Why Potomac Animal Wellness Services?

P.A.W.S was established in Feb 2015.

The community around the clinic is pretty diverse as we are situated by a naval base. The town of Indian Head is small and tight knit. 

We push our team to be the best in customer service, animal care and compassion. We have an excellent reputation in surrounding areas. Clients travel more than 2 hours for our great medicine and excellent customer service.

We have a great team that works well together. Because of the growing demand for vet medicine recently, we have made adjustments and shifted our focus which has made a positive impact on our culture in the office.

Our clients have positive things to say about the staff and say that the office is clean, friendly and maintains a small town feel. 

Our friendly staff and competitive pricing is what keep our clients loyal.

Our building is large and has been renovated several times over the years. It has been an operating vet office since the 70s.
