The Healing Paws Story

“Let all that you do be done in Love.” – 1 Corinthians 16:14

Carrie Vigeant was a small-town girl with a big dream who found the motivation to build a career in veterinary medicine from medical adversity.

“I looked forward to returning home to my refuge and being enveloped in the loving warmth of my parents and my many pets. The faithful, accepting companionship of those pets sustained me through childhood and motivated me to dedicate my life’s work to healing animals.”

Carrie Vigeant, DVM

What Makes Healing Paws Fear-Free?

We go to great lengths to make sure your dog or cat doesn’t have to encounter other animals. You’ll come through the entrance and go directly to a species-specific exam room. Then, all procedures will be conducted in the room, with you present. You’ll even pay in the room before you and your pet leave through a separate, designated exit.

These are some of the things that make our veterinarian and veterinary hospital Fear-Free Certified.
