Dr. Carithers brings the pet hospital to you!! Paws&Claws is a full-service veterinary clinic on wheels. We can perform most services done at a traditional clinic from puppy/kitten vaccines, spays and neuters, dental cleaning, preventative care, sick and wellness visits, end of life care providing compassionate in-home euthanasia. We are however not set up to see emergencies and do not have X-rays on our mobile unit. If your pet is in need of X-rays or ultrasound or will need hospitalization we will recommend a nearby traditional clinic for your pet.
