Put simply, veterinary internal medicine is about taking care of the inside of your pet. This discipline involves investigating, treating and preventing disease, and we use both medical and surgical treatments to help pets suffering from internal diseases.
Here at Paragon Veterinary Referrals, we are proud of our purpose-built facility, fitted with the latest technologies and equipment to provide the highest level of care for our patients. Whether your pet is suffering from an on-going condition like diabetes or a short-term ailment like acute diarrhoea, we can help.
The internal medicine team work closely with the soft tissue surgeons to provide a holistic service for your pet. Some common conditions referred to our internal medicine department include:
- Diabetic patients
- Nasal conditions
- Chronic diarrhoea
- Weight loss
- Blood problems
Pets with an internal condition can expect to have a 20 – 60 minute consultation with our veterinary internal medicine practitioners.
We will take a thorough history from you and examine your pet carefully, trying to answer any questions you may have and suggest ways to investigate and treat your pet’s problem. We will always discuss potential costs, outcomes and risks, including complications.
Assuming you have agreed to treatment, your pet may need to be left with us for immediate investigation and treatment. We aim to send most internal medicine cases home on the same day. If this is not appropriate, we have extensive hospitalisation facilities to care for your pet during his or her stay.
