Read What Our Client Say

  • "The front desk people were very friendly, the tech was excellent and the Vet was very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail. I’ve already recommended your office to several friends."
  • "Absolutely the best veterinary practice in the area."
    Brian 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 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.
  • "Going to the vet may be scary for my pets, but it is a breeze for my husband and me. Everyone on staff is friendly, courteous, professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. The office and medical facilities are top-notch, and the ambiance of waiting areas is peaceful and serene. Our 3 cats and 1 ridgeback chihuahua are in the best hands in Tucson!"
    David & Andrea 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.
  • "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.
  • "Always very pleasant. Not a money grab vet. They actually care about your animal :)"
    Jason L.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "We have always been treated with dignity and respect at Paws Vet Center. The health care of our pets was always paramount of importance to the staff and their handling of my pets was gentle and loving. They take into consideration the fears of the animals and do their utmost to make them feel safe and comfortable. Our recent visit was no exception to the past. The vet examined our pet thoroughly and informed me promptly of the findings, We discussed the various options of treatment and finally agreed upon what seemed the best approach. The treatment was successful and I returned home with a pet who showed no sign of being disturbed. He slept comfortably and peacefully and awoke with a normal thirst and appetite. Thank you Paws for helping my elderly pet to have a dignified life as he approaches eternity"
    Dennis & Dana D.
  • "Pumpkin & I feel welcome when we come into the office. Pumpkin had no problems with her exam & toe nail trim. Her toe nails look great!"
    Barbara S.
  • "I love everyone at Paws. They are kind and very compassionate. I have 3 huskies and our female recently had a litter of 6. They get only the best care and love from Paws. Dr Arenson is by far the most knowledgeable and helpful vet bar none. My oldest husky Mosa has cancer and is 12 years old. Dr A has been treated her with such a great plan to help her. She is still doing wonderful with no signs of the disease or miserable painful other treatments. He has also helped her with her aches from her hips. Thank you all at Paws. I wouldn't take my babies anywhere else."
    Teri C.
  • "It's a stress free vet experience (or as stress free as possible). It re-surprises me everytime."
    Scott B.
  • "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.
  • "The people at PAWS are always courteous, friendly, efficient, informative, and well organized. It's also the nicest veterinary office I've ever been in -- attractive, comfortable, well designed. Most important, the staff always give excellent and kind-hearted care to my three dogs."
    Margaret G.
  • "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.
  • "Always a great experience. My dog loves the way she is treated at PAWS; she can' t wait to get in the door to get to her appointment!"
    Christine H.
  • "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!"
  • "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.
  • "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 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"
  • "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.
  • "PAWS saw me and my Sheba as brand new patients on very short notice. Dr. Thurston and all the assistants and vet techs were absolutely fabulous, and so is the facility there. Sheba was more calm than she usually is at the vet. I would absolutely return and highly recommend PAWS to others when their kitties need medical attention."
    Leigh Ellen S.
  • "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.
  • "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 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.
  • "Goldie, my 15 year old lab mix, loves her PT team! She walks so much better after her sessions of ultrasound, cool laser, and water treadmill."
    Sarah S.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "Spa-like environment. We were so surprised to see such a beautiful place for pets and people. Every detail was meticulous-like a coffee station with real coffee cups. The staff was excellent- very friendly from the moment we walked in the door."
    Marliza R.
  • "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.
  • "I LOVE this vet clinic! The staff was very friendly from start to finish. The receptionists were very accommodating to my pet and the technician was very knowledgeable and gentle with my dog. I will definitely be back."
    Sammie K.
  • "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.
  • "We have been bringing our two dogs to Paws for about 10 years. All of the staff there have been considerate and professional. The waiting room is relaxing and clean as are the examination rooms. Our wait to see a vet has never been too long nor have we ever felt rushed once in the exam room. All options and procedures are thoughtfully explained. We also appreciate the follow up calls to inquire if our pets are doing well."
    Teresa & Dan O.
  • "This was a great first visit. We had an intake appointment and developed a plan to begin rehabilitation for my 11 year old German Shepherd (two recent back surgeries.) The plan is more comprehensive than my previous experience at a different facility. It not only includes underwater therapy, floor exercises and homework but also supplements to help with arthritis and disk problems. Dr. Jobe was very caring and really listened. I had concerns that had not been addressed by my previous facility (e.g., my dog's inability to sit comfortably) and Dr. Jobe did address all of my concerns. Our appointment included Dr. Jobe, our future physical therapist Jason and her vet tech Bria. It was great to meet the entire "team" and have them become acquainted with my dog and our problems. I feel like we are receiving great care and finally have confidence in my dog's rehab plan."
    Kim B.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "Dr. Keaner and Technician Amber were amazing. Very patient, thorough, and explained everything they were going to do for my cat. I also felt that the cost was reasonable, especially since they had to do blood/urine tests and sent me home with medicine. I would definitely recommend PAWS!"
    Lora K.
  • "The staff are very friendly , supportive , and helpful. All are very knowledgeable . The office is clean and comfortable. My overall experience is very good and I would recommend PAWS Vet. To all !"
    Sandra W.
  • "I absolutely love this place. We have seen two different veterinarians and numerous staff and techs, and we have had an amazing experience every time. Thank you for treating my dog so well and being patient enough to answer our questions and respect our choices."
    Cassidy F.
  • "My regular vet was out of town and of course my cat got sick . I looked up other vets and I saw that PAWS had great reviews. There were well deserved. Everyone from the front desk, the vet tech, to the doctor was amazing. They were pleasant, professional, and put me at ease. The doctor explained all the tests and procedures, and personally called me with the results. I could not be more impressed. In addition, the practice is aesthetically beautiful. I expected a hefty bill, but since it was late Saturday, I didn't have much choice. I was pleasantly surprised though. They discounted the office visit and a procedure, and I felt that the price was incredibly fair. I have only great things to say about PAWS."
    Lora K.
  • "I love this place. Having worked as a veterinary assistant, this practice is professional, informative and caring. I drive an hour and a half each way to bring my kitty here. Thank you."
    Cassie & Matthew M.
  • "Everyone was extraordinarily friendly. I appreciated that the Dr. and Ashley took the time to talk with me. They also loved on my kitten, which she loved and I loved! It made me feel really great and comforted that I had chosen PAWS."
    Laura A.
  • "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. Klemintis is a great vet. She is very informative and loves cats like we do. We would definitely recommend her to others as paws."
    Cheryl S.
  • "I had tried several Tucson area clinics for my labradoodle who was suffering from severe stomach problems. I had not received a correct diagnosis until I found PAWS. My little dog gained weight and has been healthy ever since her correct diagnosis and treatment. I am eternally grateful to Dr Aronson and his staff of the great care we have received over the years. I would highly recommend PAWS."
    Melanie D.
