What to Expect at Paws & Claws Pet Medical Center in Troutdale
Here at Paws & Claws Pet Medical Center, we have a passion for pets. Our veterinarian team offers expert care with state-of-the-art tools, and they stay current on the best medical practices. This animal hospital is convenient to both the Troutdale and Gresham communities in Oregon. In addition to caring for cats and dogs, our veterinary practice is experienced in and offers care for a variety of pets, including rabbits, birds, small mammals, pocket pets, and reptiles.
We like it best when we can be introduced to your pet for a routine physical. That way, a health baseline is established, and any changes in health or behavior can be monitored on future visits. The comprehensive physical will include a hands-on evaluation, and could include lab work or x-rays if needed. Teeth and gums will be checked and cleaned if necessary. If you have a written medical history for your pet, we encourage you to bring it to the first visit. If a written history isn’t available, we will take an oral history from you. We will update any vaccinations that are due to your pet. Comprehensive examinations like these are the best way to keep pets healthy, find health issues early, and manage them properly.
There will probably be times between routine visits that fall under the category of emergency care. Sickness, poison, and broken bones, among other concerns, call for immediate action. Our veterinary staff stands ready to accommodate any emergencies that arise during their business hours. For any emergencies outside those hours, we have relationships with other veterinarians and pet hospitals in the area, and we will promptly refer you to them.
We offer many types of surgery for your pet, including routine spaying and neutering, emergency surgery, orthopedic surgery, dental surgery, and biopsies. We are qualified to administer and carefully monitor anesthesia, assuring the safety and comfort of your pet.
We all want what is best for your pet. There may be times that we refer your pet to a specialist to evaluate a serious illness. We know how to find the appropriate veterinarians for various illnesses and will put you in touch with them.
