I'm an animal lover. We've been going to Blue Cross since we moved to Long Beach over 9 years ago. They've helped us with our two VERY senior dogs (age 16 and 17), and when we had to put them down the hospital staff wrote a card and made a donation in our pets' names for research. They've helped us when we rescued multiple litters of kittens (worms, skin rashes, diarrhea -- you name it!). They helped when a rescue puppy swallowed a bone by taking X-rays every day until we saw that the bone was getting dissolved by stomach acid (thank goodness!). I've loved every vet we've seen, and cried on their shoulders more than a few times. They have a spot in the back with a sun roof, fountain and fake grass and they feed your dog a last meal and let you cry while your pet enjoys a moment with you in the sunshine before putting them down. They offer a service to cremate your pet and take cast impressions of the animal's paw as a keepsake. I have 3 very beautiful wooden boxes with my various pet's pawprints, tags, and ashes inside. I read the review that said the vet tried to "upsell" them on the cost of things. I haven't found that to be true. I can easily understand a staff member telling a potential client over the phone the cost of a vaccine, without realizing the client didn't know the vaccination should not be given without a full exam. Some vaccines should not be taken if an animal is sick! I wouldn't give my son the flu vaccine if he had a cold, same goes for animals. Let's face it, going to a doctor is expensive. Going to a vet is going to cost money, too. I'd rather go to a vet I trust than try to find somewhere cheaper to go with my beloved friends. After all, my animals are part of my family.

This was my first time at Blue Cross Veterinary Hospital. Everyone at Blue Cross Veterinary Hospital were very nice and friendly. The doctor spent as much time as needed to answer all my questions and make sure I understood everything she was telling me. I am very pleased with the service I received and will definitely bring my cat back there whenever he needs assistance. Thank you for the great service!

The first time I took my kittens there, everyone was friendly and very knowledgeable. They were noticeably friendly and caring to all the animals that came in while we were there. I could tell that Doctor Guenther really loves animals - she was great with the kittens. Her demeanor was very down to earth, and we felt very comfortable with her. I would recommend Blue Cross to other people.

This is a WONDERFUL clinic. The doctors obviously love animals and treat all their patients with exceptional care and concern for their best health and interest. They spend time with the pet owners to give recommendations and advice for better pet care. I recommend this clinic to anyone looking for the best for their pets; after all our pets are family and we all want what is best for our families.

I've gone to Blue Cross with my two dogs and cat for about 5 years. Four years ago, I brought my previously healthy dauschund in with what appeared to be severe dehydration. Within 30 minutes, Dr. Sellman had diagnosed her with a critical blood abnormality and developed an initial treatment plan. She ended up being admitted to a critical care hospital for five days and needing almost 6 months of regular medications and follow-up care. Throughout her illness, Dr. Sellman was thorough, thoughtful and compassionate. I credit him with saving her life. Most visits to the vet a pretty standard fare (check-ups, shots, etc.), but it is nice to know that when the need arises, the caring vets at Blue Cross are "on top of their game" and ready to provide excellent veterinary medical care.

I have found the entire staff, and all the Dr's to be very friendly, helpful and completely honest. They explain everything, never try to talk me into anything, nor try to talk me into extra procedures that are not necessary. Everyone there truly love animals, and are very supportive of the pet's Mommy's and Daddy's too. I would highly recommend them to anyone, with no hesitation!!!

My dog and I moved here 5 years ago, and Blue Cross Vet Clinic took excellent care of my dog. When he was 12 (his last year) he was treated for pancreatitis and then arthritis, both of which were cured and controlled. when he developed kidney failure while I was out of town, I was called twice a day with a report, and when ultimately, I had to put him to sleep, I have never been treated so warmly, humanely, sympathetically - and so was my dog to the end. The front desk is so wonderful - and all the vets who work there -and their techs - are so knowledgeable and compassionate. If I get another animal companion, I will certainly have him/her cared for at Blue Cross Vets.

I love all the doctors and staff at BCVH and have taken all my animals there for as long as I've lived in Long Beach. My pets have always received the best of care, no matter which tech handles them or which doctor I see. Everyone is kind and compassionate, treats you with a smile, and always remembers you and your pet's names. They help you through the difficult times as well as the good, and receiving a personally signed card from everyone when I lose one of my pets reassures me of how much they care about me and my pets. I wholeheartedly recommend them, without hesitation, for all your pet care needs.
