Who We Are

A few words about us...

Keeping your pet healthy in Columbia, Hanover, Ellicott City, Linthicum, Elkridge and surrounding areas…

Sharing your life with an animal is one of the greatest experiences on earth. It’s about so much more than just providing food and shelter. It’s about opening your home and your heart to a helpless creature and baring your very soul in the process. It’s about making sacrifices and becoming vulnerable. Yet the gifts you receive in return – unconditional love, unwavering loyalty and undying devotion – are worth their weight in gold.

Nobody understands the unbreakable bond you share with your animal companion quite like our dedicated team. In fact, it’s what we’ve built our Columbia and Ellicott City practice on. Our goal in everything we do – whether it’s a routine checkup or advanced critical care – is to improve the life of each patient we serve and strengthen the connection they share with their loving owners. We have a genuine devotion to the health and welfare of animals and we believe that all creatures deserve exceptional care and attention.

From the moment you walk through the doors of our Columbia and Ellicott City clinic, you’ll know something’s different. We always remember our clients and patients because we take the time to really get to know them, learning about their lives and understanding the unique personality of each precious pet. We strive to make vet visits as stress-free as possible and we accomplish this goal through gentle, reassuring handling and a truly compassionate touch. And, of course, we’ve got plenty of yummy treats to help win over our patients (even our feline friends!).

At Claws N Paws, a trusted Columbia and Ellicott City veterinarian, we are extremely thorough in our approach. We work hard to quickly diagnose issues so that we can focus on keeping our patients as happy and healthy as possible. Our staff is well-informed, friendly and patient, always taking the time to explain your options and providing guidance to help you be the best pet parent you can be. We want to work with you to help you make the best decisions for your family and your budget.

Our clients may come to us for the extensive services and treatment options we offer, but it’s the warm, personalized care that keeps them coming back again and again. We love our patients just as much as our very own animal companions and it’s evident in everything we do. We’d love the opportunity to demonstrate just how valuable this type of partnership can be, and invite you to stop by our Columbia and Ellicott City clinic anytime….we’ll be waiting!

      I've been bringing my baby boy Todd here for years and would never consider any place else. The Tech's are an amazing, compassionate well educated team that are led by the best vet I've ever encountered, Dr. Singh. In my past 40 years I've never met a team so dedicated to the health, wellness and well being of any furbaby. Thank you for taking such great care of my fur baby while taking the time to any the many questions I always have.
