Internal medicine

The VTH's Internal medicine unit is responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases requiring a medical approach. Veterinarians of the unit provide specialist consultations to self-employed veterinary professionals who seek a second opinion, as well as owners whose pet needs a specialist examination.

In addition to more traditional medical services, such as vaccinations and blood sampling, other services include:

  • internist and oncology examinations
  • abdominal echography
  • video endoscopy (respiratory and gastro-intestinal tracts)
  • glucose tolerance test

The unit's staff is composed as follows:

  • Prof. Carlo Guglielmini (Head of Unit)
