Contact Bixby Animal Clinic
Bixby Animal Clinic first opened in October of 2005. From the beginning, Bixby Animal Clinic has helped its clients celebrate and enjoy the special bond that is shared with their pets by providing attentive, innovative, and professional veterinary care in an atmosphere that is honest, compassionate, competent, and friendly.
Each day we can feel confident knowing that we helped people and pets in a meaningful way. Sometimes we help people while sharing in their joyous exhilaration. Other times we help people while sharing in their heartrending sorrow. Yet, at all times, we will help people while treating them as our friends, and help their pets while treating them as our very own.
Bixby Animal Clinic is fully equipped to provide a variety of diagnostic, medical, dental and surgical services for dogs and cats. Our clinic also provides behavioral or nutritional counseling and alternative vaccination protocols.
Updates Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We just wanted to let you know that we’re open and accepting all appointments. We recently announced extended hours on the weekdays, but out of an abundance of caution we’ll temporarily return to our previous hours of 8am – 7pm weekdays, 8am – 4pm on the weekends.
Your pet’s health remains our top priority, and we, along with the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), consider veterinary services to be an essential business. The AVMA has published a number of helpful guidelines regarding healthful practices for you and your pet, including the following:
· Infectious disease experts and multiple international and domestic human and animal health organizations agree there is no evidence at this point to indicate that pets become ill with COVID-19 or that they spread it to other animals, including people.
· If you are not ill with COVID-19, you can interact with your pet as you normally would, including walking, feeding, and playing. You should continue to practice good hygiene during those interactions (e.g., wash hands before and after interacting with your pet; ensure your pet is kept well-groomed; regularly clean your pet’s food and water bowls, bedding material, and toys).
· Out of an abundance of caution, it is recommended that those ill with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. Have another member of your household take care of walking, feeding, and playing with your pet. If you have a service animal or you must care for your pet, then wear a facemask; don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with them.
· As always, careful handwashing and other infection control practices can greatly reduce the chance of spreading any disease.
