Your Pet's Health is in Good Hands
At Blue Oaks Veterinary Clinic, your pet's health is our number one priority. We provide high quality veterinary care to small animals, exotics, and avian species in Roseville and the greater Sacramento area.
The Blue Oaks Veterinary Team is committed to keeping your pet healthy year-round, that's why we recommend biannual wellness exams.
Vaccinations are important to keep your pet healthy, as well as your human family. At Blue Oaks Veterinary Clinic we offer a variety of vaccines and vaccine schedules that will be individually tailored to your pet's needs and life style.
At Blue Oaks Veterinary Clinic, we are passionate about dental health and prevention of painful periodontal disease. We have invested in state-of-the-art dental equipment, including digital dental radiographs, to keep your pet's mouth healthy. While we can address and cure advanced dental disease and infections, our philosophy is to prevent these problems with routine anesthetic dental cleanings.
In addition to routine spaying and neutering, Blue Oaks Veterinary Clinic veterinarians perform a full range of routine and emergency surgeries on dog, cat, and exotic species. In the event that a board certified surgeon is needed, we have a partnership with a local surgeon who will come and perform specialty surgeries in our clinic so your pet stays under the care of it's primary care veterinarian in an environment they are comfortable in.
Blue Oaks Veterinary Clinic was founded by Dr. Omar Cabrera and Dr. Aileen Thompson in 2017. After working together at another local clinic for five years, Drs. Cabrera and Thompson merged their dreams of practice ownership to create Blue Oaks Veterinary Clinic. Our goal is to treat you and your animals as our family, and to provide high quality medical care with state-of-the-art equipment to small animals, exotics, and avian species in Roseville and the greater Sacramento area.
