The Internal Medicine and Cardiology Service

The Internal Medicine and Cardiology Service’s objective is to diagnose and treat animals affected by a wide variety of disorders involving the digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, hematopoietic and endocrine systems. Our team aspires to improve and maintain your companion’s quality of life and therefore we use minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and offer precise medical therapy.

The internal medicine specialist is the designed person to treat diabetes, kidney disease, cardiomyopathies, liver disease, anemias, intestinal tract disease and much more in your dog or cat.

The internal medicine service including cardiology and the interventional procedures team offer specialized consultations for a vast range of complex medical problems and work closely with the many other services in the hospital.
