Internal medicine

Internal medicine

Internal medicine focuses on the internal organs. We are talking about more specialist problems that cannot be solved with routine veterinary care. Our veterinarian Jill has a special interest in internal medicine, and did an elaborate course in the UK. After a big test, she now has a certificate in this field of work. You can think of problems with:

  • Kidneys and urinary tract
  • Stomach and intestines
  • Liver
  • Pancreas
  • Hormones
  • Blood diseases and the immune system
  • Cancer
  • Infectious diseases

Usually these patients need several appointments and checkups in order to find a diagnosis, and a treatment. Also the internal medicine consultation often takes more time than a regular one. The veterinarian will often advise to do further examinations, such as (extra) blood tests, blood pressure measurement, ultrasound examination, urine/feces test or x-rays. It is often necessary for your pet to be fasted before the internal medicine consultation (for at least 8 hours).
