Pets with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, Cushing's disease, or Addison's disease, need appropriate ongoing treatment. The experienced team at Mountainside Veterinary Hospital is committed to providing your pet with top-notch care, as well as offering you the support you need to manage your pet’s medical condition.
First and foremost, an accurate diagnosis is critical when we suspect a severe, chronic illness may be impacting your pet’s health. We have advanced diagnostic tools, including endoscopy, ultrasound, and an in-house laboratory, so we can quickly diagnose your pet’s condition.
Internal medicine can involve the following health conditions (just to name a few):
- Blood disorders, including anemia
- Acute digestive disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease
- Addison’s or Cushing’s disease
- Renal insufficiency
- Respiratory conditions, including asthma
- Immunodeficiency diseases
- Dysfunction of the liver or pancreas
While these conditions are serious, many of them are manageable. With early detection and proper treatment, your pet can live a long, happy life.
We’ll work with you to create the treatment plan that’s best for both you and your pet. Our goal is to help your pet maintain a high quality of life. We do that by closely monitoring their condition, checking for any changes or disease progression so our treatment plan can be adjusted accordingly.
We encourage you to contact us if your pet exhibits any new or unusual symptoms.
