Internal Medicine Services From Your Greensboro Emergency Veterinarian

Emergency veterinarian services

If your pet's internal organs develop an acute problem, his life may hang in the balance. Breathing problems, difficult labor, dangerous urinary blockages, GDV ("bloat") and other internal emergencies can occur for a variety of reasons and with little to no warning. In such a crisis, you need to know exactly where to go for emergency internal medicine -- and that destination needs to be Happy Tails Veterinary Emergency Clinic. Your Greensboro emergency veterinarian is willing and able to diagnose the problem and provide immediate treatment at our clinic.

Internal Medicine From Your Greensboro Veterinarian

The term "internal medicine" isn't as vague as it may sound -- it specifically refers to disorders of the heart, lungs, digestive system, urinary system, abdomen and major abdominal organs such as the liver and kidneys. Internal medicine also includes endocrine (glandular) problems which may involve the thyroid, pancreas and other hormone-producing structures. Any of these systems can be subject to emergency situations that can threaten your pet's life. Examples include:

Digestive system emergencies - One of the most common digestive emergencies is gastric dilatation-volvulus. GDV ("bloat") is a twisting of the stomach that prevents the passage of food and calls for emergency surgical intervention.

Heat stroke - Heat stroke may be due to the combination of hot temperatures, lack of water/shade and a brachycephalic (flat-nosed) face. When the body loses its ability to regulate its internal temperature, fatal organ failure may result. Our emergency care can stabilize your pet's temperature.

Urinary emergencies - Bladder stones, kidney stones, internal lesions and other obstacles in the urinary tract may cause dangerous urinary blockages, causing toxins to build up in the blood. Catheterization to remove the blockage, combined with fluids to dilute the toxins, can save your pet's life.

Difficult labor - Dystocia, or difficult labor, can endanger the lives of mother and babies alike. Your Greensboro veterinarian can provide careful manual assistance to facilitate a normal delivery. If normal delivery turns out to be impossible, we can perform a Cesarean section.

Poison or foreign object ingestion - Many of the substances and objects that tempt your pet can have disastrous effects on his insides. We can provide the correct form of poison control to neutralize or remove a poisonous substance without doing further damage to your pet's digestive system. Foreign objects can be removed manually or surgically, depending on their location in the body.

Respiratory emergencies - Severe asthma, allergic reactions, choking and other respiratory emergencies can suffocate your pet without prompt care. We can take whatever steps are necessary to open up the airway and relieve the cause of respiratory constriction.
