Animal care and procedures

Paws and Claws Veterinary Clinic provides a wide range of services, including:

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is nothing new of course; its use has been recorded as far back as 4000BC. However, its use in modern veterinary medicine is more recent, and has really gained momentum as a valuable treatment (either alone or in conjunction with more typical veterinary treatments and herbs) in the last 10 – 15 years.

  • Puppy School

    Would you like a calm, relaxed, happy dog that is easy to take to the vet? Look no further! Getting a new puppy can be such an exciting time, but it can also be plenty of hard work—lots to know and lots to remember. To help you, we’ve introduced Paws & Claws Puppy Boot Camp! […]

  • Desexing

    Desexing is one of those topics that most people know about, but nobody really wants to talk about. Did you know that Perth has the worst rate of desexing our animals compared with other Australian cities? To put it frankly, your animal’s health will benefit from being desexed and if you want to know “why?”, […]

  • General Check-Ups (Consultations)

    Nobody knows your animal as well as you do. Our experiences over the years have shown that if you feel your animal is “not right”, then you are always correct. A general check-up is a great way to help determine why you animal is not 100%. General check-ups are also a valuable way of assessing […]

  • Vaccination

    A healthy immune system is the best protection your animal has against disease. Vaccination is a way of promoting your animal’s immunity against certain diseases. Not every disease that your animal may contract has a vaccination, however many of the more serious diseases have a vaccination that has been developed to help promote immunity. Vaccinations […]

  • X-rays

    X-rays can be a valuable source of information which will help us provide the best treatment plan for your animal. Whilst we all think of bones and joints on an x-ray, the truth is that we just as frequently use x-rays for exquisite detail about lungs, heart, liver, intestine and teeth (as well as many […]

  • Surgical Facilities

    We routinely carry out surgical procedures. You may be amazed at the diversity and complexity of some of the surgical procedures that we are required to complete. From desexing a cat or repairing broken bones in a joeys’ leg, through to removing a tennis ball that “Ace” the Golden Retriever managed to swallow and get […]

  • Microchips

    We are regularly called upon to both implant microchips, and scan animals that have been lost to see if they have a microchip. Microchips are a great way to ensure that if your animal is unlucky enough to get lost, they can always be identified as belonging to you. Almost all veterinary clinics and Shire […]

  • Flea and Tick Treatments

    Fleas and ticks are a source of significant skin itch and irritation for a lot of our animals (and fleas pass on a tapeworm as well). There are a large variety of flea and tick treatments, and we are happy to discuss which of these is most appropriate for your pet. There are a few […]

  • Intestinal Worms

    Often hidden from view and often forgotten, intestinal worms are a fact of life for our animals and regular worming programs are very beneficial to their health. The age of your animal, its lifestyle, diet and other factors determine which worming products and which worming program is most likely to suit, so you have a […]

  • Stem Cell Treatment

    Picture your pet comfortable, happy and enjoying life. Isn’t this really what our bond and relationship with our pet is all about? You may have heard a lot of talk lately about Stem Cell Treatment, and just what it can do to provide great improvement in quality of life. Well, it is true. The value […]

  • Dental Treatment

    Dental disease (more correctly called Periodontal Disease) has become increasingly recognised as a major source of unwellness in our cats and dogs. It is estimated that about 80% of cats and dogs over 3 years of age will accumulate tartar, which represents bacterial infection accumulating over the tooth and underneath the margins of the gum. […]

  • Pet Insurance

    We all know vet bills can be expensive and if unexpected accidents or illnesses occur, you want to be able to focus on your pet’s treatment and recovery rather than the financial burden. Advances in veterinary medicine are matching that of human medicine which means we can do alot more for your pet than ever […]

  • Kitten Training

    Contrary to popular opinion, it’s possible to teach kittens some useful skills, such as recognising their name. The earlier you start training, the greater the chance of success. Training Kittens Whilst kittens don’t need training in how to be cute, they can need help when it comes to going to the toilet in the right […]
