Internal Medicine is comprised of the following disciplines:
Hematology & Transfusion Medicine
Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system, consisting of the thyroid gland, the adrenal glands, the pancreas, and the hypothalamus and pituitary gland (hormone-secreting regions of the brain). Common endocrine diseases that are diagnosed and managed by our internists include diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, hyper and hypoparathyroidism, hyper and hypothyroidism, hyperadrenocorticism (Cushing’s disease), and hypoadrenocorticism (Addison’s disease).
Gastroenterology is the study of the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gall bladder and pancreas. Our doctors utilize esophagoscopy, gastroduodenoscopy, and colonoscopy as diagnostic. These procedures are a minimally invasive means to visualize the gastrointestinal tract and obtain biopsies. This can aid in the diagnosis of conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, food allergies, gastrointestinal ulcers, or cancer. Additionally, these scopes are occasionally used to retrieve foreign bodies in the esophagus or stomach.
Nephrology is the study of the kidneys. Our doctors specialize in the diagnosis and management of both acute and chronic kidney disease. Urology is the study of the lower urinary tract, which is comprised of the bladder and urethra. Ultrasound are commonly performed diagnostic tests utilized to diagnose common urologic disorders. Some typical disorders are bladder stones, feline lower urinary tract disease, polyps, tumors, or ectopic ureters.
Respiratory medicine is the study of the upper respiratory tract (including the nose, nasopharynx, larynx and trachea), and the lower respiratory tract (including the bronchi and lower airways). Our doctors often utilize radiographs and advanced imaging.
Hematology is the branch of internal medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of disease of the blood and blood forming elements. Blood is composed of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets (blood clotting cells) and the liquid (also called plasma) the cells are suspended in as they circulate around the body. Dogs and cats suffer from diseases of all blood cells and deficiencies of proteins contained in the plasma. These proteins are responsible for normal blood coagulation.
