Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine services are available for elective and emergency cases. We provide advanced diagnostic procedures, treatments, and care on an inpatient and outpatient basis. We have the expertise and experience to hospitalize and treat many challenging medical conditions including infectious diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, pleuropneumonia, pleuritis, liver and kidney disease, neurological disorders and compromised neonates.

These services are supported by our in-house laboratory services which include hematology, blood gas analysis, serum lactate measurement, and serum chemistry analysis. Horse-side clinical laboratory tests also include rapid quantitative measurement of Serum Amyloid A in the blood, a new test which identifies inflammation and more particularly, infection in the body. Bacteriology, cytology, and parasitology are also offered in our in-house laboratory. We use the services of several outside laboratories for various other testing including Equine Infectious Anemia (Coggin’s) testing, histopathology (biopsy), EPM and Lyme Disease testing, and many other tests and analyses.
