Avian and Exotics
Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic offers a wide selection of services to meet your pets’ medical needs.*
Pismo Beach Veterinary Hospital is equipped with the latest technology and pharmaceuticals to help ensure a safe and un-eventful anesthesia for your pet. Prior to any anesthetic event, we perform thorough physical examinations and recommend bloodwork as a pre-anesthetic health screen. Anesthetic monitoring is achieved via indirect blood pressure oscilometry, pulse oximetry, ECG, temperature, esophageal stethoscope, and respiratory monitors. Additional patient support is provided through heated surgical pads, intravenous catheterization and fluids, as well as constant supervision by a doctor and veterinary technician.
At Pismo Beach Veterinary Hospital, we take your pets’ health very seriously. Though anesthesia is always a risk, we strive to mitigate and reduce complications through methodical and vigilant patient care.
In addition to dogs and cats, Pismo Beach Veterinary Hospital provides comprehensive medical care for most pet exotics, including small mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Our doctors and staff have received training in the care of pet exotics and we are equipped to provide clinical diagnostics, radiology, surgery, husbandry counseling, and other medical needs.
Since 2012 , Pismo Beach Vet has been offering Care Credit to our clients. We know that times are tough for a lot of folks but that doesn’t mean your pet’s health needs to suffer.
Care Credit is a credit card specifically for health needs. It can be used for Lasik, Cosmetic, Dental, Veterinary, and other Medical Specialties for both you and your pets!
The great thing about Care Credit is that during the promotional period of 6, 12, or 18 months it is 100% interest free! That means that as long as you make regular payments within the promotional period, there are no charges whatsoever to the card holder.*
It is extremely easy to apply (takes only a few minutes), and in general it is easier to qualify than a normal credit card. If your credit is not great, you can even use a co-signer to improve your chance of success.
Like most small businesses, we are unfortunately unable to personally extend credit. That’s why we are excited to offer this great new service and hope that it will be of great benefit to our clients. Please let us know if you have any questions.

The HELP Fund was founded by Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic to assist people in limited income situations with the care of their animal family members. Services might include anything from physical examination to surgical procedures. The fund is designed for young, otherwise healthy animals that have had a sudden catastrophic illness or injury but that would have a good prognosis with appropriate medical or surgical care.
HELP is funded entirely by the donations of clients and friends of Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinc. HELP will match owner’s funding for their pet’s health care up to $500 on a case by case basis at veterinarian discretion and as funds allow.
Donations can be made in person or by check written out to Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic and mailed to 990 Price Street, Pismo Beach, CA 93449.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity – every little bit HELPs.
