What is internal medicine for pets?
Internal veterinary medicine involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of animals' internal systems, such as the kidneys, liver, gastrointestinal tract, and lung/airway.
Our vets are experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of challenging cases, and they have a variety of diagnostic tools and treatment methods at their disposal.
They can manage patients that have multiple disorders or diseases, and those that do not respond well to standard protocols.
