My first experience with paws was with my cat that was really in serious trouble and they did a fantastic job the surgery would have cost me $1200 at the vet but instead it only cost me 250
My next experience was with our dog also needed surgery cost 200 and was is going to cost over 1000 I strongly support and recommend them

My healthy cat went to PAWS for 2 day slight lack of coordination & balance issue. Male Vet said cat was poisoned & asked if around rat poison, antifreeze, or insecticide. Told to do FIV test & told my cat was FIV+. PAWS didn't know what was causing ataxia. The Vet was extremely MANIPULATIVE & provided "FALSE INFO" about FIV to FORCE me to euthanize cat. Vet was very PUSHY about the need to euthanize cat for FIV+. Told it was the "humane thing to do" & "the right thing to do". PAWS said they focus on FIV. 3 employees said this! Cat had FIV "vaccination" so FIV test was a "false positive"! They never asked & I forgot. Next day realized "Advantage Multi" caused "moxidectin toxicity" (side effect). In days ataxia would have cleared. WISH Vet had mentioned "Flea and Tick medications" ARE "insecticides". I didn't know. PAWS euthanized my cat without signed & proper filled out paperwork. I miss my cat very much now and have to live with what PAWS made me do for the rest of my life. Avoid PAWS for serious issues at all cost before they do this to YOUR cat.
