Our veterinary internal medicine practice involves the treatment of diseases and disorders affecting your pet's internal systems.
Our veterinarians bring extensive experience and knowledge to the table in the diagnosis and treatment of both common and challenging cases, from lung disease and nervous system disorders to tumors and endocrine system issues.
At White House Animal Hospital, we have a variety of diagnostic tools and treatment methods at our disposal.
We can manage patients with multiple diseases or disorders, and provide effective treatment alternatives for those who do not respond well to standard procedures.
If your pet is showing symptoms of an internal condition our vets will conduct a comprehensive physical examination of your companion in order to diagnose their issue and create a detailed treatment plan that is targeted to their needs.
Our veterinarians diagnose and treat ailments in the following areas:
Just like people, cats and dogs can suffer from heart diseases and disorders. With the technologies and tools that we have in our in-house vet lab, we can examine your pet for signs of heart conditions so that you have results quickly. Fast results mean starting treatment sooner.
If your vet is unable to diagnose or treat your dog or cat's heart condition as part of our internal medicine checks we will be sure to forward you to a Board Certified Internal Medicine Vet near White House, and work with your specialist to ensure that your pet receives the very best care.
Our veterinary team knows that properly breeding companion animals require a huge amount of time, energy and financial investment.
If your animal is experiencing reproductive difficulties, our vets will work to diagnose the issue and offer appropriate treatment options to help resolve the problem.
Your pet's immune system is what is responsible for detecting infection, foreign invaders and abnormal cells and starting defensive action in order to protect your pet's health. That being said, sometimes your pet's immune system won't work as it should. In cases like this, your companion will be diagnosed with an immune-mediated disorder.
Common immune-mediated disorders in dogs and cats include anemia, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, hypothyroidism, allergies, and skin diseases.
Your pet's respiratory system does the critical work of delivering oxygen to your pet's body and eliminating waste gases like carbon dioxide from their body. Because dogs and cats don't sweat the way people do, your pet's respiratory system also plays a key role in regulating body temperature.
There are a number of common pulmonary disorders seen in dogs, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), canine distemper virus, pneumonia, and lung tumors.
Common pulmonary disorders in cats include asthma, bronchitis, parasitic worms, bacterial infections, and viruses.
Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders are a common internal medicine issue seen by our White House veterinarians. GI conditions affect your pet's stomach and intestines, interfering with the animal's ability to digest food properly and absorb nutrients.
Pets that are suffering from gastrointestinal issues will often experience symptoms like blood in their stool, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal pain, loss of appetite and abnormal weight loss.
Cancer is a disease that can impact even the fittest humans and animals. When diagnosed in the earliest stages, in many cases cancers in dogs and cats can be treated with a combination of surgeries, therapies, and other methods.
Some of the most common cancers in dogs include mast cell tumors, melanoma, lymphoma, and bone cancer. In cats, some of the most common cancers include lymphoma, feline leukemia virus (FeLV), mammary cancer, and skin cancer.
If your pet requires diagnosis or cancer care beyond the scope of our skilled veterinarians, we will refer you to a veterinary oncology specialist near White House.
Veterinary internal medicine also covers urology conditions such as urinary tract infections in dogs and feline lower urinary tract disease in cats.
Your pet's urinary tract consists of their kidneys, the tubes that carry urine to the bladder, the bladder, and the urethra that conducts urine out of your animal's body. Urinary tract disorders can affect any part of this system.
Essential hormones are secreted into your pet's body thanks to the hard work of a number of glands. These glands and hormones are your pet's endocrine system. When your pet's endocrine system isn't working the way it should, symptoms can include skin problems and poor coat condition.
Neurology is a branch of veterinary internal medicine covering conditions of the brain and spinal cord as well as neuromuscular dysfunction. Some of the most common neurological disorders in dogs and cats include seizures, IVDD, and tumors.
If your animal requires diagnoses or care for neurologic conditions that are beyond the scope of our experienced veterinarians, we will be happy to refer you to an animal internal medicine specialist or veterinary neurologist near White House. Our vets will work closely with your specialist to ensure that your pet receives the best treatment possible.
Your pet's health is our highest priority.
If your pet needs a procedure or expertise that we do not offer, we will refer you to an experienced veterinary internal medicine specialist near White House.
We support our comprehensive approach to dog and cat internal medicine with advanced testing, imaging and other diagnostic procedures.
Our in-house veterinary lab is equipped with the technology we need to diagnose your pet's internal medicine condition quickly and accurately so that treatment can begin sooner.
