Got started with Paws and Claws when I fostered to adopt thru Sun Coast but have stayed with them. Dr Culpepper is great and Cash gets all excited when we pull up and is happy to go in...

I am floored at how absolutely amazing Dr. Culpepper is. I was not just disappointed and annoyed, but heartbroken when my previous vet didn't care at all that my Winnie had developed a very serious ear infection overnight and refused to see her for 2 weeks claiming they were booked. Dr. Culpepper not only saw her that day despite never having her as a patient before, but she went beyond the ear infection and gave her a thorough exam, explained several aging related but somewhat minor issues she has, was so pleasant, and didn't rush me at all. Thanks to Dr. Culpepper, Winnie had a pain free and pleasant holiday with us. I cannot express how grateful I am. She will be my vet so long as I live here.

We recently changed veterinarians for my Shiba Inu to Paws and Claws, and so happy that we did! Dr Culpepper was welcoming and friendly, informative and engaging. I love that she got down on the ground with my pup to make him more comfortable. The staff is friendly and professional, the wait times accommodating. I highly recommend Paws and Claws for your fur babies! I think we finally found the BEST in Dunedin!

Dr Culpepper is Awesome. I am so happy I found her practice after moving to Clearwater. My boy Jess loves her and the staff. They all do a fabulous job of taking care of him. I love how she really does thorough exams, explains and shows you exactly what she is talking about. I never feel rushed and questions get answered. Very pleased!

I've been a client of vets for about 50 years. Cindy Culpepper is one of the two best, ever. Her practice runs on time, yet she takes all the time my dog and I need. Her staff are sharp, quick-witted, and alert. My dog, Gemma, is very very reactive, yet Cindy earned Gemma's trust. Good human!

Before getting my pup, I did a lot of research & read a lot of reviews to make sure I chose the right one. I can say without hesitation Dr. Culpepper has exceeded my expectations from the start and I have yet to meet her in person due to COVID19. She has guided use every step of the puppy stage & truly cares & advises honestly. The entire team is great & I appreciate all they do!

I moved here recently and am so thankful to have found this place. Dr. Culpepper and her staff are so caring and they listen! Easy process from begining to end. My 11 yr old cat needed surgery and I felt the vet I had taken her to before I found Dr. Culpepper was over charging. Dr. Culpepper was less expensive and by far much better service!! They truly moved animals here.

We are so pleased with both the Vet and the groomer Stephanie. Our dog is very hard to manage so we had sedation grooming. What a beautiful job they did, we couldn’t be happier ❤️ We thank you so much

Always treat our dog like she was their own. She actually "likes" to go to see her Vet. We feel very comfortable leaving her in such capable hands. Thanks again for all the good care she gets.

I have been going to Dr.Cullpepper since before she opened her own practice. She is always thorough and genuinely cares. The staff is great as well. I have 3 fur babies that receive all their care here and I wouldn't want to change that for anything.

Dr. Culpepper and everyone that I have met at Paws and Claws this week has been amazing. They took great care of my puppy and are all very friendly. On top of the stellar care given; they were extremely quick to get my dog into their schedule not once, but twice because of an emergency over course of two days without a prior appointment. I will not be taking my dogs anywhere else after this. Believe the good reviews, they're all true!

Very impressed with how the staff handled my situation. The doctor actually called me twice to give me info about my dog. This is the third vet we have seen in four years and can guarantee it will be pur last.

I would totally recommend them to anyone. They took such good care of my Tweetie and Skittles. Dr. Culpepper answered all my questions and the tech Erin was wonderful.

I just moved here and needed to find a vet and neighbors recommended Paws and Claws. Dr. Culpepper is very thorough; she called me to discuss everything about my dog's health in detail. And you can tell she really cares for her furry patients. COVID protocols made me feel very safe. I am very satisfied! Highly recommend Paws and Claws.

I've read all of these reviews and these are honest and sincere people when they rave about Dr Cindy. She is all that and so much more. I've been blessed to know her as a vet and a friend. Like so many others, we've followed her from a previous clinic and once you take your fur-kid here you'll know why. My beloved 16 1/2 yrs old Maltese who recently passed away was given his last 3 yrs by Dr Cindy. He loved her and I'm so grateful to have had more time with him. Three months ago I adopted my first rescue who was sick from the shelter. She was dumped at the shelter by a puppy mill and was terribly ill with an upper respiratory infection among many other complications. Her little body was worn out from having so many litters and zero medical care for 8 to 10 years. Dr Cindy and Sheila (who also came from her previous practice) went above and beyond to care for Baby and she is now living the life that she truly deserves. This rescue filled a void in my heart and is such a wonderful furbaby. Thank you Cindy, Sheila and your staff for having such a love for animals. Thank you for reading this review and feel secure in knowing your pets will be treated with a trustworthy and loving practice. You are in my prayers everyday!

Let’s start by saying I would recommend this place to anyone. The process to make your Appointment was easy and a short a time window for waiting than any other place in the county. So my appointment was just under two weeks out which worked out well because kitty was in heat when I made the appointment she was out but going right back in as the appointment happened. Once we got to the appointment we just pulled up called the phone number and they came out and got kitty. We filled out a few forms and then we left it at the door. They called me a few hours later actually the doctor called us a few hours later to let us know how the surgery went and let us know that kitty was doing well. They told us that we could come back and get her anytime after 130 to 430 which was amazing because I work and I had a meeting so it gave me a good time period To go get her. When we arrive to pick her up we called the phone number and they asked us a few things told us the recovery and brought kitty out to us. One thing that I thought that surprised me was I was going to have to pay for the cone, as most other places had told me we had to. I never received a bill for that part which I think is amazing that they do that for the community. Kitty did amazing I realize that they even trimmed her nails for me which was amazing because I thought I was doing it right and apparently I still had them too long. I like that they didn’t clip her ears to show that she was fixed because I hate that I think it’s inhumane but I know if some places have to do it I love that they didn’t do that to her it’s bad enough she already had to have surgery but at least she got to keep her full ears. We took Kitty home she did well through the night and the next morning they actually called to check on her and go over how everything was doing and explain things a little bit more detail and it was amazing the compassionate! the staff is so caring and everything with this company was anything you expected for your animals. Kitty is doing great and now we don’t have to worry about anymore sleepless night because of her being in heat! Thank you all for everything! You truly are one of the best services I have seen in a while!

I have been bringing my mutt, Carmela, here since the practice opened. Although we haven't seen Dr. Culpepper in person since COVID, she and her staff have made the inconvenience of not being able to go into the practice as straightforward as possible. Dr. Culpepper clearly loves her patients. She makes very thorough follow-up phone calls and I particularly appreciate not feeling pressured to order (and pay for) imaging or additional tests that might not really reveal anything about our slightly senior rescue dog. Smart lady and very personable. Verified by my dog!
