Troutdale Veterinary Hospital Announces Preferred Vendor Partnership With PETCO

TROUTDALE, OR--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - Paws and Claws Pet Medical Center announced that the animal hospital is a preferred partner for PETCO, the pet supplies store. When PETCO has sick animals, the store brings them to Paws and Claws Pet Medical Center for urgent and emergency care. While Paws and Claws is not the primary veterinary care provider, PETCO frequently relies on the veterinary hospital because of the hospital's advanced technology, spacious facilities and modern equipment. Paws and Claws Pet Medical Center provides routine wellness care, vaccinations, pet dental care, animal surgery, spay and neuter operations and exotic vet care for pets in Troutdale and Gresham, Oregon.

Troutdale veterinarian Dr. Ken DeRemer announced that Paws and Claws Pet Medical Center is a preferred veterinary partner for PETCO. The medical center provides urgent and emergency care services for PETCO animals.

"We are proud to partner with PETCO to provide quality veterinary services to pets in need of urgent or emergency care," said Dr. DeRemer. "PETCO shares our commitment to promoting responsible pet ownership and providing the highest quality care for sick animals. As part of our partnership, we provide detailed records of all animal illnesses, treatment and veterinary attention to ensure that all pets receive compassionate, responsible veterinary care."

While Paws and Claws Pet Medical Center is not the primary veterinary care provider, PETCO frequently relies on the animal hospital to provide urgent and emergency care when other local clinics cannot do so.

The Troutdale veterinary hospital includes spacious facilities that are often better able to accommodate pets. According to Dr. DeRemer, the vet hospital's advanced technology and exotic experience is also an asset in diagnosing and treating PETCO's animals.

"PETCO frequently relies on our vet hospital because of our experience and knowledge in treating birds and exotic pets," said Dr. DeRemer. "Thanks to some of our exotic and avian specific technology, we are able to precisely diagnose health conditions and efficiently administer comprehensive treatments to keep pets healthy."

Dr. DeRemer also supports PETCO's "Think Adoption First" philosophy.

"With so many wonderful pets in need of a loving home, we are proud to partner with a store that values pet adoption as much as we do," said Dr. DeRemer. "Like PETCO, we encourage all potential animal owners to consider adoption whenever possible."

In addition to partnering with PETCO, the animal hospital provides comprehensive veterinary care services to Gresham, Oregon pet owners. These services include annual wellness examinations, vaccination protocols, spay neuter operations, cat and dog surgery and dental care.

"Our wellness program is essential to keeping pets healthy," said Dr. DeRemer. "Regular examinations can identify a potential health concern before it seriously impacts a pet's health. Additionally, we maintain comprehensive records on animal vaccinations to ensure your pet is up-to-date on all required vaccines. Prevention truly is the best medicine for a healthy, active pet."

The animal hospital cares for dogs, cats, pocket pets and exotic animals.
