Caring Vets Prevent, Diagnose & Treat Diseases Exclusively for Dogs & Cats
Veterinary internal medicine is the practice of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of non-surgical illnesses and conditions in your pets. Center City Veterinary Hospital has veterinarians experienced in canine and feline internal medicine, including the treatment of chronic diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, Addison’s disease, Cushing’s disease, chronic kidney failure, chronic liver disease and cancer.
Focusing on Preventive Care
The specific life stages of dogs and cats require trained awareness of related diseases and conditions. Concerns that are typical of specific life stages include the following:
- Puppies and Kittens
- Distemper, respiratory issues, and intestinal parasites
- Adult Dogs and Cats
- Obesity, periodontal disease, allergies, and genetic disorders, and endocrine diseases such as diabetes
- Senior Pets
- Cancers, bone and joint disorders such as arthritis, diabetes, cognitive dysfunction/decline (senility), heart disease, and nutritional concerns
Regular wellness exams and dental care offer a strong level of protection against the development of many diseases and conditions, from gum disease to obesity.
In the puppy and kitten stage, the vaccination series offers effective protection against many deadly or debilitating diseases, such as distemper and respiratory illnesses. With regular wellness care and boosters, these vaccines offer lifetime protection.
Veterinary Diagnostics & Treatment
In adult and senior pets, wellness exams and diagnostics allow us to find developing problems at their earliest stages and initiate treatment. This is the best practice for dogs and cats, providing optimum opportunity for recovery with the least amount of discomfort and intervention. Benefits for pet owners include the least amount of visits to the vet, providing treatment, and cost.
Our in-house laboratory and digital radiology department provide modern diagnostics for fast and accurate results. For complex or advanced testing, we use a reputable veterinary reference laboratory with rapid results and online consultation.
Medical treatments include the convenience of our pharmacy, for prescription medications, preventive products, and nutritional support. Our compassionate team utilizes the latest in pain control, for uncomfortable patients, until healing begins and recovery is achieved. We are committed to comfort and quality of life for every patient, from the puppy and kitten stage until end of life.
