Our Careteam

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 had a great experience with Dr. Shaw. He was gentle with our sweet Judy, and took time to answer all of our questions. She seemed to be comfortable there and wasn't terrified! We are so happy with our vet choice!

      I can't say enough about Dr. shaw and the Westside Pet Hospital. The staff is so lovely. They obviously care about what they do. Dr. Shaw is just awesome. He spends an incredible amount of time with you and your pet, is thorough and gives you a lot of information. I love the fact that he uses standard veterinary care as well as being trained in accupuncture and alternative medicine. The practice is also spotless! Our Bernese Mountain dog and our 2 cats are patients and they are quite pleased to see Dr. Shaw. I highly recommend Westside Pet Hospital!

      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!
