Diagnosis & Treatment of Sick Pets

Internal medicine deals with the diagnosis and treatment of nonsurgical diseases in pets. Our team takes the time to make an accurate diagnosis by listening to your concerns, gathering pertinent information, and conducting a thorough physical exam.

Diagnostics may include laboratory testing, digital x-rays, and EKG, available on site for rapid results. For advanced diagnostics, including ultrasound and endoscopy, we refer to our affiliate, Lucerne Veterinary Hospital.
