Internal medicine

bigdog

We have European and RCVS Recognised Specialists in internal medicine and are supported by diplomate standards in anaesthesia, oncology, neurology, soft tissue surgery, and cardiology. Our nurses are service-specific medicine nurses – all RCVS registered and many have additional Specialist Diplomas and further qualifications. Our patients are cared for throughout the night by MRCVS veterinary interns and nurses. Staffing levels are increased in response to increased patient demands, so that care is never compromised. We have extensive on-site facilities and superb imaging capabilities, including ultrasonography, MRI, CT and fluoroscopy. The team’s endoscopy experience is extensive, having performed thousands of endoscopies.

We hold twice daily ward rounds facilitating clinical case discussions between internal medicine, anaesthesia, neurology and oncology. Further case conferences are held for long-stay inpatients and critical patients to ensure a multi-disciplinary discussion of our more complex patients. It is not only our facilities, but our dedicated colleagues that allow us to offer the highest standards of internal medicine care 7 days a week.
