First-Time Clients

We can’t wait to meet you and your pet; we do anything we can to ensure you and your pet are

COMFORTABLE.

Since pets age at a much quicker rate than humans, these visits will become increasingly important in the early detection of any changes in their health. Save time and fill out your paperwork online.

PAWS is proud to serve the Indian Head, MD area. We always strive to become your partner in your pet’s healthcare.

Our team is filled with the best professionals imaginable to create not only the best veterinary hospital, but the most compassionate. We want to exceed your expectations with friendly, knowledgeable staff, minimal wait time, and high-tech care with a tender touch. We offer services from annual wellness care to advanced medicine and surgery.

At Potomac Animal Wellness Services, we strive to always keep your pet healthy and up-to-date. Our annual exams (yearly physicals) are comprehensive and performed by our veterinarians. They examine all your pet’s organ systems (such as eyes, ears, mouth, heart, lungs, skin, abdomen, etc). We also are able to update all your vaccines during your physical.
In order to ensure your new pet gets the best possible start towards a lifetime of good health in their new home, we recommend introducing us promptly to your furry friend. At this first appointment, your veterinarian will check for the following and discuss any and all of your concerns regarding your new buddy. These services are also provided at your annual exam (yearly physical):

  • Clear eyes, ears and nose
  • Heart and respiration
  • Abdomen palpation
  • Proper bite placement
  • Any signs of infection or parasites
  • Proper growth and development
  • Presence of hernia
  • Initial vaccinations and a proper vaccination schedule tailored to your pet

To ensure that our staff has time to answer all your questions, we’d like to complete any needed paperwork before your scheduled appointment time. Thus, please arrive 10 minutes early so that we can review your paperwork, and to ensure continuity of your care, please bring any previous documentation with you. See you soon!

For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet by placing on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.

We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept most major debit and credit cards. We also accept Care Credit, a charge account with rates as low as 0% and provide longer payment options. 

PAWS is able to treat dogs and cats. We are happy to provide you with referrals for other furry companions, just give us a call!

Get the best care for your best friend.
