Internal medicine encompasses a wide range of disorders, including hormonal diseases, immune disorders, infectious diseases as well as intestinal, pancreatic, liver, urinary and respiratory disorders. Internal Medicine specialists are also experienced in a variety of endoscopic procedures involving the intestinal tract, respiratory tract, urogenital tract, and nasal passages for biopsy or retrieval of foreign objects. The Internal Medicine specialists also work closely with our Radiology Service to facilitate various imaging studies including ultrasound, ultrasound guided aspirates and biopsies, fluoroscopy, and CT scans. The Internal Medicine service works closely with the Emergency, Oncology, and Surgery services for consultations on difficult cases or transfers for ongoing care, and is devoted to giving each patient individualized care and compassion.
Simple or complex, common or rare, we treat a variety of illnesses and diseases affecting dogs and cats’ internal organs and bodily systems. If ascertaining a diagnosis is proving elusive or treatment is not bringing about the desired results, your veterinarian may refer you to a veterinary internist.
