Internal Medicine

Our Internal Medicine and Oncology team manage complex medical conditions and cancers.

We deal with diseases and disorders involving multiple organ systems such as:

  • The gastrointestinal tract and pancreas
  • The liver
  • The respiratory system
  • The endocrine system (hormones)
  • The kidneys and urinary tract
  • And the blood and circulatory system.

As Internal Medicine specialists we act as detectives solving medical puzzles. We are in an optimal position to do this due to our state of the art facilities and equipment available for diagnostic investigations and hospitalisation.

Internal Medicine Facilities

The service is supported by a number of on-site facilities.

On-site Laboratory

Our on-site laboratory provides rapid results for the most commonly requested blood and urinary tests, as well as multiple off-site laboratories across the country and world, carefully selected for their individual expertise.

Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic imaging service provides our internal medicine clinicians with incredible resource that provides invaluable contribution towards achieving accurate diagnoses for our patients. Our diagnostic imaging services comprises of skilled clinicians and technicians as well as quality equipment such as MRI, CT and ultrasonography equipment.

Endoscopy Suite

Our well-equipped endoscopy suite is used every day for the evaluation of gastrointestinal, respiratory and urinary tract conditions. We have an excellent working relationship with the soft tissue surgery service founded on a mutual desire to achieve the best possible outcome for our patients. Strong communication between the two services allows us to determine the optimal course of action and combine the benefits of both a medical and surgical approach to the management of a case. This is particularly important for patients diagnosed with tumours as well as critically ill patients and can certainly make the difference between a successful and unsatisfactory outcome.

Chemotherapy

A significant part of the work in the internal medicine and oncology service is to diagnose and treat various types of cancers. A number of cancers can benefit from chemotherapy. An experienced team of nurses assist in the administration of chemotherapy to our patients. Providing support to owners of dogs and cats undergoing treatment for cancer is a priority as this can be a challenging time for families affected.

About Pride Veterinary Centre

We are proud of the growth of our service since the opening of Pride Veterinary Centre in 2011 which is at least in part due to the high standard of care and quality of service that we provide.

Many conditions and diseases seen in the patients attending the internal medicine and oncology service are chronic and require attentive follow-up. For that purpose, we realise the importance of working in close collaboration with the primary veterinarians who have referred their patients to us.

We strive to provide prompt and complete communication with referring veterinarians as this is essential to ensure that this follow-up is flawless. Depending on the circumstances, the follow-up will be done at Pride Veterinary Centre or at the primary veterinary practice. In the latter situation, we will be happy to help if any questions or concerns arise during the follow-up process.
