As a provider of services for animals, we strive to be helpful to our clients plan for the unexpected. This is why we have created a number of helpful articles, videos and handouts to educate or remind pet owners to plan for the unexpected.
For any of the items listed below, all that is required is to simply stop by the hospital at 2556 E. Broadway Street, Pearland, Texas 77581. You can find us on Broadway (F.M. 518) between Pearland Parkway and Liberty Drive.
We now have magnets for your refrigerator that lists contact information for all things pet related. From our phone number to emergency website address with a list of emergency animal clinics in the Greater Houston area. Other items on the list include the 288 Animal Emergency Clinic, Pearland Animal Control, Pet Poison Help Line, Animal Legal Hotline, Traveling with pets and Emergency Disaster Information Hotline. These too are available for pick-up for FREE.
We also have another free card that can be picked up at Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital. These cards are designed to be carried with you so, should it be needed, others will know you have a pet at home that needs to be cared for. We often try to avoid thinking that we may become injured or just unable to return home. But it does happen. Please stop by the clinic and pick up one or more of these free cards and share them with anyone you know that lives alone and has pets. No obligation and you don’t have to be a client of Claws & Paws. It could save the life of that pet.
We have created a line of Educational Videos on our YouTube Channel, affectionately called Educational Tracks. We frequently add videos to this channel. About once a month. If you have suggestions for a future video you’d like to see, please email us at Newsletter@CPVH.com and we’ll see if we can put one together for our subscribers.
This one is probably more convenient than helpful. We have worked out an agreement with Poop Troops to offer one free month of yard pet waste pickup, with no strings attached. All you have to do is contact them at 877.930.POOP (7667) and tell them you heard about them from Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital® in Pearland. When signing up for this free month of service, you will be asked for credit card information, but you can cancel at any time. Many of our staff have signed up for this service and are very, very happy with not only the service received, but the customer service when dealing with staff of this company. This company is based out of Frisco, Texas, but they are currently expanding their service area to include the Greater Houston area.
We also offer “Firemen, Save Our Pets” stickers that you can place on your window in the front and back of your home. If there is a fire, or other emergency, this sticker tells firemen that you have pets and how many you have. This sticker also lets the Emergency Responder know they can bring your pet to Claws & Paws and we’ll keep them until you are able to return to our facility to retrieve them. It is one less thing you will need to worry about in the wake of a disaster. Again, there is no obligation on your part and you do not need to be a client of Claws & Paws to benefit from this service.
Possibly, our most helpful items is our handouts listing each Emergency Veterinary Hospital in the Greater Houston area, including an overview map with approximate locations mapped out as well. You can stop by and pick up a free copy, click on the image to the left to print one, or download our Free Mobile App and have the information available at the tap of a button. With our Mobile App, you can get turn-by-turn directions if you have your GPS enabled. You never know when you’ll be away from home with your pet and have an emergency where you need to get to the closest Animal Emergency Facility. We think this will help you locate the closest facility.
