Canine Internal Medicine

Canine Internal Medicine Service

The Canine Internal Medicine service specialises in the investigation and treatment of complex medical cases involving disorders of the internal body organs of dogs, such as those affecting the intestines, kidneys, liver, pancreas, blood and hormone systems. Using a combination of specialist expertise and state-of-the-art equipment, coupled with compassion, we are able to provide the best possible care.

What We Offer

The Canine Internal Medicine Service sees dogs with a wide range of problems such as vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing, sneezing, weight loss, swelling of the abdomen and lethargy. Dogs are referred to us if they require either specialist knowledge or specialist equipment to help them. Our canine patients often require a range of diagnostic tests and treatments, and where possible we try to use a minimally invasive approach such as using interventional radiology. The Canine Medicine team collaborates with specialists in other disciplines as a team approach to ensure the best treatment for the dogs in our care. We work closely with our referring vets and owners to maximise the benefits for our canine patients and provide reassurance for their carers.

The conditions we investigate include:
  • Nasal disorders
  • Respiratory disease
  • Gastrointestinal disease
  • Liver and pancreatic disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Lower urinary tract disorders
  • Blood disorders
  • Hormonal diseases
  • Tumour diseases

We often need to hospitalise dogs for diagnostic tests and treatments, and we understand that can be hard for owners and their pets. We aim to ease these concerns by giving regular and comprehensive updates for owners and we work hard to put the dogs at ease and keep them happy as much as is possible.

If you are a referring veterinary surgeon and would like to discuss or refer a case, please contact our team. We will aim to reply as soon as possible.
