Our Veterinary Internal Medicine Services
A veterinary internal medicine specialist is skilled in the safe and compassionate diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the immune, cardiovascular, pulmonary, urinary, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems.
If your pet exhibits symptoms or has an illness that is difficult to diagnose or treat, an internal medicine specialist has the capabilities to diagnose and treat your pet as they offer more advanced care.
We emphasize a comprehensive, team approach to our cases at Pacific & Santa Cruz Veterinary Specialists and collaborate not only with your veterinarian but also with other specialists to ensure that your pet receives the best care possible.
