COVID Updates: We are limiting the number of people entering the hospital. All visitors must be escorted into the building by a staff member. Please text us upon arrival. Our exam rooms are limited to 2 pet owners at a time and we are utilizing curbside care for many services. We ask for your patience as we strive to keep you, your pets and our staff safe and healthy.

Pet of the Month – Polo

Patient Corner, Pet of the month -

Parkway Vet - Lake Oswego - POTM - Cat

This handsome cat is Polo. Polo recently presented to us for a painful growth on his hip. X-rays showed a lytic or “moth eaten” lesion on his femur, or thigh bone, near his pelvis. A biopsy of the lesion was consistent with osteosarcoma or bone cancer. Polo had a CT scan to rule out any evidence of metastasis which was negative. He then was ultrasounded by Dr. Wood, the cardiologist at ACG, to make sure his heart was okay for surgery (he has a mild heart murmur). Dr. Wood gave the okay so Polo’s hind leg and a portion of his pelvis was removed surgically by Dr. Van Gundy, the surgeon at ACG. Polo is our first Pet of the Month to start with Parkway, go to Cardiology Northwest and then have surgery at Animal Care Surgical Specialists. Way to go Polo!

Update To Our COVID Protocols

We continue to monitor COVID-19 and the best way to keep everyone safe and healthy.  Due to the Omicron variant and increased number of cases our local community is experiencing, we will close our lobby and return to 100% curbside care effective immediately. Our industry is experiencing unprecedented staffing shortages and the need to preserve our staffing levels has influenced this decision. We will continue to monitor the progress of COVID and adjust our protocols accordingly. We are ready to care for your pet and ensure extra snuggles and TLC during their visit.

Please text us when you arrive for your appointment – the number is on our building and signs.
