Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

Public Health Local Veterinarians

Veterinarians diagnose and treat sick or injured animals by providing medical care that includes performing surgery, prescribing medication, dressing wounds, and setting bones. There are many different types of veterinarians, each with their own areas of expertise.

Types of Veterinarians:

  • Companion animal veterinarians treat pets. These vets typically work in private clinics, and commonly treat household pets like cats and dogs. Some also treat more uncommon types of pets like rabbits, reptiles, and birds.
  • Equine veterinarians treat horses. They are sometimes employed directly by a stable or racetrack, but may also run their own office and travel to provide treatment.
  • Livestock veterinarians treat farm animals like cows, pigs, and sheep. They help to vaccinate the animals against diseases, and recommend ways that the owners can improve the overall health and well-being of their animals.
