Our Small Animal Internal Medicine Department provides a full clinical referral service in feline and canine medicine.

We accept referrals in endocrinology, haematology, immunology, gastroenterology, pancreas and liver disease, pulmonology, urology/nephrology and infectious diseases.

We offer a comprehensive initial consultation, enabling us to integrate the clinical findings prior to referral with a personalised assessment of the patient and a full discussion with our clients of the diagnostic and treatment options available.

Our ethos is to always put our clients and patients first. We strive to offer the best service and care, with a comprehensive and detailed report following every consultation, and follow-up consultation and advice to ensure that our clients feel supported throughout the treatment process.
