Our internal medicine department excels in diagnosing and treating complex medical problems that involve multiple body systems. Through our advanced service and diagnostic resources, we can build on the care that your family veterinarian began. Our board-certified internal medicine specialists are highly trained in endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, immunology, infectious diseases, nephrology/urology, and respiratory disease.

In addition to our training and technology, one of our greatest medical tools is communication—we believe in collaborating with your primary veterinarian every step of the way. We’ll work together to seek a diagnosis, second opinion, and/or management of acute and chronic diseases. Our internists also consult with other specialists at our hospital, including surgeons, oncologists, and emergency care veterinarians. We’ll do everything possible for your pet’s health and for your peace of mind.
