    Our team of veterinary professionals at Bound Brook Veterinary Clinic in Middlesex understands the financial investment and personal commitment that go into breeding companion animals properly. If your animal is experiencing reproductive difficulties, our vets will work to diagnose the issue and offer appropriate treatment options to help resolve the problem. 

  • Immunology (immune system disorders)

    Your pet's immune system is what is responsible for detecting foreign invaders and abnormal cells and starting action to protect your companion from these infections. However, your pet's immune system doesn't always work how it should. In cases like this, they will be diagnosed with an immune-mediated disorder. 

    Common immune-mediated disorders in dogs and cats include anemia, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, hypothyroidism, allergies, and skin diseases.

  • Pulmonary Disorders (diseases of the lungs)

    Your pet's respiratory system does the essential work of delivering oxygen to the body and eliminating waste gases such as carbon dioxide. Because dogs and cats don't sweat the way people do, your pet's respiratory system also plays a key role in regulating body temperature.

    There are a number of pulmonary disorders commonly seen in dogs, from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease to pneumonia, lung tumors and distemper. 

    Common pulmonary disorders in cats include asthma, bronchitis, parasitic worms, bacterial infections, and viruses. 

  • Gastroenterology (digestive organs)

    Gastrointestinal disorders are commonly occurring internal medicine conditions. Our veterinarians are able to treat [SIETWIDE][LOCATION] pets for all manner of health issues affecting your pet's stomach or intestines and their ability to properly digest food and absorb its nutrients. 

    Pets suffering from GI problems often experience symptoms such as blood in stool, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, gas, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and weight loss.

  • Oncology (tumors and cancer)

    Cancer is a disease that can impact even the fittest humans and animals. When diagnosed in the earliest stages, in many cases cancers in dogs and cats can be treated with a combination of surgeries, therapies, and other methods.

    Some of the most common cancers in dogs include mast cell tumors, melanoma, lymphoma, and bone cancer. In cats, some of the most common cancers include lymphoma, mammary cancer, and skin cancer.

    If your pet requires diagnosis or cancer care beyond the scope of our skilled veterinarians, we will refer you to a veterinary oncology specialist near Middlesex.  

  • Urology (urinary functions, genitourinary tract)

    Veterinary internal medicine also covers urology conditions such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) in dogs and feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) in cats.

    Your pet's urinary tract consists of their kidneys, the tubes that carry urine to the bladder, the bladder, and the urethra that conducts urine out of your animal's body. Urinary tract disorders can affect any part of this system.  

  • Endocrinology (glands and their functions)

    Essential hormones are secreted into your pet's body thanks to the hard work of a number of glands. These glands and hormones are your pet's endocrine system. When your pet's endocrine system isn't working the way it should, symptoms can include skin problems and poor coat condition. 

  • Neurology (brain and nervous system disorders) 

    Neurology is a branch of veterinary internal medicine covering conditions of the brain and spinal cord as well as neuromuscular dysfunction. Some of the most common neurological disorders in dogs and cats include seizures, IVDD, and tumors.
