Our Veterinary Internal Medicine Services
A cat and dog internal medicine specialist is skilled in the safe and compassionate diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the immune, cardiovascular, pulmonary, urinary, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems.
If your pet has symptoms or an illness that your family veterinarian cannot diagnose or treat, they can be referred to an internal medicine specialist for more advanced care.
We emphasize a comprehensive, team approach to our cases at Bluegrass Veterinary Specialists + Animal Emergency in Lexington and work not only with your veterinarian but also with other specialists to ensure the best care for our patients.
