BluePearl Seattle’s collaborative approach to internal medicine gives pets with complex medical problems access to the best possible treatment resources. Our internal medicine specialists are board-certified diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and have extensive experience and skill working with patients requiring advanced diagnostics and specialized care.
The practice of internal medicine encompasses a wide range of disorders, including hormonal abnormalities (such as diabetes), immune disorders, gastrointestinal diseases, chronic respiratory problems and urinary issues. Internal medicine specialists focus on the treatment and long-term management of these diseases, working in collaboration with your family veterinarian.

They are skilled in endoscopic procedures and also work closely with our board-certified radiologist to obtain diagnostic images, such as ultrasounds and computed tomography (CT) scans.
