The PAWS International Clinic

As 2018 ended, Paws for Compassion started working with an international veterinarian practicing in Ho Chi Minh City. It wasn’t long before the two entities formed a bond over their love for animals.

During the whole of 2019, they worked together on mass sterilization and rescue projects in Da Nang, Hoi An and Tam Ky, and decided to open a clinic in central Vietnam to help more animals in need.

As the first international veterinary clinic in central Vietnam, we aim to increase the standard of veterinary care in the area and train local veterinary staff by providing hands-on training by an experienced vet. By providing regular training, we hope more animals will get a high standard of care.

Dr. Neva Stefanović

VETERINARY SURGEON

Meet our Senior Veterinarian, and one of Paws International Clinic’s founders, Dr. Nevena. Dr. Nevena grew up in Serbia, where she graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Belgrade, Serbia, to become a veterinarian. She fulfilled a 2-year course/student exchange program in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Wroclaw, Poland and gained most of her experience in different clinics and universities in Serbia, Poland and Norway.

Little did she know that she would be moving to Vietnam to become a practicing veterinarian at an International Vet Clinic in Ho Chi Minh City. After only 2 years in Vietnam, Nevena opened a one-of-a-kind International Clinic, Paws International Clinic. We can tell you without a doubt, there is no better veterinarian in Vietnam.

Dr. Tân grew up in Ninh Thuan province and studied in his hometown where he graduated from HCMC Nong Lam University in October 2019. He then moved to Ho Chi Minh City to work at a well-known international clinic for over a year, where he met Dr. Nevena. During his tenure, he gained a wealth of practical skills and knowledge through working side-by-side with many international veterinarians.

Dr. Tân has been with us since the very beginning, and it has been a wonderful journey. Your pets are in the best hands!
