We provide high quality, compassionate medical care in a unique combination of traditional, mobile and home environments. Our state of the art mobile unit contains many of the amenities of a traditional clinic and provides our clients with the opportunity to stay at home with their pets for all of their veterinary care or, if they choose, they can come to us. Our new facility (opening August 2017) is designed using Fear Free practice standards that keep patient, client and staff comfort in mind. Our doctors and staff have access to a fully stocked pharmacy, digital radiography, in house and send out labs, class IV laser therapy and a mobile ultrasound technician. We are members of the American Association of Feline Practitioners and are known for our strong focus on multi-modal osteoarthritis care in both canines and felines. Our practice cares for cats and dogs as well as adding some diversity with small ruminants and camelids.
At just 3 years old, Healing Paws won the Best Veterinarian in Cumberland County in 2016! Our clients know how much we care as we enjoy spending time getting to know them at each appointment (traditional appointments are 30 minutes and house calls are at least one hour in length). This time is used for client education and to tailor treatment to each specific pet and owner’s needs.
If you are looking to live in an area with a small-town feel without sacrificing all the amenities of a larger city, Carlisle is the place for you! Located on the I-81 corridor, our beautiful town is spacious with a lively town center filled with restaurants, nightlife, shopping, events and more. Are you a hiker? The Appalachian trail is practically in your back yard. Larger cities are only a 30 minute drive – including our state capital of Harrisburg! Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. are also within driving distance.

Additional Salary Information: competitive salary based on experience
Healing Paws provides high quality, compassionate medical care in both traditional and house call settings. We are located in Carlisle, PA along the I-81 corridor. This is a beautiful area combining rural life with big town/small city benefits. Shopping, jobs, and restaurants are plentiful. We are 30 minutes from the state capital of Harrisburg and 2 hours or less from Baltimore, Washington D.C...., and Philadelphia! Family and social life is important for our staff's happiness and productivity so your schedule will allow you weekend and evening time to play in these places!
Our practice philosophy is dedicated to becoming a part of each client's family and to give them a veterinary experience like they've never had. We do this by taking time during each appointment to talk to the client about their lives and how their pet plays a role in their lives. Then, using Fear Free methods and striving to provide the best emotional, mental, and medical environment we can for the pets, we change the way owners experience veterinary medicine. This is an exciting practice as you have the opportunity to provide both excellent quality mobile care and work in a newly built Fear Free veterinary hospital! Our patient load is heavy in both felines and senior dogs but we also practice on small ruminants and camelids. This year, we we hope to add small mammals and exotics as well. Each patient at Healing Paws Veterinary Care is given the best medical options and with that comes great reward to doctors, staff, clients, and our patients!
