Your Tucson-Area Internal Medicine

The following are methods and tools we use to deliver excellent internal medicine services to your dog or cat.

Endoscopy

To look inside the GI tract, collect tissue and samples for biopsy and remove foreign objects.

Electrocardiography

An EKG is used to detect electrical and rhythm abnormalities in your pet.

Intestinal Parasites

Roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms, Coccidia, and Giardia are among the most common intestinal parasites. Some heartworm meds can prevent these other parasites. Fecal testing can diagnose the problem.

We recommend annual fecal testing for all dogs and cats, especially if your pet spends a lot of time at dog parks and doggy daycare facilities. Please bring a fresh stool sample to your appointment.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a tool that allows us to observe the physical form and size of your pet’s internal organs, allowing us to detect any abnormalities.

Radiology (X-ray)

X-rays allow us to see images of the internal organs and structures in your pet’s body without surgical intervention. We use digital radiology at Pima Pet Clinic to speed up the diagnostic process and more easily communicate with other doctors treating your pet.

Sometimes a patient’s medical issue requires additional expertise. Our medical team is relied on by many veterinarians around the area to offer second opinions, additional diagnostics, and special or emergency treatment.

What’s tricky about internal medicine is that when your pet experiences an internal medical issue, he or she might not show any symptoms. This is why regular pet care for all stages of your dog’s or cat’s life is important.
