baby comfortable. Everyone seemed so happy and loved their job. Would recommend to anyone. We went in for an ACL consult for our GSD. They explained all options and costs. Very helpful, they educated us as well."
    Joshua and Tiffany M.
  • "Great staff and doctors very knowledgeable and detailed in every visit. They provide the best quality care for our beloved furry family members."
    Dolores V.
  • "Dr Keaner is great- friendly, patient and always takes the time to explain everything completely. We have been coming to PAWS for about five years and wouldn’t even consider taking our pets anywhere else."
    Karen and Terry V.
  • "I recently adopted a stray cat and she surprised us with a littter of kittens. Mom and her kittens developed some upper respiratory issues and we were very worried about their health. PAWS was the only veterinary center I could find that was able to get us in that same day and it was one of the best decisions we could have made! Dr.Keaner and his staff were awesome and extremely helpful. Everyone made sure that Mom cat and her kittens had everything they needed and they gave me tons of helpful advice. We sat in the vets office for over an hour and a half and not even one minute of that time was wasted. Examinations were thorough, Mom and her kittens got tons of love and attention, they got their ears cleaned, nails trimmed, and they even sent us home with a new toy for the kittens. We are very grateful for the hospitality of the staff. Thanks again!!!"
    Orozco F.
  • "I appreciate PAWS Veterinary Center. Nola always has such great experiences with everyone there. Lisa, Dr. Keaner, Amber, the other Lisa, the entire team. I greatly value their care, interaction, attention to detail and heart. Thanks a million."
    Katie G.
  • "The building smells and looks quite welcoming, as are the staff. Gigi loves the place and is quite willing to follow to the back room for any treatment needed because she is so well-treated. Thanks to the staff!!! liz"
    Liz O.
  • "Always very pleasant. Not a money grab vet. They actually care about your animal :)"
    Jason L.
  • "My dog was bitten by a Gila monster, and I took her to PAWS right away. The staff acted fast and kept me informed the entire time."
    Adriana & Carlos S.
  • "You don't have to drag your dog into PAWS. They actually like to come in and are treated very well. So many great spaces to wait, and you don't wait for long. They take the time to answer questions and are willing to discuss alternatives. The best description is that it is like coming to a spa, very relaxed and comfortable for both you and your pet."
    Rosemary P.
  • "Paws is the best vet center in Tucson. Besides being extremely knowledgeable they are so very caring. They took care of my 2 dogs who were very sick. Besides helping my dear puppiies they really helped me though some heartbreaking times."
    Sue B.
  • "I couldn't have been more pleased with the entire staff and I absolutely loved Dr. Aronson. He is thorough, extremely well versed in the latest and best integrative medicine, compassionate, and passionate about what he does. I feel that my pets are in excellent hands and would recommend PAWS to everyone. I am grateful to have found a vet who will try non-invasive and holistic methodologies as a first line of treatment when appropriate. Thanks to all the wonderful staff and vets at PAWS."
    Judith C.
  • "Dr Jobe and David are so friendly and caring that Tigresa’s experience is never traumatic-maybe unpleasant but not upsetting. I am always very satisfied with the care and attention she receives and she loves it!!"
    Loren and Darla A.
  • "Dr. Jobe and David were fantastic. Her keen eye caught a deformity on an x-ray that turned out to be a bunch of cactus needles that couldn't be seen or felt without shaving Vicit's hobbit feet. He's stopped whining when he takes a step and is smiling again!"
    Cherie T.
  • "My dog is a rescue so she isn't the easiest dog to deal with. They made sure there were no animals around her because she isn't dog friendly. They were very good to her and I'm happy I found this place!"
    Ashley D.
  • "I was very pleased about how kindly the doctor and staff treated my cat. I was so nervous and anxious myself and I can only imagine how anxious my kitty cat was. BUT Dr. Aronson and the staff treated me with kindness as well as my sweet kitty cat. I think that my kitty cat was treated with such kindness and gentleness that that eased my nervousness. Thank you for all that you are doing for my sweet cat."
    Tina W.
  • "It's a stress free vet experience (or as stress free as possible). It re-surprises me everytime."
    Scott B.
  • "It was wonderful having Dr. Klimentidis and technician Shelby examine and treat my Abyssinian and 2 Maine Coon cats. All 3 of my cats had their Junior annual exam and both doctor and tech were knowledgeable, patient and kind. it was a pleasant event for all. Thank you again PAWS!"
    Cheri and Brian B.
  • "I appreciated Dr. Jobe's approach, knowledge and non-surgical suggestions. Your facility is beautiful, your staff courteous and professional. I'm glad to have found an office offering a wide range of services not typical of most veterinary clinics including "cutting edge" treatment modalities. Thank you"

  • "The entire staff at PAWS, particularly vet tech Amber and Dr. Keaner, are outstanding and truly are dedicated to the well-being of their patients. Amber was so sweet and loving with Dixie and made her relax and feel comfortable during the exam. It was easy to see that she loves her job and her patients. Dr. Keaner is very patient, knowlefgeable and always takes the time to answer any questions I have regarding my pup’s sensitive GI system and ways to add variety to her diet. I also promptly received a call the following day with the lab results and a confirmation of her prescription approval. I cannot say enough about PAWS and the level of quality care they continually provide to my pup."
    Sheryl F.
  • "Absolutely Winderful ! The entire staff truly cares. Provides the most current veterinarian care. Provides options for treatment that offers financial consideration to meet everyone’s budget. We wanted the best for our labs and we selected PAWS! They’re the BEST !"
    Lou & Tina S.
  • "Have been a client of PAWS for several years. All of the staff we have encountered are wonderful. They all treated our cat Teddy as if he was their own. Dr. Keaner was our primary doctor and he is very knowledgeable and kind. The location is great and the office is very inviting and super clean. Very happy with all the services we received at PAWS and care of our cats. HIGHLY RECOMMEND."
    Robert and Candace H.
  • "The best ever! We have a lot of experience with a variety of veterinary clinics throughout the U.S. and elsewhere. PAWS Veterinary Center is unequivocally the cream of the crop - the very best! We are so grateful to have found this lovely and ideal veterinary center! Compassionate, professional, considerate, caring, comfortable, respectful, thorough attention to detail, excellent communication, beautiful and well-designed center, excellent integrative medicine. Dr. Keaner and Amber have provided the utmost care for our beloved Bichon and we are very grateful to and for them! Outstanding followup and sincerely concerned about my pet's wellbeing. Many thanks to everyone at PAWS Veterinary Center!"
    Jennifer B.
  • "I so appreciated Dr K’s thoughtful process. Scarlett’s case was a difficult one and she thought thru the diagnosis and treatment options. I also appreciated that you all were able to work her into the surgery schedule despite a fully booked day. I have been to 3 different vets since moving here and have never felt confident in the care I received until now. I am so happy to have found you all."
    Nancy M.
