Pet Internal Medicine

A common frustration of dealing with a sick pet is that you cannot simply ask them what is wrong. When your pet is not well, we perform a thorough examination, including diagnostic tests when they’re necessary to identify medical conditions.

All the veterinarians at Attleboro Veterinary Clinic are knowledgeable and have expertise in diagnosing and treating complex internal medicine cases such as kidney, heart, respiratory, immune-mediated, and endocrine diseases.

Pet Allergies

Allergy-related conditions can fester and become serious health concerns for your pet, so it’s essential to identify the first signs and symptoms of allergies and dermatological conditions. These include:

Inflamed ears
Lesions on the skin
Hair loss
Red itchy bumps on the skin
Hotspots, especially those that recur
Scratching or rubbing the eyes or mouth area
Asthma-like wheezing or respiratory issues

All of these can indicate a serious dermatological or allergic reaction to allergens such as fleas, pollen, dust, and various foods. If you notice any of these issues it is important that you bring your pet in for an evaluation because if left untreated they can become severe medical concerns. We take the time to explain your pet’s condition, how to prevent future occurrences, and the proper method of home treatment.

Pet Oncology

The diagnosis of cancer is stressful for pet owners, and the prospect of chemotherapy treatments can be equally as difficult. However, pets respond much differently to chemotherapy than humans do, typically with far more resilience. We treat pets with many types of cancer, which can involve surgical removal of tumors. Any follow-up chemotherapy or radiation warrants referral to one of our veterinary oncology specialists.

If referral treatment is not an option, we offer simple, low-cost, and low-impact care to keep our patients as comfortable as possible for as long as possible.

Comprehensive Health Assessments

Regular health assessments are a cornerstone of our pet health maintenance services in Attleboro, MA. During these assessments, our experienced veterinarians conduct thorough physical examinations to monitor your pet’s overall health. These routine check-ups allow us to identify potential health issues early, ensuring prompt treatment and better outcomes.

When to Schedule Maintenance Visits

It is crucial to bring your pet for health maintenance visits at least once a year. However, certain circumstances may require more frequent visits. If your pet is a senior, has a chronic condition, or you notice any changes in their behavior or health, it is essential to schedule an appointment promptly. Regular visits allow us to adjust care plans as needed and address any emerging health concerns.
