Internal Medicine

The Internal Medicine service is concerned with diagnosing complex medical diseases of the internal body systems, such as those affecting the lungs, stomach, liver, kidneys, blood and hormones.

Our team specialise in the investigation of complex medical problems. The combination of an experienced and expert team, and sophisticated diagnostic equipment, places us in the best possible position to diagnose and treat a wide range of disorders in dogs and cats. We regularly investigate such conditions as: vomiting, diarrhoea, weight loss, hormonal problems such as diabetes, nasal discharge, bleeding disorders, lung disease, kidney disease and heritable disease.

As many of our patients have complicated problems that can be difficult to diagnose or treat, they often require a period of hospitalisation, including overnight stay, to allow a full investigation to be made. Please be aware that many major investigations take place the day following initial consultation. We understand that this can be a distressing time for owners and we try to reduce the stress as much as possible by communicating our findings and discussing progress on a daily basis. We are also very aware of the individual needs of cats and therefore we have invested extensively in feline-only facilities.

We aim to utilise non-invasive techniques whenever possible and we have experience in the use of interventional radiology when required. This method allows us to treat many conditions non-surgically, thus reducing tissue trauma, risk of infection and improving recovery time. We are extremely experienced in the removal of foreign bodies endoscopically (using a camera) from both the gastrointestinal and respiratory tract which reduces the need for often challenging and invasive surgical removal.

Our Internal Medicine team work with Specialists from other disciplines to ensure the highest possible level of care.

Internal Medicine Remote Consultations

If your pet has been referred to our Internal Medicine team for a chronic condition and you do not want  to make the journey initially to us, then a telephone consultation may be possible as the first stage to diagnosing and treating your pet's condition.

Please discuss with your local vet to see if this is advisable and/or appropriate.

Phone consultations do have some limitations in that the clinician will not be able to perform a physical examination of your pet.

This remote consultation costs £251

Please note there will be another fee if your pet is admitted into the hospital.
