Multiple Disease Management
It is not uncommon, in cats as in people, to have multiple concurrent medical issues. Our doctors have a special interest in geriatric internal medicine and will work closely with you to determine the best possible care for your cat. Complex problems in cats include diabetes, hyperthyroidism, inflammatory bowel disease, and kidney disease.
We use a combination of in-house and outside laboratories, to provide the most accurate and timely results for your cat. Common problems detected with lab work include intestinal parasites, urinary problems, infections, kidney disease, allergies, diabetes, and hyperthyroidism. Fortunately, medical treatment and proper diet are helpful in treating many of these common feline problems.
Ultrasound imaging, performed by a skilled ultrasonographer, can provide detailed information about medical problems without anesthesia or surgery. Both Dr. De Bernardis and Dr. Mustillo have completed specialty training at the SOUND academy in Texas and are available to offer this service in-house.
Our endoscope allows us to perform minimally invasive biopsies and inspect for foreign bodies. Dr. De Bernardis has completed specialty feline endoscopy training at Colorado state and is happy to offer this service.
