At Pacific Care Pet Emergency & Specialty, our internal medicine specialists care for patients with a variety of conditions affecting multiple parts of the body. By using advanced technology to gather data, studying clinical signs and lab results, and discussing symptoms with you and your veterinarian, our internal medicine service provides expert insight and treatment for your pet’s situation. A chronic or recurring illness or disease can be frustrating, difficult to stabilize or manage long-term, or even to definitively diagnose. That’s where we come in.
An internist can diagnose many types of infectious diseases and immune system disorders, treating complicated diseases that affect the gastrointestinal tract, urinary system, hormone systems, blood, lungs, liver and pancreas.
When you can tell something is wrong with your pet, but the underlying cause isn’t clear, your family veterinarian may refer you to one of our internists for further diagnostics. The internist will begin diagnosing and treating the patient, sharing test results and lab work with your primary veterinarian and any other required specialists to create an appropriate treatment plan for your pet. We’ll do everything possible for your pet’s health, and for your peace of mind.
