Exotic Pet Care From Your Troutdale & Gresham Veterinarians

Dogs and cats are not the only pets in Troutdale, and they are not the only patients we treat, either. At Paws & Claws Pet Medical Center, our veterinarians also treat exotic pets with fur, scales, and feathers. If you have an exotic pet, they need regular veterinary care just as much as a dog, cat, or human. Make sure your entire family gets the preventative care they need, from an established local veterinarian who can keep track of their unique health needs. We offer veterinary care for dozens of species of exotic pets and pocket pets in the Troutdale area. At Paws & Claws, you can do the following:


From backyard hens and roosters to cockatoos and canaries, your feathered pets are always welcome at Paws & Claws Pet Medical Center. Your bird veterinarian will help you set up or improve your bird’s habitat for optimal physical and mental health, including a spacious, clean cage and a diet with the nutrition and hydration your birds need. We offer regular veterinary exams for birds in Troutdale, including comprehensive evaluations of their beaks, feathers, skin, eyes, ears, movements, and more. Our goal is to immediately detect any signs of illness or change so that your bird has time to get the treatment they need. We also offer preventative care to prevent common illnesses and nutritional deficiencies among pet birds.

Small Mammals

Rabbits are the third most common pet in the country, and our veterinarians are happy to serve them and many other small mammals at our Troutdale veterinary center. We will help you make sure your small mammal gets enough space to jump, run, dig, play, and be themselves, as well as a balanced diet that includes plenty of hydration and species-appropriate food in the right proportions. Smaller mammals need exercise, regular attention and stimulation, and healthy food just like larger pets do, and it is important to make sure your pets are getting exactly what they need to thrive for years to come.

Pocket Pets

Hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, and other pocket pets are also welcome at Paws & Claws. We believe no pet is too small to matter, so we work hard to maintain a good quality of life for your pocket-size companions, including regular preventative care and immediate diagnostics for injuries and illnesses. It is important to call us as soon as your hamster, rat, mouse, or other pocket pet is showing any signs of illness or injury, from sneezing and coughing to lethargy and lack of appetite. Of course, we also recommend regular exams with a trusted Troutdale vet, who can keep track of your pocket pet’s weight, skin, fur, eyes, nails, and other important criteria.

Reptile Care

Snakes, lizards, and turtles may not have fur, but they are beloved members of many families throughout Troutdale, Gresham, and the surrounding area. Fortunately, our veterinary team at Paws & Claws Pet Medical Center includes talented reptile vets, who can help you serve your cold-blooded pet’s needs. Your pet’s Troutdale reptile veterinarian will make sure you understand their unique needs, including species-specific requirements for their habitat, diet, heating, lighting, everyday enrichment, and more. We also step in when your pet shows signs of distress, injury, or personality change, and we encourage you to call us at the first sign of trouble.
