Internal Medicine Specialist Services
Your pet should see an internal medicine specialist if his or her disease is uncommon or rare, a neutral second opinion is sought, or to obtain assistance in making or confirming a diagnosis in conjunction with your regular veterinarian. Pets with multiple or complicated disease processes, and/or those who require 24-hour hospital care may also benefit from assessment by internal medicine. In addition, an internist can often offer more advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options for complicated conditions.
Common conditions evaluated by an internist include gastrointestinal disease, kidney disease, urinary issues, respiratory disease, endocrine disease, immune disease, disorders of the blood or bone marrow, medical neurologic disease and some types of cancer.
Some of the procedures that are offered include endoscopy, colonoscopy, cystoscopy, rhinoscopy, bronchoscopy, bone marrow sampling, spinal fluid taps, joint fluid sampling and chemotherapy.
