Internal Medicine

Under the leadership of our talented board-certified veterinary internist, Avets’ internal medicine service combines a wide range of information to diagnose and treat your pet in many important areas. By using advanced technology to gather data, studying clinical signs and lab results, and discussing symptoms with the person who knows your pet best—that’s you!—our internal medicine service provides expert insight and treatment for your pet’s situation. Patients are seen by referral appointment and can be managed long-term by our internal medicine service or by your primary care veterinarian.
