The Internal Medicine Service at Bridger Veterinary Specialists prides itself on exceptional patient care, cutting-edge diagnostics, and a team approach that emphasizes communication and compassion. The team relies on active collaboration within the department and with other specialty services at BVS for the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options available for your pet.
The internal medicine department at BVS is staffed exclusively by board-certified specialists in internal medicine, also referred to as Internists. This means that the registered specialists at BVS have received the most rigorous training and have earned the highest credential available in the field of veterinary internal medicine. For this reason, internists at our hospital are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat complex diseases of the intestinal and urinary tracts, liver, pancreas, kidneys, lungs, blood, endocrine, and respiratory systems, as well as immune-mediated and infectious diseases.
Your family veterinarian may refer you to an internal medicine specialist if your pet has complex issues, if a diagnosis is elusive, or if your pet is not responding appropriately to treatment. If your pet is referred to us, we will work closely with your primary care veterinarian to ensure a seamless level of communication and compassionate care.
