What is Veterinary Internal Medicine?

This branch of medicine is aimed specifically at diagnosing, treating and managing diseases or ailments that affect your pet’s organs or other internal structures. Simply put, this type of veterinary care addresses anything that happens inside your pet’s body, including but not limited to:

  • Infections
  • Tumors and cancer
  • Immune problems
  • Inflammation
  • Anemia
  • Degenerative diseases
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Kidney, pancreatic, bladder, liver or heart disease
  • Endocrine diseases, including diabetes and thyroid disorders
  • Internal trauma caused by an accident

Internal medicine uses non-invasive diagnostic techniques to discover what’s wrong, including ultrasounds, endoscopes, X-rays and biopsies. Depending on what Dr. Lucas finds, your pet may benefit from non-invasive treatments such as laser pain therapy or medications. Surgery, chemotherapy or other treatments may be required in more serious cases.

Most of the time, we can provide everything your pet needs right here in our Reisterstown vet clinic. However, in severe circumstances, Dr. Lucas may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in internal medicine to provide the care your pet requires.

When to See our Reisterstown Veterinarian

If you ever notice your pet acting uncharacteristically, it’s wise to make an immediate trip to our Reisterstown veterinarian's office. The condition could be minor, or the symptoms you notice could be a sign of something more serious. You won’t know until you have an official diagnosis from a veterinary internal medicine specialist.

Bring your dog or cat to TLC for Pets if you notice any of these signs of internal distress:

  • Repeat vomiting
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Coughing or breathing difficulties
  • Abnormal swelling
  • Difficulty eating or swallowing
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Chronic lethargy and weakness
