Internal medicine patients are often seriously ill and require complex investigations. Disease can affect any organ within the body and our vets work hard to pin point the problem to allow the correct treatment. Here within the hospital we can split internal medicine into the following sections:
Gastroenterology Gastroenterology involves all your pets gastrointestinal (GI) tract (from mouth to anus) and your pets liver. Common interventions include; endoscopy and GI and/or hepatic biopsy to help diagnose and manage; GI bleeding, anaemia, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), jaundice and liver disease.
Respiratory disease Respiratory disease covers a wide range of disorders which can be congenital or inherited. Here at Buckley House we regularly diagnose and manage; inflammatory lung disease, infective lung disease (pneumonia), neoplasia and air way disease.
Cardiac disease Cardiac disease involves your pets heart, one of the most important organs within the body. Here at Buckley House we routinely scan hearts via ultrasound, conduct ECG traces to assess the hearts electrical conduction and manage dogs in heart failure.
Kidney and urinary tract disease The kidneys are a vital organ within your pet, allowing waste and toxins to be excreted from the body via urine. If the kidneys are not functioning correctly, these toxins build up within the blood stream making your pet very poorly. We use blood testing, urinalysis and ultrasonography in diagnosis.
