Internal medicine may be a familiar term, but what does it mean for pets? When a health condition is complex or unclear, and involves the organs or systems of the body, this is where internal medicine comes in.
All of our staff veterinarians are trained and experienced in assessing your pet for problems including:
- Urinary tract disorders
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Endocrine disorders
- Immune system deficiencies
- Heart and lung diseases
- Infectious illnesses
Why Does My Pet Need a Specialist?
Just as your physician might refer you to a specialist, our team works with a board-certified internist to address more complicated health problems. As pets live longer lives, they are subject to increased risk of diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, and cancer.
To give your pet a better prognosis and quality of life, specialized care, possible cure, and advanced treatment options are integral. Internal medicine is one of the best ways we can help to enhance health and encourage longevity.
