"Absolutely amazing service! Dr. Johnson takes the time to really listen to you and your concerns. I've been taking my cat here for about 2 years and every time it has been a great experience."

Dr. Debra Johnson

Dr. Johnson received her undergraduate degree from OSU and her DVM from Ross University. After practicing in Salem and at an urgent care facility in Tualatin for several years, she knew she wanted to start her own practice.

She opened Paws Animal Hospital in 2013.
