What to Expect from an Internal Medicine Exam
Our doctors and staff are skilled in diagnosing and treating all manner of internal medicine cases. If your pet ever becomes ill, we will need to see them for a thorough examination, which includes checking these key areas:
- Ear canals
- Gastrointestinal tract
- Respiratory tract
Once we have made a diagnosis, we’ll discuss all possible treatment options for your pet and help you determine which course of action is best. We have significant experience treating a multitude of animal diseases, such as Cushing’s disease, Addison’s disease, and diabetes.
Signs Your Pet Might have an Illness
Dogs and cats are known for their ability to downplay pain and illness. Therefore, it can be easy to miss the warning signs. Try to be on the lookout for these characteristics and behaviors:
- Acting unlike their usual self (lethargic instead of upbeat, less sociable)
- Eating less
- Drinking more/less
- Urinating more frequently
- Sleeping more often
- Becoming hyperactive
- Sudden weight loss or gain
If your companion is showing any of these signs, contact us as soon as possible so we can answer your questions and help you schedule an appointment.
