The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and they were able to keep my furry friend comfortable for the entire visit. I definitely recommend A Paw Above for all of your pet's needs!

David Reimondo

Very nice and new vet clinic! Everything is extremely clean and organized. The free coffee and wifi as a nice extra. I did have to wait a bit for the vet but I scheduled the day of. I was coming in as a new patient just for a sanitary shave for my long hair cat and they got me in same day. I was originally told I would need to pay an exam fee as well since my cat was new but they only charged me for the sanitary shave ($15) which was great! Everyone that worked there was very nice and had a very calming presence. My cat gets very nervous around new people and this was the calmest I’ve seen him at a vet. I’ll definitely be bringing him back.

Did you know?

Dogs have an incredible sense of smell, capable of detecting scents that are undetectable to humans. In fact, a dog’s sense of smell is estimated to be 10,000 to 100,000 times more sensitive than ours! This remarkable ability makes them invaluable in various roles, such as search and rescue, detecting explosives, and even identifying medical conditions like certain types of cancer. So, next time you’re amazed by your dog’s ability to find a hidden treat or track a scent trail, remember that their superpower lies in their extraordinary sense of smell!

Did you know?

Cats have a unique grooming behavior known as “allogrooming”? In multi-cat households, you might notice cats grooming each other. This grooming not only helps keep their fur clean but also strengthens social bonds between them, promoting a sense of companionship and trust among feline friends. So, the next time you see your cats grooming each other, know that they’re not only maintaining their fur but also strengthening their feline friendships in a fun and adorable way!
