Same-Day Animal Urgent Care

We are open late! If your dog or cat is in stable condition but needs medical attention, please make an appointment or walk in. We are open 7 days per week. We encourage you to make an appointment for your convenience and to reduce your pet’s stress. Walk-ins are welcome and will be seen in our first available time slot. We are a few doors down from Ross in the El Camino North Shopping Center in Oceanside, CA.

About Us

The Veterinary Urgent Care clinic in Oceanside has point-of-care ultrasound, an in-house lab, and digital radiography (x-rays). Our medical team is available to treat pet dogs and cats suffering from a variety of non-life threatening conditions such as ear issues, limping, scooting, hot spots, tooth, and nail-related injuries, coughing and sneezing, allergic reactions, minor injuries, and injuries in need of stitches, vomiting, diarrhea and not eating.

If your pet is suffering from any of these other conditions, we encourage you to seek medical care as soon as possible. If you cannot make an appointment at our clinic in Oceanside, we urge you to seek medical care elsewhere; alternative options include your family veterinarian or a nearby 24-hour emergency hospital.

Ethos Veterinary Health Urgent Care Hospitals

Please note: Veterinary Urgent Care does not provide 24-hour emergency care, and we are not equipped to accept patients in life-threatening conditions. If your pet is suffering from difficulty breathing or a major trauma, if he or she has eaten something toxic, is having seizures, or is unable to urinate, please go directly to a 24-hour emergency veterinary hospital.

The closest 24-hour emergency hospitals in the Ethos network are VSH – North County and VSH – Sorrento Valley.
