Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine, as clinical specialty, dedicated solely to medical diseases integraing and coordinating diseases and treat the patient like a whole.

Orthopedics and Traumatology

The use of high-quality imaging equipment in ultrasound and digital radiography enhances the correct diagnosis of trauma or orthopedic conditions that affect either the dog or the cat. In addition, we resorted to the most current treatments and indicated for each specific case.

Gastroenterology

The gastrointestinal system remains one of the most representative in terms of diseases in clinical practice. Young animals are especially affected by gastroenteritis (dietary indiscretion or parasites) and ingestion of foreign bodies, while the geriatric suffer mainly from chronic diseases at accessory glands and intestine.

In this area is necessary to use diverse additional diagnostic means in ways to obtain a definitive diagnosis, including abdominal ultrasonography, endoscopy accompanied by biopsy, simple or contrast radiography and blood tests (CBC and biochemistry).

Cardiology

The cardiac changes can lead to severe clinical conditions and its prevalence in pets very high.

Echocardiography and Electrocardiography are very useful diagnostic tests in patients with suspected heart disease and the use of Doppler echocardiography allows the approach to heart structure and function.

Using the same technique but choosing a color flow mapping, you can observe the blood direction and velocity within the heart chambers.

Electrocardiography will, in turn, evaluate the heart's electrical activity, essential to its funtion.

Pulmonology

The evaluation of respiratory tract diseases of dogs and cats progressed considerably in last years. The current methods allow greater accuracy in its evaluation, without leaving the choice of na appropriate technique and the correct interpretation of results.

Ophthalmology

Also the eyes may be site of primary or secundary disease and, therefore, has a need for careful and appropriate evaluation of this organ. The ophthalmology service aims to provide medical and surgical treatment of eye problems that may affect the eyesight of your pet.

Neurology

Neurology is a clinical area in growing expansion. It is becoming increasingly frequent the recourse to CT (computed tomography) and the collection of CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) to reach a definitive diagnosis, which sometimes is not easy. Both the central and the peripheral diseases require a cautious approach, to all organ systems, because are endocrine, metabolic or toxicological situations that may lead to clinical signs that mimic neuropathies. Should be made a full clinical examination of the animal, complete with a careful neurological examination and may necessary use simple radiographs or myelographs and blood tests.

Dermatology

Dermatological diseases are very common in our companion animals and may compose a primary disease of the skin or be a reflection of systemic disease. To formulate a correct diagnosis is necessary to do diverse skin tests, including skin scraping to identify mites, trichogram, fungal culture (TMD), cytology (FNA or by affixing), histopathology (biopsies) and intradermal tests. These tests are relatively easy to perform and allow an immediate result, with the exception of the last three. The therapeutic approach is usually lengthy and complex, requiring that the owners have enough understanding and availability.

Urology

The kidneys have like main functions the elimination of toxic substances from the metabolism and the maintenance of electrolyte balance and acid-base balance of th body, being vital an early approach when you suspect renal disease. Moreover, the urinary tract is home to numerous bacterial diseases whose treatment should undergo by an appropriate approach. To obtain a correct diagnosis is essential to resort to cystocentesis, to abdominal ultrasound and to biochemistry.

Oncology

Average lifespan of our pets has increased, mainly due to preventive medicine and to the improvement of care. Consequently, we have an increasing number of cancer cases and its mainly diagnosed based on cytology and histopathology of suspicious masses. Most of such diseases through to the surgery, using sometimes chemotherapy as adjuvant treatment.

Reproduction

This service aims to provide treatment of diseases associated with genital tract. Examples are high-risk pregnancies, complicated births and the existence of serious infections. Here, ultrasound and vaginoscopy have particular importance for the definitive diagnosis.

Nutrition

The feeding influences health and vitality of our pets and is a rapidly expanding area, never forgotten for us.
