How We Care

When you look into your pet’s eyes, you see innocence. You see love. You see a soul. When your pet looks into your eyes, they see a protector. They see a best friend. They see a hero. We know what it’s like to care so deeply for a pet. We, ourselves, are passionate animal lovers. And we love the people who care for them, too. That’s why we care so much about getting to know you on a personal level. About treating you like family. About creating an environment where you can feel at home. This is our vision for a deeper kind of veterinary care. Because love deserves no less.

We believe in making a difference in the life of every soul who walks through our doors. That is why we pride ourselves on offering a deepened range of veterinary medicine. Through preventive care, vaccinations, surgery, and modern pharmaceuticals, we can ensure that your pet has access to the best that modern medicine has to offer. When a health condition is chronic, we can offer holistic modalities that are gentler on the body, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and accelerate healing.

The life you share with your pet is precious. And together, we’ll help you two share more moments, more love, and more happiness together.

A Better Way

When you walk through our doors, your problems become our problems. Your concerns become our concerns. And your family becomes our family. That is why we pride ourselves on listening, truly listening, to you. We love to help you understand the deeper “why” behind your pet’s health needs. And we guide you along the path in front of you – through the happy times, the sad, the ups, the downs, and everything else that comes with loving a pet so dearly. This is a place of excellence, inclusivity, and compassion. This is a place for animal lovers. This is a place for you.

 

Because to us, caring for your pet like our own isn’t a job. It is our purpose in life. It fills our hearts and touches our souls.

We’ll Make a Difference

I have two dogs, Che and Nugget. We moved to Frederick in the summer of 2017 in need of a new vet. Every time I show up at P.A.W. I am surprised at the informed, loving treatment – for my dogs and for me. I know it isn’t just syrup because the bottom line is never about get all the tests just in case. It’s rational, reasonable, affordable, and compassionate. My dogs get excited when we arrive AT THE VET! The office is small, cozy, and inviting. We all feel welcome and at home there.

I’m so glad we found them. Even tho we live 1/2 an hour away I wouldn’t even consider switching to a different vet.

I have known Dr. Crystal Wormell for a long time. She has always been a dedicated veterinarian who puts her patients first. She has a top-notch staff and strives to provide both client and patient with the best possible care. She offers not only Western medicine but alternative as well (acupuncture, etc). I have trusted her over the many years and will continue to do so.

I’ve got two cats with chronic illnesses, so I wind up seeing Dr. Wormell frequently. She shows obvious care for my cats – often asking about all of them and not just the one she’s treating. She also does her best to make the visits as quick and painless for them as possible and charges reasonable rates so that it’s relatively painless for me too. I really couldn’t ask for anything more in a vet.
