Nothing is more frustrating and alarming than when your best friend is sick and you don’t know what to do to help. Pets can’t talk to us but, it doesn’t mean they don’t communicate. Owners tell us “he’s just not acting himself” and it is our job to investigate and find answers that help.
Simply said, internal medicine encompasses all the inside parts of your pet. Whether you are seeing sudden or slower chronic symptoms, your pet may be suffering from an unseen disease that will affect her health and longevity. Our veterinarians emphasize non-invasive diagnostic treatment and techniques for diseases such as diabetes, Addison’s disease, chronic kidney disease and more.
Pet owner surveys tell us one of the most troublesome chronic diseases for pets and their owners is skin disease. Late night scratching, tender skin, open sores and hair loss need not be an unescapable part of your life. We have treatments and medications to help.
Heart health is particularly important as your pet ages. Appropriate exercise and nutrition provide a strong foundation during your pet’s adult years but even then, heart disease may develop as they age. The doctors of Macungie Animal Hospital work with local cardiologists to diagnose and provide medical treatment to mitigate the disease process and improve your pet’s everyday life.
