The internal medicine department focuses on the diagnosis and (nonsurgical) treatment of diseases of the internal organs. You are often referred to an internal medicine specialist (internist) when the cause of your pet’s illness is not known. A board certified internist is a skilled diagnostician and can provide expert guidance to determine the cause of your pet’s illness.
Since an internist is a specialist of diseases of the kidneys, liver, gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system (hormones), bone marrow, blood, respiratory system, nose or immune system, you may be referred if your pet has a disease of one of these systems. With the internist, you can learn about additional diagnostic and treatment options and your pet can receive treatment for their illness.
