Your pet’s internal health affects every aspect of his or her overall health, behavior, mood, and quality of life. Bayside Animal Hospital is here to keep your pet healthy from the inside out.
Internal medicine focuses on the processes that keep the body alive and functioning properly. If something is off internally, it could impact your pet’s daily life. Internal medicine focuses on:
- The respiratory system
- The cardiovascular system
- The endocrine system
- The kidneys
- The gastrointestinal (GI) tract
Illnesses that might affect these internal systems include, but are not limited to:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Kidney failure
- Cushing’s disease
- Liver disease
- Gastrointestinal distress (vomiting, diarrhea)
- Breathing problems
- Heart failure
- Bladder issues
The board-certified internists we consult with always work to diagnose internal issues early so they can develop the best course of treatment to give your pet the most successful outcome. Using advanced diagnostics, they create a clear picture of the inner workings of an animal’s body to determine if anything is amiss and might be causing health issues for your pet.
The whole team at Bayside Animal Hospital believes that veterinary medicine should be a collaborative effort. No matter what our veterinarians find, we will talk to you about potential solutions and work together to find the optimal course of action for your pet and your family.
