Veterinary Internal Medicine Consults in Arlington

Caring for Your Pet’s Complex Health Matters

At Arlington South Veterinary Hospital, we are proud to offer in-hospital referrals to a veterinary internal medicine specialist. At its most basic, internal medicine pertains to your pet’s insides. When your pet has an illness or injury in their internal organs, we are able to diagnose and begin treating them at our clinic. Once your pet has been evaluated by our team, we can then refer your pet to specialists for a variety of veterinary practices, such as surgery, dermatology, ophthalmology, dentistry, and/or oncology, depending on your pet’s needs.

If you believe your pet can benefit from an internal medicine consult in Arlington, call our team at (817) 465-1401 or contact us online for more information.

Why Internal Medicine?

Our veterinary team at Arlington South Veterinary Hospital may recommend an internal medicine consultation if we suspect that your pet has a serious or complicated medical condition, or if we are otherwise having trouble diagnosing your pet’s condition. An internal medicine specialist has advanced training in understanding your pet’s internal systems, how they work, and how disease can affect the function of these systems.

These consultations can help diagnose conditions such as:

  • Gastrointestinal diseases
  • Kidney and bladder diseases
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Infectious diseases
  • Autoimmune diseases

While our diagnostic services can help diagnose some diseases and injuries, particularly complex or difficult to pin down issues may need the help of an internal medicine specialist to properly diagnose. We want to be sure that your pet is getting all of the care they require, which is why we may suggest an internal medicine consult.

What to Expect During an Internal Medicine Consult

When you bring your pet in for an internal medicine consult, our specialist will review all of your pet’s medical history, including recent diagnostic tests, and perform a physical exam of your pet. We’ll ask you questions and answer any questions that you might have about your pet’s condition. We may recommend additional testing, such as ultrasounds or endoscopic procedures, to get another view of your pet’s health condition. After we are able to better diagnose your pet, we may make a referral to a specialist for further treatment.

Typically, if we need to run certain diagnostic tests, we ask that pets fast the night before their consultation. Water is fine, but please make sure that they don’t eat. We’ll let you know any special instructions you need to follow before your pet’s visit.
