We're Fully Focused on Pets and Their Families

Our animal hospital in Dunedin, FL, mainly treats dogs and cats, but we also welcome small mammals (pocket pets and sugar gliders), rabbits, birds, and reptiles.

As part of our commitment to excellent care, our animal hospital is designed to be more open so that patients can see what’s happening in their surroundings. We want our practice to feel welcoming and safe for every pet.

Taking Veterinary Care to a Higher Level

As your veterinarian in Dunedin, FL, we think that only the very best medicine will do. Therefore, we have outfitted our animal hospital with some of the latest, safest, and most reliable technology.

Our digital X-ray equipment produces higher-quality images of your pet’s bones and joints in a shorter amount of time.

Our in-house ultrasound machine offers a step up from radiography, allowing us to view internal structures in motion and in sharper detail.

Laser surgery gives us greater precision when performing certain procedures and can reduce swelling, bleeding, and recovery time for pets.

Playing an Active Role in Our Community

Along with providing state-of-the-art medical, surgical, and preventive care, we also enjoy participating in pet-related community events. Dunedin is home, and we want to give back to the pets and people who make Paws and Claws Animal Medical Center possible.

We are a Pet Pavilion sponsor! Donations for the Pet Pavilion can be brought to the Paws and Claws clinic, and we will deliver them to the Dunedin Cares Food Pantry.
