Products & Services

Advanced Diagnostic Services

Radiographs (X-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. X-rays are useful in examining your pet’s bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. An X-ray can spot a fractured bone, detect tumors, help with the diagnosis of heartworm disease, or locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet’s intestine or stomach. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound, X-rays can accurately diagnose problems, making treatment faster and easier for your pet and your veterinarian.


Vaccines

Vaccinations are not only safe and effective; they are a fundamental piece of your pet’s preventive healthcare plan.

PAW’s vaccination protocol follows American Animal Hospital Association guidelines and is carefully tailored to the lifestyle and particular health needs of your pet. We truly believe that our carefully balanced approach is the best means to prevent infectious disease as well as the possibility of your pet having an adverse reaction to a vaccine.


Surgical Services

We understand that surgery is not an easy experience for you or your pet. At Progressive Animal Wellness we strive to ensure your pet’s surgical procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We provide our clients with a clear understanding of why procedures are necessary, what they entail, proper post-operative care, and any other information our clients might need to make the best decision for their pets.

Always a great experience. Left our other veterinarian due to their lack of service. This has been a breath of fresh air. They are kind, genuine, and take excellent care of our furry family members.

Dr. Shagensky and his staff made one of the hardest days of my life, saying goodbye to my pup Koz, as comfortable as it possibly could have been. They explained everything patiently and thoroughly, making sure we were comfortable at every step. The compassion and care that they show truly makes a difference and should not go unthanked. They are amazing and I wouldn't go anywhere else...and I even live in Maine now!

Customer Testimonials

My cat AND girlfriend absolutely loved these guys. They went for Bernard's first checkup. He is a ragdoll that's about a year and a half old. Everybody was very nice and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend them already for all you animals needs.


I suffered an infection in my neck following a bite by my cousin on Labor Day while in Wash., DC. Progressive Animal Wellness, VCA Avon Emergency Animal Hospital, Drs. Dudek, Michael & Shagensky, and the staff at each facility provided me with first rate medical care. Due to their efforts, I expect to have a 110% recovery -- the bionics will make me better than ever! Thank you!
