Educational Tracks

The staff at Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital® is committed to not only caring for your pets, but also educating the community, so they are better able to make decisions for their pets. We have begun a project to create educational videos to answer those questions most often asked of us. This will be an ongoing project in which we continue to develop an extensive video library to answer some of the most frequently asked questions.

If you have suggestions of a video you would like for us to develop, please complete the attached, short form letting us know what you would like to see. Hopefully, you will find these videos helpful and educational.
