Types of Pets Seen

We at Paws & Claws Pet Medical Center care for a variety of animals, including:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Rabbits
  • Birds (including chickens)
  • Small Mammals
  • Pocket Pets
  • Reptiles

At this time we are not accepting any new clients for exotic appointments. Due to overwhelming demand we are unable to see additional rabbits, birds, reptiles and small mammals. 

We are happy to see your fuzzy, feathery, and scaly friends. Our appointments for exotic animals are 45 minutes to ensure we have enough time to fully evaluate the housing and nutrition of your pet. We work hard to have the appropriate equipment for treating exotics. We will help you with any problems your pet may encounter, and can refer you to an exotics specialist if your pet requires advanced treatment.

Troutdale Veterinarians Provide Domestic and Exotic Vet Services

We treat such a wide array of small animals that every time you come to visit you are likely to see some wonderful animals in the waiting room. Below you will find a list of some of the animals we treat and some of their common illnesses.


Man’s best friend is susceptible to a variety of illnesses and diseases that are mostly preventable. Always follow the recommendation of our veterinarian to keep your dog fully immunized; regular check-ups will ensure that your dog stays happy and healthy. Do not forget flea, tick and heartworm prevention medication.


Immunizations are as important to cats as they are to dogs. Feline leukemia and other cat related diseases are easily prevented with regular vaccinations. Talk to our veterinary staff about heartworm prevention if your cat is outdoors during the spring and summer. Schedule yearly visits with our veterinarian for a check-up to make sure that your cat stays healthy all year long.

Exotic Pets

Reptiles are less than common pets but ones that deserve as much care as any others. From snakes to iguanas, an exotic vet at our clinic in Troutdale can take care of their needs. The vet will do regular fecal exams to make sure your scaly pet is parasite and worm free. Additionally, we can provide information on housing needs that will fluctuate depending on weather you have a gecko, snake, or water dragon.

Pocket Pets

From ferrets to hamsters and birds, these cute little pets also require regular check-ups at our veterinary hospital. Small pets such as these are prone to getting ear mites and a variety of other illnesses like cancer and adrenal disease. An avian vet at our clinic can ensure that your bird, even your chickens, stay healthy and parasite free

At Paws and Claws in Troutdale, we recognize that your pets are an important part of your life and are members of your family. This is why we are committed to helping educate pet owners about the housing, dietary and exercise needs of different types of pets. We know that prevention is of paramount importance when it comes to the health of your pet which is why we are as committed to sharing our knowledge about the common illnesses and conditions that affect different animals. If you need an exotic vet or a check-up for your cat, we can help. Call us at (503) 661-1833 to schedule an appointment. Our veterinarians all have different areas of focus, so please let us know ahead of time what type of animal you will be brining in.
