PAW Health-24 Hour Animal Care Center

Certified/Licensed Veterinary Technicians or Veterinary Nurses are chronically under-appreciated and under-utilized in our industry. The traditional hierarchy of Veterinarian, CVT, Unlicensed staff, and Reception staff has led to a plague of career dissatisfaction.

At PAW Health Network we have toppled that hierarchy to enable all of our staff to reach significantly higher levels of success and fulfillment in their professional roles. CVTs and Veterinary Nurses are utilized to their fullest capacity in what they are trained to do.

Here To Serve. These words can be heard around our clinic and guide every policy and procedure at PAW Health Network.

Combining the drive to improve our patients' quality of life; to improve balance in the life of our staff; to maintain non-corporatized local influence; to emphasize education of all members within the care team, and you have PAW Health Network's industry-changing practice model.
