Our veterinary team at Friendly Animal Clinic in the Greensboro and Guilford College areas will recommend internal medicine procedures or treatments based on your pet's diagnosis and individual needs.
Why might my pet need internal medicine?
Your pet may need internal veterinary medicine to diagnose or treat a number of diseases and disorders that affect their internal systems, such as the lungs, liver, kidneys, or gastrointestinal tract.
At Friendly Animal Clinic, our vets are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of internal issues and have a range of diagnostic and imaging tools and treatment methods available to identify these issues.
Pets that suffer from multiple diseases or disorders, or those that don't typically respond well to standard procedures, can benefit from internal medicine processes.
Diagnostics & Imaging
We take an inclusive approach to internal medicine supported by a range of procedures, protocols, and advanced diagnostic testing and imaging. Your pet's comprehensive health is considered in our treatment recommendations and relies on their medical history, as well as the testing and lab results.

FAQs About Internal Medicine
- How do you identify what health issues my pet might have?
Internal medicine is combined with the findings of your pet's full examination to create a comprehensive understanding of their health.
Diagnosis and treatment recommendations are based on your pet's health, their medical history, and all findings from their bloodwork, lab results, imaging, and any other testing.
This helps our vets to ensure we are treating your pet's health issues at the root and can prevent other secondary issues from developing.
- If my pet has a serious health issue like cancer, what happens?
If your pet has been diagnosed with a condition that we are able to treat in-house, their care will continue at our clinic.
However, if your pet is in need of expertise or a surgery that we cannot do, we will refer you to an experienced specialist that is trained in that field.
Friendly Animal Clinic is affiliated with a network of skilled veterinary specialists in the Greensboro and Guilford College areas.
- What types of tests can your vets perform?
Our veterinarians will recommend a series of tests or advanced diagnostic procedures based on the type and size of your pet, including the following:
- Blood testing
- Soft tissue
We will refer you to a specialist if your pet needs additional diagnostic testing.
