Charlotte Pets Stay Healthier With Veterinary Internal Medicine
Veterinary internal medicine helps to give us the answers to many pet health questions. This approach to veterinary medicine specializes in the nonsurgical treatment of diseases, where diagnosis and management are at the forefront. Some problems with your pet's health can be noted from birth, begin later in life, or may even be caused by a toxic substance in his or her environment. Internal medicine helps us to understand the cause and leads us to the most effective treatment.
Rea Road Animal Hospital has experienced veterinarians who will work hard to determine what your pet's illness is, the cause, and then will go on to design a plan to diagnose and treat your pet. Internal medicine for pets concentrates on diagnosing and treating disorders including:
- Heart disease
- Infectious diseases
- Liver disease
- Unexplained weight loss
- Chronic vomiting
- Chronic diarrhea
- Bleeding disorders or anemia
- Cancer or neoplasia
- Endocrine problems, such as diabetes , thyroid issues, Addison's disease, Cushing's syndrome, and kidney and bladder diseases
Once we have confirmed the cause of your pet's problem through tests and hands-on examinations, we will prescribe the right type and amount of medication for your precious pet.
