About Us

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 service in 1993. In January of 1995 Dr. Paul and Mary Ann McCann purchased the business and continued seeing both small and large animals.

Bear Paw Veterinary Service is known for its excellent doctors and team members. We strive to provide quality service and look to educate our clients when ever possible. Our team of 15 is able to provide services including basic health, surgical procedures, and internal medicine cases. Large animal services include reproductive services, herd health, lameness’s, and dental balancing. The diversity of our services and availability makes us easy to work with.
