Internal Medicine

When your pet is ill, you want to make sure he or she has access to advanced diagnostic and therapeutic treatment. These services are available at Oceanside Animal Clinic. Some of these services include Ultrasonography. Our ultrasound machine is operated by a skilled veterinarian who uses the equipment to aid in the diagnosis of medical conditions affecting your pet’s internal organs. Radiology is also used in diagnosing problems with internal organs, as well as in revealing fractures, arthritic conditions and problems with your pet’s spine. Our on-site, X-ray equipment provides high-quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. Oceanside Animal Clinic provides Electrocardiography (ECG) services on site, along with consultations with cardiology specialists. We also perform Endoscopy services for cases that require visual inspection and biopsy of the esophagus, stomach, nasal passages, trachea, colon, and other organs.

To help ensure the best possible care and the benefit of second opinions, Oceanside Animal Clinic offer Telemedicine referrals to an internal medicine specialist who helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases.
