Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Thank you for selecting our VCA Animal Hospital for your pet's health care needs. We look forward to providing you---and your pet---with the highest quality of care and attention. Our entire staff will do all we can to help your pet enjoy a happy and healthy life.

Local Medical Issues

Concerns for your pets during the spring, summer, and winter months that exist in Big Bear are as follows:

Rattlesnake bites (recommend rattlesnake vaccine), tick infestation (recommend Lyme vaccine and tick control), hiking problems (injuries, dehydration and heat stroke), and winter weather complications (arthritis, ice lacerations, frostbite, and hypothermia).

We also provide after-hours emergency service, discount dental day, two half-price vaccine clinics, a pet store, and prescription foods. Walk-in appointments are always welcome.

The friendly, professional staff at VCA Lakeside Animal Hospital is made up of dedicated individuals who have made it their mission to help pets live long, healthy lives. To be true to this mission the hospital team relies on several individuals, where each team member is equally important in helping us deliver the best patient and client experience for both you and your pet.

And if things get very complicated, we are fortunate to have access to the nation's largest network of VCA veterinarians and board certified specialists. In a word: TEAMWORK!

Teamwork is a constant in our daily practice. From the very first person you speak to to the person who checks you and your pet out, our team of pet lovers works cohesively to create a warm and welcoming experience for both you and your pet.
