Dr. Scott D. Shaw
Owner, Chief Veterinarian
Dr. Scott Shaw cared for horses, chickens, a goat, and a cow at a young age, and always admired the local veterinarian who helped with the family’s animals. When the time came to apply for college, Dr. Shaw thought about what he really enjoyed. He liked animals, he was interested in science and puzzle-solving, and he wanted the ability to live wherever he desired. When Dr. Shaw added it all up, one choice was perfectly clear: veterinary medicine was the path for him!

Dr. Shaw is originally from San Jose, California and opened the doors of Westside Pet Hospital for business in the summer of 2012. He’s been caring for the area’s pets and animal parents here ever since. Dr. Shaw has a particular affinity for integrating Western medicine and alternative therapies to find the best solution for a pet’s ailment—he loves to put the pieces of the puzzle together to form a clear picture. Most of all, Dr. Shaw enjoys speaking directly with the area’s pet owners and being a firsthand witness to the incredible bonds that the area’s pet parents share with their four-legged companions.

Along with his wife of 25 years, Kristin, Dr. Shaw shares his home with his two sons, Doug and Nathan. Away from work, he loves to bicycle and has been riding on- and off-road for decades, and he’s also fond of skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing in the winter months.

      We have been very pleased with Westside Pet Hospital since we've been taking our precious little Maltese Willow there for annual check up, vaccinations, and teeth cleaning since 2015 (new to Bend). Dr. Shaw is great with Willow and is very knowledgeable about pet health issues. We love that he runs a teeth cleaning special every year during the month of February (National Pet Dental Health month). During her teeth cleaning appointment, Willow had her teeth cleaned, her nails clipped, her ears cleaned, blood work, and she came home with a baggy of dental treats. They took very good care of her while she was there for 7 hours. We got a call from Kiley the next day to check on Willow to see how she was doing. Everyone at Westside Pet Hospital is great and cares very much about animals, especially their patients! We highly recommend Westside Pet Hospital.

      Dr. Shaw helped ease pain and increase appetite in our old dog Spy with acupuncture. We were very grateful to have that option with our senior pet!

      I think when I moved to Bend 2 1/2 years ago I was more worried about my fur-babies having a good doctor then I was about my own doctor!! Dr. Shaw is the best and they have always been super helpful. I am never worried when I have leave them for the day with the staff and Dr. Shaw. Thank you so much for loving my babies as much as I do!
