Our Veterinary Internal Medicine Services
Our veterinary internal medicine specialist is skilled at diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular, immune, pulmonary, gastrointestinal and endocrine systems in a safe, compassionate manner.
If your pet has symptoms or an illness that cannot be diagnosed or treated by your family veterinarian, they can be referred to an internal medicine specialist for more advanced care.
At Columbia River Veterinary Specialists, we take a comprehensive, team-based approach to our cases and work with not only your veterinarian but also other specialists to ensure your pet receives the best care.
