The PAWS Clinic
The PAWS Clinic also operates as a fully functional non-profit veterinary clinic. By having local pet owners using our services, we are able to generate small revenues which are all put back into PAWS and allow us to conduct numerous field clinics around the island each month.
Our team of veterinarians are perhaps the most qualified on the island. With extensive, international experience across of range of specialisms including Skin Care and Bone and Structural surgery, your pets are in the very best of hands. Our clinic is open to all and everyone – whether for a quick check-up, annual booster injections or just to say hello.
Services Include, but are not limited to:
- Blood Testing – CBC, Chemical Analysis and Blood Parasites
- Rabies Titre Test (RFFIT and FAVN )
- Urine Test

We all brush our teeth; our pets however are another story! Our teeth cleaning service not only gets your pets teeth looking bright and clean, but also helps keep them healthy and prevents bad breath and infections.
Our standard opening times for the PAWS clinic are as follows:
Monday to Saturday: 9am to 6pm
Holidays: We observe most Thai national holidays.
It is always best to call first for an appointment on 076 264 504.
The majority of the charity work carried out by PAWS is done in conjunction with the mobile clinics. These clinics are able to get into the temples and down to the beaches to carry out spay and neuter operations on-site, rather than transporting the animals from one location to another.
The mobile clinics can also be used to visit local schools to educate children on the care and control of both stray and pet animals, as well as local community leaders to educate them on the care and control of strays. By having a focal point of contact in the field, we can obtain public support to collect animals for treatment and release and to lobby the local and central government for better and more humane controls and management for stray animals in Phuket and Thailand.
The mobile clinics are all staffed by full-time vet and clinical assistants, who are trained in the preparation of animals for surgery and simple medical techniques. The on-going field clinics are necessary if we are to be successful in the control of the stray animal population on the Island of Phuket.
Field Clinics can take place anywhere, at any time – on beaches, in temples, on remote islands, in villages, in schools. You name it; we’ve carried out a field clinic there. We have even carried out a field clinic INSIDE a human hospital!
Our fully qualified veterinary team are on hand to take care of your pets – whether its a simple check up, or something more extensive – you can rest assured your pets are in the safest hands possible.
