Read What Our Clients Say

  • "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.

    Barbara S.
  • "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.
  • "We have received the best care for our kitties and wouldn't consider going anywhere else."

    Pam L.
  • "Outstanding"
    Mindy D.
  • "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.
  • "Integrative care! Instead of filing my dog(s) full of meds, the focus is on integrative health. Meds are recommended when needed but not as the cure-all. Dr. Aronson VERY knowledgeable and explains protocols thoroughly. Techs are wonderful too!"
    Marianne C.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "All of the staff are efficient and professional. All of the vets are excellent, especially Drs. Keener and Aronson. Having dogs all my life and a vet in the family, I am pretty current on care. Chandler the WunderBeast loves coming!🐕🐕 TY!!"
    Jerry W.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "Wonderful care and incredible staff!"
    Pat W.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "Absolutely the best veterinary practice in the area."
    Brian B.
  • "The staff is always warm and friendly and I feel confident in the care that my pet receives."
    Marie H.
  • "I knew my new-to-me mama kitty and kittens would be in good hands as soon as I walked into PAWS. Beautifully designed and decorated interior. The staff from the front desk, to the vet techs, to Dr. K. were so friendly, kind, and answered all my questions. They fed my underweight nursing mama cat lots of treats and food. Dr. K spent an hour with us for this first visit! Staff gave a follow-up call the next day. That is unheard of in the insurance driven human healthcare system. I must say, my pets are getting better quality medical care than I am."
    Gina R.
  • "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.
  • "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.
  • "Paws has always been the vet of choice for my family. I was introduced to Paws five years ago and have never been disappointed. Our dog receives the best of service from wonderful people. All of the staff is dedicated, kind and caring and easy to see."
    Charles H.
  • "Very thorough care at all levels. Jason is a gem! My Shepherd is really showing improvement with his care and concern. He always checks out his physical condition before we start therapy. He watches to make sure we are pushing him "just enough"."
    Kim B.
  • "PAWS is Wonderful! Dr. Keener is thorough, knowledgeable & very friendly. Thanks to everyone at PAWS for taking such great care of Winston... & his parents. Fondly, Jennifer & Matt"
    Jennifer S.
  • "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.
    Jennifer 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.
  • "Really nice staff, I called last minute and was able to get a quick appointment. They were super kind and sweet to my dog and i felt she was in really good hands. The facility is really beautiful and accommodating."
    Vic V.
