Our veterinary internal medicine specialists have experience with treating a host of different problems, including urogenital, immunologic, neurologic, endocrine, gastrointestinal, respiratory, infectious diseases, hematologic systems and cancer care.

Treatment for Diabetes, Hyperthyroidism, Anemia & More
While there are many pet-affecting diseases, there are some that are far more prevalent than others. Typical endocrine issues include diabetes insipidus and mellitus, Cushing’s disease, hypo- and hyperthyroidism and Addison’s disease. Common hematological ailments are anemia, inhibited red blood cell production and clotting mechanisms. Some gastroenterological problems are food allergies, cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and gastrointestinal ulcers. While you tend to hear more about respiratory issues related to humans, pets are sometimes subjected to them as well, including laryngeal paralysis, feline asthma, a collapsing trachea, pneumonia and canine chronic bronchitis.
