Looking Deeper

Dogs and cats requiring internal medicine care often have illnesses that can be complex and require advanced diagnostics to determine the cause. Our internal medicine department strives to provide compassionate care for your pet during times of illness. As diplomats of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Drs. Totten and Wood have advanced training and experience to meet the challenging needs of pets with internal medicine problems. All ages of pets may require this type of care, with geriatric patients being the most common.

Common internal medicine cases include hematological problems, endocrine disorders, gastrointestinal illnesses, respiratory ailments, liver disease, and kidney/urinary problems. The internal medicine department works together with the surgical, cardiology, and emergency departments to address all of your pet’s needs.
