About Bear Paw Veterinary Service

Bear Paw Veterinary Service was founded by Dr. John Leeds in 1978 and was primarily a large animal clinic. Dr. Sam Ives purchased the business from John in 1992 and started to offer small animal services in 1993. In January 1995, Dr. Paul and Mary Ann McCann purchased the business and continued seeing small and large animals.

Bear Paw Veterinary Service is known for its excellent doctors and team members. We strive to provide quality service and educate our clients whenever possible. Our team of 15 can provide services, including basic health, surgical procedures, and internal medicine cases. Large animal services include reproductive services, herd health, lameness, and dental balancing. The diversity of our services and availability makes us easy to work with. Dr. Paul McCann obtained his Certification in Animal Chiropractic in 2014. Our doctors strive to be on the cutting edge of animal health.
