Internal Medicine Conditions

If your pet exhibits symptoms of an internal condition, your veterinarian will conduct a thorough physical examination to diagnose the problem and develop a detailed treatment plan tailored to your pet's specific needs.

Our veterinarians diagnose and treat the following conditions:

  • Cardiology (heart-related disorders)

    Like people, dogs and cats can suffer from heart diseases and disorders. With the technology in our in-house vet lab, our vets can examine your pet for signs of heart conditions so that you have results quickly. Fast results mean starting treatment sooner. 

    Your pet's heart condition will be diagnosed and treated by a Board Certified Internal Medicine Vet near Rochester if your vet is unable to diagnose or treat it during our internal medicine checks.

  • Reproductive Issues

    Our veterinary team at Stoney Pointe Pet Hospital in Rochester understands the financial and personal investment that goes into properly breeding companion animals. If your pet is having problems with reproduction, our veterinarians will work with you to diagnose the problem and recommend treatment options.

  • Immunology (immune system disorders)

    The immune system of your pet is in charge of detecting foreign invaders or abnormal cells and initiating defensive action to protect the animal's health. However, the immune system does not always function properly, and your pet may be diagnosed with an immune-mediated disorder.

    Anemia, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, hypothyroidism, allergies, and skin diseases are all examples of immune-mediated disorders in dogs and cats.

  • Pulmonary Disorders (diseases of the lungs)

    The respiratory system of your pet is responsible for two critical functions: delivering oxygen to the body and removing waste gases like carbon dioxide. Your pet's respiratory system also helps regulate body temperature because dogs and cats don't sweat as people do.

    Pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), canine distemper virus, and lung tumors are all common in dogs.

    Asthma, bronchitis, parasitic worms, bacterial infections, and viruses are all common pulmonary diseases in cats.

  • Gastroenterology (digestive organs)

    Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders are a frequent occurrence in our Rochester veterinarians' practice of internal medicine. GI disorders affect your pet's stomach and intestines, impairing the animal's ability to digest and absorb nutrients properly.

    Symptoms of gastrointestinal problems in pets include blood in the stool, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, gas, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and weight loss.

  • Oncology (tumors and cancer)

    Cancer can affect even the healthiest humans and animals. When detected early, cancers in dogs and cats can be treated with surgery, therapy, and other methods.

    Mast cell tumors, melanoma, lymphoma, and bone cancer are all common in dogs. Lymphoma, feline leukemia virus (FeLV), mammary cancer, and skin cancer are common cancers in cats.

    If our veterinarians cannot diagnose or treat your pet's cancer, we will refer you to a veterinary oncologist near Rochester.

  • Urology (urinary functions, genitourinary tract)

    Urology issues such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) in dogs and feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) in cats are also covered by veterinary internal medicine.

    The kidneys, the tubes that carry urine to the bladder, the bladder, and the urethra, which conducts urine out of your animal's body, are all part of your pet's urinary tract. Any part of the urinary tract system can be affected by urinary tract disorders.

  • Endocrinology (glands and their functions)

    A number of glands work tirelessly to secrete essential hormones into your pet's body. The endocrine system of your pet is made up of these glands and hormones. Skin problems and poor coat condition can be signs that your pet's endocrine system isn't working properly.

  • Neurology (brain and nervous system disorders) 

    Neurology is a subspecialty of veterinary internal medicine that deals with the brain and spinal cord disorders, as well as neuromuscular dysfunction. Seizures, IVDD, and tumors are some of the most common neurological disorders in dogs and cats.

    If your animal requires neurologic diagnoses or treatment that is beyond the scope of our experienced veterinarians, we will gladly refer you to an animal internal medicine specialist or veterinary neurologist near Rochester. Our veterinarians will collaborate closely with your specialist to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
