Internal Medicine

If your pet struggles with chronic, complicated, or complex diseases or conditions, internal medicine can help find answers and provide relief. We know it can feel frustrating and overwhelming to deal with an ongoing health problem in your pet, and we’re here to help! 

What is Internal Medicine? 

Internal medicine refers to diagnosing and treating issues involving your pet’s internal organs and organ systems. This approach aims to understand the complex interactions involved in these organ and bodily systems and then integrates this knowledge into how best to treat the condition at hand. 

Conditions that can be addressed with internal medicine include: 

  • Diabetes
  • Blood disorders
  • GI disorders
  • Diseases of the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder
  • Immune-mediated disorders
  • Hormonal/endocrine disorders
  • Diseases of the urinary or reproductive systems
  • Tumors and cancer
  • Dermatological disorders

On-Site Diagnostics Mean Fast Results

Because internal medicine deals with the intricate actions and interactions of organ systems (and because our pets can’t talk), quality diagnostics are a vital part of the process. Blood testing, urinalysis, fecal screens, radiology, and ultrasound are all essential tools in diagnosing internal medicine disorders. Lee Animal Hospital is proud to offer a wide variety of fast, high-quality diagnostic services on-site—meaning that in many cases, you’ll get test results within minutes or hours rather than days. Faster results mean we can reach a diagnosis quicker and get right to work on making your pet feel better again. We offer transparent pricing and provide estimates for all services so you’ll know what to expect, and together, we’ll make a plan to get your pet back on their paws!
