**Due to the Covid-19 situation, these services are not currently available and we are referring patients out to specialist centers. We are pleased to be able to offer services at our clinic through a variety of mobile specialists within the lower mainland. These specialists come to our clinic on an appointment basis. These services include:
Ultrasonography: Dr. Laurie Head, D.V.M. Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR)
Ultrasound's utilize sound waves to obtain images of an animal's internal organs and if necessary biopsy internal tissues. Dr. Laurie Head, a board certified veterinary radiologist, visits our clinic to perform ultrasounds on our patients when needed.
Endoscopy: Dr. Eugene Gorodetsky, D.V.M.
Endoscopy is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. A long flexible camera can be guided directly into the body allowing for the collection of tissue samples, removal of foreign bodies and checking for abnormalities within the nasal passage, trachea, stomach and the intestinal tract. Dr. Eugene Gorodetsky operates out of the Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic however he also has a mobile practice allowing him to visit our clinic when our patients are in need of endoscopic services.
Internal Medicine: Dr. Tatjana K. Mirkovic, BSc, DVM, DACVIM (Small Animal)
Small animal internal medicine includes many sub disciplines including gastroenterology (esophageal, stomach and intestinal disease), hepatology (liver and pancreatic disease), endocrinology (hormonal disease), infectious diseases, urology (urinary tract disease), nephrology (kidney disease), respiratory medicine (nose, airway and lung disease), and hematology & immunology (blood cell and immune-disease). In many cases, the signs of a patient may include many of these organ systems. Internal medicine specialists may also manage cases of patients with neurologic, cardiovascular or cancerous diseases, especially when these patients also share diseases within the scope of internal medicine.
