Veterinary Internal Medicine in Lacey, WA

At Rainier West Veterinary Hospital, we offer quality internal medicine services for dogs and cats to address chronic diseases and disorders of their internal systems. We're fully equipped and prepared to diagnose, treat, and manage even the most challenging cases. Our goal is to enhance the health and quality of life of the animals in our care. 

Veterinary Diagnostic Testing - An Overview

Dr. Doyle and her team utilize advanced tools to diagnose and treat a range of chronic conditions. Our thorough physical exams, in-house laboratory, digital radiography, and ultrasound imaging produce a wealth of information to allow us to provide the best recommendations for ongoing health and wellness. 

In-House Lab: We perform blood work at our in-house laboratory to diagnose and monitor a variety of health conditions, including diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, pancreatic issues, and some endocrine diseases, to name a few. 

Digital X-Ray Imaging: We utilize digital x-ray imaging as a diagnostic tool to pinpoint problem areas of the chest, abdominal cavity, and bony structures. Digital x-rays help detect abnormal fluid accumulations, lung problems, congestive heart failure, bone tumors, and so much more. Our digital radiology equipment provides clear and detailed images with minimal radiation exposure. 

Ultrasound Imaging: Our ultrasound imaging equipment utilizes sound waves to produce 3-D images of your pet's internal organs, allowing us to evaluate and diagnose potential concerns with great precision. An ultrasound exam can give us a closer look at soft tissues, such as the heart and the gastrointestinal system. The non-invasive procedure detects tumors, urinary stones, liver disease, gallbladder problems, urinary tract inflammation, enlarged spleen, and more!

Managing Chronic Diseases

Dr. Doyle and her team are pleased to treat and manage a range of complex chronic conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, overactive or underactive thyroid glands (hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism), chronic GI conditions, and so much more. 

If not treated and managed, many chronic health conditions can lead to early organ failure. At Rainier West Veterinary Hospital, we carefully monitor our pet patients through routine blood work and diagnostic imaging, as needed, to check for changes or disease progression. With prescription medication, special diets, ongoing veterinary care, and appropriate home care, your pet has the potential to live a long and happy life.
