Internal Medicine

We’re here for when detective work is required to establish a diagnosis

If your pet is suffering from clinical problems that are not obviously surgical they may be treated by our Internal Medicine team. These conditions include vomiting, diarrhoea, excessive drinking, malaise, weight loss or gain, anaemia and fever.

The Internal Medicine team are the detectives who work to establish a diagnosis. Once we understand your pet’s illness we can then discuss options and tailor a treatment plan to your pet’s individual needs.

Typically, after an initial consultation, a patient will be admitted for further investigation such as blood tests, radiographs, ultrasound or endoscopy. After the tests, unless immediate additional treatment is needed, animals may go home to await results. Sometimes, if a patient is found to have a non-medical disease and, for example, needs surgery or cancer treatment, they may be transferred to another team within the hospital.

Our Internal Medicine team are happy to discuss cases over the telephone with veterinary colleagues, but are unable to discuss cases with owners prior to a formal consultation.
