Non-invasive Diagnostics and Treatments
If your pet isn’t feeling well, is showing signs of pain, or suddenly gains or loses weight, Animal Medical Care is here to get to the root of the problem and recommend the best treatment possible for your pet. Internal medicine involves non-invasive diagnostics and treatments to control and treat a variety of problems in your pet.
Diabetes is not uncommon in pets and can be treated with a little extra time and attention. If your pet experiences sudden weight gain or loss; is excessively drinking or urinating; or shows signs of lethargy, Animal Medical Care can determine whether diabetes might be the problem through a simple physical exam and in-house lab work.
Should your pet have diabetes, Animal Medical Care will discuss the best course of action for you and your pet, which may include dietary changes, insulin injections, or periodic blood tests. Together, we can minimize the potential hazards associated with diabetes so that your pet can live a happy, healthy life.
Both dogs and cats are susceptible to thyroid conditions, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and thyroid cancer. Thyroid problems may be indicated by sudden weight gain or loss; lethargy; increased appetite, thirst, or urination; and changes in heart rate.
Many thyroid conditions can be treated with medication, but sometimes surgery is required. If you suspect that your pet may have a thyroid problem, Animal Medical Care is here to get to the bottom of it.
Kidney, Liver, Urinary & Pancreas Problems
Dogs and cats may experience problems with many internal organs that can either be treated or managed to reduce any discomfort. If you notice that your pet is not acting like himself or herself, has a decrease in appetite, or is suddenly less active, Animal Medical Care has the tools necessary to diagnose your pet and develop a plan of treatment.
Heart conditions may be slow to develop in pets, but critical symptoms may suddenly appear. Animal Medical Care will thoroughly check your pet’s heart during your annual visit to try to catch any problems before any symptoms appear. However, if you notice that your pet is short of breath, weak, or has a bloated stomach, please contact us immediately.
Many heart conditions can be managed or treated through diet, medication, and/or supplements. Animal Medical Care will help you find the best course of action for your pet to keep his or her heart healthy.
While your pet may have occasional diarrhea or constipation that resolves itself in a couple of days, if it persists or occurs frequently—or if you see blood in your pet’s stool—it is important to contact Animal Medical Care so that we can determine the source of your pet’s problem. Conditions that are common include irritable bowel syndrome and blocked intestinal tracks.
Because many medical conditions aren’t immediately apparent, Animal Medical Care has taken great care to invest in the most up-to-date equipment and techniques to get to the bottom of your pet’s medical needs.
Some of these services include:
An ultrasound is a procedure performed in our office that is non-invasive and will allow us to assess the condition of your pet’s organs. This can be especially helpful when one of our veterinarians suspects your pet may have an abdominal, respiratory, or cardiac concern.
