Our internal medicine department applies advanced diagnostic techniques and experience to optimise the care of patients with complex conditions.
When a pet is brought in to see our internal medicine team, the specialist will review all of their previous history and tests and perform a thorough clinical examination. When appropriate, they may discuss the use of advanced laboratory testing and/or diagnostic procedures such as ultrasonography, CT, MRI, endoscopy or surgery.
These more advanced tests allow us to develop a detailed picture of the health concerns of each patient, so we can tailor an effective management plan to help them and optimise their quality of life. We aim to work together with owners and their regular veterinarians to help manage their pet’s conditions with compassion.
