Wellness Care & Preventative Medicine
If you are in need of a Gresham or Troutdale veterinarian, the Paws & Claws Medical Center is here for you! Owning a dog or a cat is a serious responsibility and regular wellness and preventive care can help them to live long, healthy, and active lives. Our staff is proud to serve the greater Gresham area, and we believe that a regular veterinary exam is a key part of your pet's overall wellness and care.
Please do not wait until your pet has a problem and then seek care. Having a regular vet that knows your pet and their unique health requirements can make a huge difference in the quality of care that they receive. Regular wellness exams allow our staff to get to know your pet and understand their personality and needs on a deeper level; this knowledge lets us offer comprehensive care from day one and it can make a significant difference in the event of an emergency or a serious illness.
Just like we need to go to the doctor for regular check-ups our pets require the same level of care. With annual wellness exams, your veterinarian can ensure that their vaccinations are up to date, that their nutritional needs are being met, and that they are maintaining a healthy weight and activity level. If your pet suffers from any significant medical conditions, regular care is essential.
Our entire staff is dedicated to the health and happiness of our canine and feline patients and will work with you to ensure that their needs are being met. We encourage all of the owners that we work with to give their pets healthy and nutritious food in the proper amount and provide them with adequate levels of exercise and socialization. As your pet ages, their needs will change as will their daily habits and level of activity. Older pets often gain an unhealthy amount of weight due to their lower activity levels and slowing metabolism. Regular checks with your vet can help your pet's health stay on track and a strong overall health profile can positively contribute to a long life that is active and happy.
If you have recently adopted a companion animal or young pet, it is important that they receive a regular veterinary exam. Please call us today at 503-661-1833 to schedule a wellness exam for your dog or cat. The Paws & Claws Medical Center is conveniently located at 26745 S.E. Stark Street in Troutdale.
