Specialized Internal Medicine Care

A veterinary internal medicine specialist trains in the safe and compassionate diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the immune, cardiovascular, pulmonary, urinary, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems.

If your pet exhibits symptoms or has an illness that your family veterinarian cannot diagnose or treat, they can be referred to an internal medicine specialist for more advanced care.

At Veterinary Referral Associates in Gaithersburg, we take a holistic, team approach to our cases and collaborate with not only your veterinarian but also with other specialists to ensure our patients receive the best care possible.

A specialist in veterinary internal medicine completes additional training in internal medicine, including a one-year internship and a three-year residency following graduation from veterinary school.
