At Bixby Animal Clinic, serving Long Beach, CA, and the surrounding region, a veterinarian on our team offers our area access to an array of services for pets. As an animal hospital, we can provide urgent care and even perform several types of pet surgery. Our services also include routine animal care, such as pet dental and wellness care.
Wellness Exams/Preventative Care
For many of our pet patients, we may recommend their owners bring them to us once per year for a wellness exam.
During this time, we'll ask about any issues your pet is having. A veterinarian on our team will visually screen your pet and may request blood work to get a comprehensive understanding of your pet's overall health.
At wellness exams at our animal hospital, we provide a range of preventative care. For instance, if your pet is overweight, we may give advice to help you better manage his or her weight to reduce the prevalence of health problems in the future. We can supply routine vaccines to help your pet ward off potentially dangerous infections.
These routine visits are also a good time for us to monitor any of your pet's chronic conditions and adjust your pet's medication or offer our expertise to assist you with changing your pet's lifestyle to better manage his or her condition.
When your pet is feeling under the weather, we might request a thorough medical history report and ask you any questions about your pet's current condition. Then, we may need to perform certain testing to accurately diagnose your pet.
After we determine the problem, a veterinarian on our team may recommend a treatment to help your pet, if there's one available.
If your dog or cat sustains an injury, a vet on our team can help. We may need to perform imaging to figure out the root of the problem. Then, a veterinarian on our team can recommend the appropriate treatment, such as a broken bone might need a pet surgery to apply a plate or pins or will need a cast. Broken bones do heal on their own, but that doesn't mean they'll heal properly. That's why a vet on our team may want to provide treatment to ensure your pet recovers.
At our clinic, we provide pet dental care. While we can help prevent cavities in pets, cavities are rare. A main focus of pet dental is to ward off gum disease.
We provide spays, neuters, surgeries, and microchipping, among other services.
