What is internal Medicine?

At the Southern Arizona Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center (SAVS), we diagnose and treat a wide variety of veterinary internal medicine disorders, including endocrine (Diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, Cushing’s disease, Addison’s disease, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and disorders of calcium metabolism), gastrointestinal, urinary, respiratory, and hematological and infectious diseases. Our internal medicine service utilizes state-of-the-art endoscopic equipment to non-invasively examine the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, nose and upper airways, and urinary bladder. We utilize a wide variety of endoscopic and biopsy procedures to treat our patients.
