Receiving a diagnosis of a serious illness in your pet can be overwhelming, and the staff at Canandaigua Veterinary Hospital is here to support you every step of the way. With our experienced team and access to board-certified specialists, we ensure that your pet receives the highest level of service and compassion during this difficult time.

Compassion and Excellence in Care

Internal medicine includes any service that may be used in treatment of a disease, injury, or other condition occurring within your pet’s body. This includes the following areas of:

 

  • Cardiology: Diseases and abnormalities of the heart
  • Endocrinology: Diseases related to glands/hormones
  • Gastroenterology: Disorders and conditions of the digestive tract
  • Hematology: Disorders of the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic systems
  • Neurology: Disorders of the nervous system
  • Oncology: The diagnosis of cancer and various treatment options
  • Urology: Conditions of the urinary tract and related systems
Blood Pressure
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a significant health concern for which there are many underlying causes, including specific disease conditions, certain medications, and age. Through a fairly quick and easy process, we can check your pet’s blood pressure and alert you to any potential issues or problems. Blood pressure screening is routinely recommended for acute and chronically ill pets, as well as senior pets.
Making a Referral

Depending on your pet’s diagnosis, the team at Canandaigua Hospital may refer you to one of Monroe Veterinary Associates’ trusted specialists for treatment. Common examples of conditions for which we might make a referral are:

Anemia or other blood disorders
Chronic vomiting or diarrhea
Endocrine diseases
Infectious diseases
Kidney or bladder diseases
Respiratory problems
Transfusion services
Unexplained weight loss

We may also recommend specialized treatment/consultation in the following situations:

A sophisticated procedure is required that is only available through a specialty hospital
