Internal Medicine is the discipline within Medicine and Surgery that deals with all the non-surgical issues that a pet might have. Common ailments that fall under Internal Medicine would be Cardiology, Respiratory Disease, Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases, Gastroenterology, Liver and Kidney Issues, Endocrine (Glandular) Issues like Diabetes, Cushing’s Disease or Hyperadrenocorticism, Addison’s Disease or Hypoadrenocorticism, Hypo and Hyperthyroidism, etc. At Country Creek Animal Hospital, we are well equipped to diagnose, treat, manage, and prevent some of the common internal medicine issue that your pet may face or is challenged with.
In addition to in-house Diagnostic Imaging equipment and quick access to ultrasound services if needed, we also have a fully functioning in-house laboratory that can analyze blood, urine, and fecal samples for a timely and accurate diagnosis as well as appropriate treatment planning and patient monitoring. The tests that can be run in house include:
Other tools that are at our disposal for medical workups include:
Electrocardiograph (ECG or EKG) to measure and monitor heart waves for arrhythmias, heart block, assessment during CPR, etc
Blood Pressure monitoring equipment to accurately and easily measure blood pressure for the presence of hypo- or hypertension (Low and High Blood Pressure)
Pulse Oximetry to measure the oxygenation levels in the peripheral blood flow. This helps us assess respiratory function, oxygen carrying capacity of the red blood cells, and any interference with normal air exchange.
We also have your standard thermometers, ophthalmoscope (eye scope), otoscope (ear scope), a microscope to assess samples of blood, urine, and stool, cytology samples from aspirates of masses, limited microbiology lab for determining fungal and bacterial growths, etc.
