Internal Medicine for Cats & Dogs, Glendale

Internal Medicine Conditions

Is your pet displaying symptoms of an internal condition? Your vet will perform a comprehensive physical exam for your pet to diagnose their medical issue and develop a detailed treatment plan geared to their needs. 

Our veterinarians diagnose and treat illnesses in these areas:

  • 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. 

    If your vet is unable to diagnose or treat your dog or cat's heart condition as part of our internal medicine checks we will be sure to forward you to a Board Certified Internal Medicine Vet near Glendale, and work with your specialist to ensure that your pet receives the very best care. 

  • Reproductive Issues

    Our team of veterinary professionals at Limehouse Veterinary Clinic in Glendale understands the financial investment and personal commitment that go into breeding companion animals properly. If your animal is experiencing reproductive difficulties, our vets will work to diagnose the issue and offer appropriate treatment options to help resolve the problem. 

  • Immunology (immune system disorders)

    Your pet's immune system is responsible for detecting foreign invaders or abnormal cells and beginning defensive action to protect the animal's health. That said, the immune system doesn't always work as it should, in which case your pet will be diagnosed with an immune-mediated disorder.

    Common immune-mediated disorders in dogs and cats include anemia, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, hypothyroidism, allergies, and skin diseases.

  • Pulmonary Disorders (diseases of the lungs)

    Your pet's respiratory system does the essential work of delivering oxygen to the body and eliminating waste gases such as carbon dioxide. Because dogs and cats don't sweat the way people do, your pet's respiratory system also plays a key role in regulating body temperature.

    There are a number of common pulmonary disorders seen in dogs, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), canine distemper virus, pneumonia, and lung tumors.

    Common pulmonary disorders in cats include asthma, bronchitis, parasitic worms, bacterial infections, and viruses. 

  • Gastroenterology (digestive organs)

    Gastrointestinal (GI) conditions are another common internal medicine issue our Glendale veterinarians often see in pets. GI disorders impact your pet's intestines and stomach, disrupting the animal's ability to properly digest food and absorb nutrients. 

    Pets experiencing GI problems often suffer from symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, gas, vomiting, weight loss, abdominal pain, loss of appetite and blood in their stool.

  • Oncology (tumors and cancer)

    Even the healthiest humans and animals can be affected by cancer. If diagnosed in its earliest stages, in many cases cancers in cats and dogs can be treated with a combination of therapies, surgeries and other methods. 

    Some common cancers in dogs include melanoma, lymphoma, mast cell tumors, and bone cancer. In cats, common cancers include feline leukemia virus (FeLV), lymphoma, skin cancer and mammary cancer. 

    If your pet requires diagnosis or cancer care beyond the scope of our skilled veterinarians, we will refer you to a veterinary oncology specialist near Glendale. 

  • Urology (urinary functions, genitourinary tract)

    Urology conditions such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) in dogs and feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) also fall under veterinary internal medicine. 

    Your pet's urinary tract consists of the bladder, kidneys (tubes that carry urine to the bladder) and the urethra that transports urine out of your animal's body. Any part of this system can be impacted by urinary tract disorders.  

  • Endocrinology (glands and their functions)

    A number of glands in your pet's body work to secrete essential hormones. These glands and hormones make up your pet's endrocrine system. A malfunctioning endocrine system can lead to symptoms such as poor coat condition and skin problems. 

  • Neurology (brain and nervous system disorders) 

    Neurology is another branch of veterinary internal medicine. It involves conditions of the brain and spinal cord, in addition to neuromuscular dysfunction. The most common neurological disorders in dogs and cats include tumors, IVDD and seizures. 

    If your animal needs diagnoses or care for neurological conditions that are beyond the scope of our experienced veterinarians, we will be happy to refer you to an animal internal medicine specialist or veterinary neurologist near Glendale. Our vets will work closely with your specialist to ensure that your pet receives the best treatment possible.
