Internal Medicine

Our team of skilled internists collect and use many different pieces of information to create a complete picture of your pets condition. By coupling the use of state-of-the-art techniques and equipment with information compiled from the patient’s history, clinical signs, lab results, imaging studies and special procedures/testing, our internists are able to excel in diagnosing and treating complicated medical conditions. Through their partnership with your family veterinarian, the doctors and staff within our Internal Medicine department are able to provide exceptional expertise and care for your canine and feline family members.

The cause of non-specific symptoms such as fever, poor appetite, weight loss, labored breathing, vomiting/diarrhea, anemia, abdominal distension or discomfort, and urinary abnormalities can be identified and managed by our team of highly trained and experienced board-certified Small Animal Internal Medicine doctors. With over 40 years of combined experience, our internists constantly seek out and utilize more effective and less invasive procedures to diagnose and treat the disease(s) that affect your pet. Commonly used diagnostic aids include:

  • 24 Hour Monitoring
  • Endoscopy
  • Laparoscopy
  • Non-invasive biopsy and aspiration
  • Specialized sample collections
  • Thoracoscopy
  • Ultrasound
  • Urethral Pressure Testing
