Endocrine diseases are very common in both the dog and cat. Some of the more common endocrine diseases that we diagnose and treat include:
- Thyroid disease
- Diabetes mellitus
- Adrenal disease
- Parathyroid disease
During your appointment, we will review your pet’s medical history and perform a thorough physical exam. Following a discussion of the medical history and exam findings, a combination of diagnostics will be recommended and may include:
- Blood and urine analysis
- Imaging - abdominal ultrasound, digital radiographs
- Endocrine diagnostic tests
A comprehensive and individualized treatment plan will be developed for your pet based on your pet’s medical history and the results of the tests performed during this visit. Treatment recommendations typically include oral or injectable medications, dietary modifications, or possibly surgery.
A plan for follow up rechecks and treatments will be determined based on the diagnosis and treatment plan elected during your pet’s visit. We will collaborate with your primary veterinarian to design the best plan for your pet, which may include follow up rechecks with our team or your primary veterinarian.
