Why Choose Us?
We know you have a busy life but still want to take the very best care of your pets – we make that possible! Mobile veterinary visits offer the following benefits:
- Less fear for our 4 legged friends – their exam takes place in familiar surroundings!
- Convenient! We come to you!
- Personalized attention based on your pet’s home environment.
- Family-oriented, personal and expert veterinary care!
Here is a fact we hope you’ll sink your teeth into: preventing periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). By protecting your pet’s dental health, you can extend their life by three years! Along with obesity, dental disease is a leading (and preventable) illness that takes the lives of far too many pets far too early. To make matters even more pressing, over 80% of dogs and 50% of cats over the age of three will develop periodontal disease.
To be direct and to the point, I have made a bulleted list of important points.
- Veterinarians (and their staff) are considered ‘essential businesses’. We have an obligation to protect your pets and public health. But need cooperation from the public in order to continue services.
- Paws & Claws has the unique feature of seeing patients with the mobile truck! It allows easy disinfection and arrives at your house. Perfect in the time of home isolation! With that being said, I have had to modify the appointment process.
- If you are feeling ill, coughing, sneezing, fever, have been in contact with someone that has been sick, or even THINK you may be sick, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be honest when scheduling the appointment. While I need to protect myself, I need to protect my clients as well. It is important to me to see animals that need care especially for elderly owners that can’t drive. I promise to do the same for you.
- Histories will be taken over the phone at the time of scheduling or at arrival to your home. The animal will then visit the truck where a physical exam will be performed. You will then be contacted with recommendations and the treatment plan. This is to avoid heavy foot traffic through the truck and maintain social distancing guidelines
- After samples are collected, treatments performed, I will contact you to reiterate the plan and treatments and your pet can go back into your home. Payment will be collected via Venmo, credit card, or check with as little contact as possible.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I am available during business hours via phone, email and text. Although if I do not answer, I am likely with another client/patient, or driving. I can’t say I have addressed EVERYthing of importance in this message. But I hope it has provided some guidance.

Dr. Carrie Bunger
I have called Madison home for the last 18 years, having lived previously in Nebraska, Indiana, and Montana. I graduated from Concordia College (Moorhead, MN) in 2001, with a major in biology and minors in Chemistry and Psychology. Seeking a new adventure, I moved to Madison to work in a research lab, but, always wanting to be a veterinarian, returned to school and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010.
Since graduating, I have mainly focused on preventative care in general practice with cats, dogs, and pockets pets. However the opportunities do not cease there. This career field has led to a wide variety of experiences from ER medicine to additional training in anesthesia/analgesia to cat-only practice to even mentoring pre-veterinary students on a study abroad program in South Africa. Veterinary medicine is always an adventure!
My interests include running (especially with my dog), swimming, quilting, fishing, Wisconsin sports (Go Bucky! Go Pack Go!) and traveling. I have visited South Africa, Argentina, Chile, Canada, France, and, most recently, Australia, where I went scuba diving along the Great Barrier Reef. My house is full of activity with one husband (Matt, an assistant professor at UW), one dog (Ubu), and three cats (Striker!, Vinnie, and Roxy, aka Tootsie).
