Southside Animal Hospital is fully equipped to provide the best pet internal medicine in Nashville. We believe preventative care is the best medicine for your pet and annual exams and blood and lab tests can help us identify diseases and issues early.
Our doctors can provide care for your pet’s gastrointestinal disorders and kidney, liver and heart disease along with blood disorders, immune deficiencies, bladder, trachea, bronchi and lung conditions. Internal medicine services at Southside Animal Hospital can help diagnose and treat conditions such as Addison’s disease, Cushing’s disease, canine hypothyroidism, diabetes and feline hyperthyroidism along with most infectious diseases in pets.
Unfortunately, pets can develop cancer like humans can and it can be frightening. However, many pets respond extremely well to cancer treatments. Pets do not experience the same side effects from chemotherapy that humans do and many are able to lead long and healthy lives long after their cancer is gone.
After a cancer diagnosis, we will work with a veterinary oncology specialist to develop a plan of treatment for your pet. In some cases, this may include surgical removal of the tumor followed by chemotherapy treatments at our facility.
