Internal Medicine

Our team of skilled internists collects and uses 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 nonspecific symptoms, such as lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea, poor appetite, weight loss, labored breathing, coughing, abnormal urination, or abdominal discomfort or distention, can be identified and managed by our team of highly trained and experienced board-certified Small Animal Internal Medicine doctors. With more than 60 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
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy
  • Non-invasive biopsy and aspiration
  • Bone marrow biopsy
  • Ultrasound
  • Urethral pressure testing
  • Specialized drug infusions
  • Lithotripsy
  • Laser ablative procedures
  • Hemodialysis

Our multi-disciplinary approach and close cooperation among our specialists allow us to offer the best care available to the patients entrusted to us.
