PAWS Animal Shelter treats health issues that are apparent when animals arrive or conditions that develop during their time at our facility. Owner surrenders to PAWS Animal Shelter often come with their medical history and records. animals that we pull from city shelters often come without much history and we must evaluate visually from experience. PAWS Animal Shelter will always divulge any conditions that are known and treatment protocols. We partner with quality vets for the very best for animals in our care.
Please be aware that there can be a very common temporary condition that affects many animals in communal living environments: kennels, boarding facilities, etc. Kennel Cough and Diarrhea/Giardia are easily spread but also easily treated. Your new animal may or may not have been exposed so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these common and very treatable temporary conditions.
Make sure your resident animal is current with shots, especially bortatella before visiting PAWS Animal Shelter.
