Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine Veterinary Specialty Services

We are pleased to have four dedicated internal medicine specialists on staff at VCA Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic. Veterinary internal medicine is related to the diagnosis, management, and nonsurgical treatment of diseases of the respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive organs, as well as the liver, kidneys, and immune and blood systems. Loomis Basin’s internal medicine specialists are experienced with determining both the cause of your pet’s illness and the correct course of medication to be used to heal it.

For example, if your pet is vomiting or having seizures, we know that these symptoms might be caused by a problem that is congenital, acquired later in life, or perhaps by an infectious agent or toxic substance in your pet’s environment. Internal medicine specialists will help to diagnose the cause quickly and efficiently, leading us to the correct course of treatment.

Drs. Erica Queen, Noelani Reinker and Marcia Smith work together as a team of dedicated internal medicine specialists at Loomis Basin.

AAHA Accreditation

In 2009, our internal medicine service was one of the first in the country to achieve referral practice accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association. AAHA accreditation testifies that Loomis Basin meets the highest standards of the veterinary profession for patient care, client and referring veterinarian service, and medical protocols.

Referral accreditation reflects that we follow the same high principles that your regular veterinarian lives by and indicates that we know and understand how important communication is throughout the referral. Working together with your general practice veterinarian, our AAHA accreditation status helps ensure optimal care for your pet.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.

Same-Day Veterinary Care

We understand that sometimes your pet needs to be seen sooner rather than later. To solve this problem, VCA Loomis Basin offers Same-Day Care appointments to accommodate client requests for “emergency” or “urgent” care during normal business hours or last-minute appointment requests. Same-Day Care is a much-needed service that helps keep the regularly scheduled appointments on track; however, clients may have to wait while other pets are being triaged.
