Internal Medicine

What is a Board Certified Internal Medicine Specialist?

Internal medicine is a specialty in veterinary medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders involving multiple organ systems. These include various cancers, endocrine, respiratory, gastrointestinal, hematologic, urinary, immune-mediated, infectious, hepatic, neurological, and cardiac related diseases and disorders.

A board certified veterinary internal medicine specialist (called an internist) is a licensed veterinarian who has successfully completed an additional 4-year post-graduate training in internal medicine. An internist usually becomes involved in a case when a family veterinarian requires more information than traditional knowledge or the diagnostic equipment at his disposal provides. After referral, the internist evaluates the patient, consults with the pet owner and referring veterinarian, and makes recommendations for the most appropriate course of action. This often includes diagnostic testing to properly establish the condition(s) present. The internist then determines the possible treatment options. In addition to advanced training, the internist also has direct consultative access to other veterinary specialists in various other disciplines, ensuring the most complete approach to each patient’s medical and surgical needs.
