Internal Medicine

Through state-of-the-art-equipment, we’ll perform advanced diagnostics such as ultrasound and endoscopy to find the cause of your pet’s sickness. Therefore, we can begin the appropriate treatment as soon as possible. A number of illnesses can fly below the radar and will require a more in-depth approach of internal medicine to diagnose.
 

Here is a list of conditions and illnesses an internist may diagnose and treat:

  • Blood abnormalities such as anemia, low platelets or changes in white blood cell counts

  • Cancers

  • Kidney failure and urinary tract problems

  • Diseases of the throat and nose

  • Breathing disorders including feline asthma and canine bronchitis

  • Gastrointestinal conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease

  • Diabetes, thyroid conditions, Cushing’s disease or other hormonal abnormalities

  • Immune system problems and infectious diseases

  • Internal organ dysfunctions

  • Unexplained fevers, weight loss, and toxicities

Risks of Untreated Dental Disease

Dental disease isn’t just about discomfort and “dog breath” — it can cause serious complications for your pet’s overall health. Pets can't tell us when they're uncomfortable, and all too often they hide their discomfort out of instinct. So, regular dental cleanings and oral exams can make a world of difference. If left untreated, dental disease can affect vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. Watch out for these telling signs of dental disease:
 

  • Bad breath

  • Discolored teeth

  • Swollen, red gums

  • Disinterest in chew toys

  • Noticeable pain when eating

Home Care Advice

Typically, most dogs and cats need dental cleanings every 1 to 2 years depending on the level of oral hygiene at home. To maximize your pet’s oral health and lessen their trips to the clinic, be thorough with your at-home care.

  • Brush your pet’s teeth as regularly as you can. While every day is ideal, it might be troublesome or impossible. For difficult pets, we can discuss other options such as water additives or plaque-fighting chews.

  • Use only pet toothpaste and brushes for your pet’s teeth. Human toothpaste is not recommended. We offer pet toothpaste, gel, and toothbrushes in the house.
