Veterinary Internal Medicine: Monitoring Your Pet’s Internal Organs
Your pet’s health includes having healthy functioning internal organs. These organs can become diseased or damaged due to injury or hereditary factors. Veterinary internal medicine is involved with the diagnosis and treatment of your pet’s internal organs.
Being inside the animal’s body, damage and other symptoms of diseased or injured internal organs are often not visible. Plus, our pets are unable to alert us when they are suffering pain or other symptoms of internal organ problems. This is why periodic head to tail preventive care exam and good nutrition, especially in the case of older pets, are an important part of ensuring a long and healthy life for your pet.
Thanks to advances in modern veterinary medicine, we have numerous ways to diagnose and treat internal organ problems in pets. We also have equipment like the endoscope that enables us to examine and view an animal’s internal organs in a non-invasive way. Our diagnostic tools and procedures, along with state-of-the-art laboratory techniques, make it possible to monitor and diagnose what is happening medically inside your pet without having to resort to exploratory surgery.
Endocrinology is an important aspect of internal medicine for pets with diabetes and endocrine issues. Modern veterinary medicine now has the tools to not only detect diabetes in dogs and cats early, but to help manage it.
Being a full-service veterinary medical facility, we are proud to offer a complete range of veterinary care for your pet while treating each owner like family and every pet as if he or she were our own.
