内科

internal medicine

内科是对内脏器官疾病的诊断而非外科手术治疗。 这是一个微妙而复杂的学科,需要大量的知识和经验,更不用说耐心和辩证的思维了。

在高登动物医院,专业的内科知识是我们为住院病患服务工作的基础。 我们的两位兽医合伙人是澳大利亚兽医科学家学院的小动物(犬科动物和猫科动物)或猫科动物医学成员,具体如下:

  • David Loneragan(猫科医学)
  • Scott Lackenby(犬科和猫科医学)

相对于只有10%的兽医具有大学学历,我们的合伙人不但拥有非常出色的技能和丰富的经验,他们还在学术上不断专研。

在准备有效治疗的前后,准确的诊断至关重要。 这得靠宠物住院期间或几次来访期间执行的一系列诊断测试。 测试通常是非侵入性的,但是有的需要全身麻醉或镇静剂的注射,列于如下。

  • 造影
  • 超声波
  • 内镜
  • 活检
  • 真菌或细菌等生物体的培养
  • 显微镜透析
  • 血液测试,如器官分析,血液计数,凝血分析和血气分析
  • 尿液测试
  • 电子测试,如血压测量,氧气和二氧化碳水平

兽医会为你提供诊断和治疗的选择以及相关费用,你可以决定什么方案最适合你的宠物和你的家人。

心血管疾病

心血管疾病在我们的老迈的宠物(或者不大老的)中是很常见的,就像人类一样。最常见的综合征是由许多心脏疾病引起的充血性心力衰竭。 宠物也可能有心肌炎和心脏节奏紊乱以及先天性疾病(先天缺陷)。 心丝虫病在我们这个地区是非常罕见,归功于高比例预防性用药,比如年度注射Proheart。

心脏杂音

许多狗被诊断为心脏杂音,特别是逐渐长大的小型狗只。 通常在初诊时,心脏杂音是亚临床的(不会引起任何临床症状)。 心脏杂音不一定意味着心脏衰竭。 但是,通常经过数年的缓慢发展,严重的心脏杂音可能会导致心力衰竭。 因此每年进行一次宠物的健康检查非常重要,你的兽医可以监测出每次检查的杂音严重程度。

呼吸系统疾病

打喷嚏,鼻涕,咳嗽,喘息或呼吸吵杂和呼吸困难都是呼吸系统疾病和其他动物身体系统疾病的征兆。许多小狗生来患有咽喉和鼻子阻塞性疾病,应该尽早检查诊断以避免造成他们终生的损害。 呼吸困难可能是被蜱虫麻痹和其他问题引起 – 你应保持宠物的冷静,立即带他们来接受检查。

X胸透

对于常规治疗无效的呼吸系统疾病,通常建议对宠物采取X胸透(X光)检测,以使我们观察胸部的成像。 通常,这需要对宠物打镇静下来进行(取决于宠物)。

胃肠疾病

动物有胃和肠疾病是非常普遍的。 呕吐,腹泻,过度上厕所或者刚吃完食物是最常见的症状。 病毒感染和寄生虫是狗突出的问题,因为他们容易吃了不应该的东西和喝脏水。 宠物也容易被卡住喉咙(骨头,玉米棒和各种奇怪的东西!),得炎症和癌症,肝脏和胰腺疾病也很常见,尤其是一种称为胰腺炎的疾病。

狗的胰腺炎

这是狗的胰脏器官(负责产生消化酶)的炎症。 当胰腺发炎时,这些酶在胰腺内而不是在消化道内被激活,这会引起腹膜炎(整个腹腔的炎症)。 常见的是,患病的动物腹部酸软,腹部疼痛,伴随急性呕吐。 胰腺炎是危及生命的疾病,具有这些症状的动物需要急忙联系兽医和住院治疗。 在某些情况下,胰腺炎是狗的消化道根本无法处理摄取的脂肪(如培根)的结果。 正是出于这些原因,我们建议狗狗保持一个相当连贯一致的饮食设计的狗,如Hills Science Diet。

泌尿与生殖疾病

肾脏衰竭在老年猫中非常常见,是一种慢性,危及生命的疾病,会引起许多其他问题,如高血压,贫血和电解质(血盐)的变化。 宠物也容易患膀胱炎,就像人类患病一样的痛苦,这会引起病毒感染,膀胱结石和更多严重疾病。 少数动物会出现卵巢,子宫和前列腺等问题,因为大多数的宠物都被结扎了。

肾功能衰竭

慢性肾功能衰竭(肾功能衰竭)的症状通常是过度口渴和过度排尿伴随体重减少。 如果您怀疑您的宠物可能有肾功能衰竭,可以进行血液和尿液检测来确认。 请带上宠物的尿液样本来咨询,如果需要的话,我们也可以为你收集尿样。 高血压通常伴随肾功能衰竭而产生,它可以加剧宠物的肾功能衰竭,所以你的兽医可能会建议检查宠物血压。 在大多数情况下,肾功能衰竭不能治愈,但可以通过不同的药物,饮食和生活方式的改变来改善宠物生活质量。

尿失禁

对于年龄较大的狗特别是雌性犬类,尿失禁是常见的问题,在大多情况下都可以控制这个问题。

荷尔蒙病

狗患有糖尿病和库欣综合征(过度活跃的肾上腺)是相当普遍的。 肥胖的猫也常见患有糖尿病。 甲状腺功能亢进症(甲状腺功能亢进)是在老年猫中发现的最常见的问题之一。

这类疾病的早期征兆包括过度口渴,尿频和体重减轻。 与人类相似,我们可以控制并在某些情况下扭转这些病情。

糖尿病

糖尿病是胰岛素不足(I型)或胰岛素低阻(II型)。 在某些情况下,狗得病的原因可能是由慢性胰腺炎引起的,但在大多数情况下,糖尿病产生原因没有确切的解释。 肥胖(尤其是缅甸猫)已被证明是猫得到II型糖尿病的易感因素。

糖尿病的症状包括过度口渴,排尿过多,有时会发生白内障(后期)。 体重减轻往往是狗患有糖尿病的特点 ,但猫不一定。 如果您注意到宠物有任何这些迹象,请进行咨询,我们能够通过血液检查立即诊断。 就像人类一样,胰岛素注射得越早越好。

可能宠物主人担心如何给你的宠物注射。 然而,在大多数情况下,在教导和多次练习之后,宠物主能自然掌握注射技能。 通常,注射的针头非常小,你的宠物甚至不会注意到他或她正在打针!

甲状腺疾病

甲状腺疾病在猫和狗中都很常见。 在老年猫中,我们看到甲状腺机能亢进(甲状腺功能亢进),症状包括食欲过盛但体重无法增加,偶尔失明(继发于高血压)。 甲状腺功能亢进的猫也可能会喜怒无常。

甲状腺功能减退(甲状腺功能减退)的狗很常见。 症状包括嗜睡,脱发(或被剪断后毛发生长不良)和肥胖。 不幸的是,如果狗只患有其他疾病中 ,甲状腺水平会较低,这会混淆诊断。 在这些情况下,我们通常需要进行更多的检查,以明确甲状腺疾病是最显著的还是由另一种疾病引起的并发症。

Gordon Vet has looked after my golden retriever since she was 9 weeks. Everyone has been amazing and caring with lots of experience. I have been able to ask any questions and always been welcome. Even one day when she stepped on a bee in the evening, they stayed open until we got there and helped her get it out. Thanks to all the staff :-)

Exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dog here for many years and although I now live in the Eastern Suburbs, I still drive across town to see the Vets at Gordon. The staff are highly skilled, compassionate, friendly and helpful. My 9 year old dog has had 2 knee operations (1 on each knee!) and the outcome of these surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I have been incredibly impressed with the care provided during all of our visits. I would highly recommend Gordon Vet Hospital.

Fantastic and friendly staff who you can tell really care about your pet. Their follow up service is also very reassuring. I also board my cat with Gordon Vet and I feel very comfortable to know he's in safe and caring hands. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Compassionate, caring and highly skilled veterinary surgeons who treat their patients and owners with respect. The nursing and administration staff are efficient and remember their patients by name which is a lovely touch. A lovely vet practice which despite our Golden Retriever Finn’s complex medical history, is always welcoming to him and he never displays any signs of anxiety when attending. Dr Helen is lovely and a firm favourite of ours!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!
