Internal Medicine and Soft Tissue Surgery

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI take referrals in all aspects of internal medicine, and some soft tissue surgery, notably thoracotomies and oral cancer work. I regularly manage cases in all aspects of disease – some of the recent include:

  • Management of the unstable diabetic
  • Chemotherapy for lymphoma and many other cancers
  • Adjunctive doxorubicin therapy for many soft tissue or bone cancers
  • Paraneoplastic syndromes
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Polycythaemia
  • Inflammatory bowel disease in dogs and cats
  • Gastric stasis in rabbits
  • Cardiac tamponade
  • VSD (hole in the heart) in a small dog
  • Urinary tract investigations and imaging
  • Polycystic kidney disease
  • Ecopic ureters and incontinence
  • Urinary obstruction
  • Addison’s Disease stabilisation
  • Investigation of acquired murmurs (often HCM) in cats

At Cedarmount we have a good range of diagnostic equipment which facilitates high quality work:

  • Colour Doppler ultrasound (and training and experience in its use)
  • Equipment for accurate blood pressure measurement in dogs and cats
  • A range of rigid and flexible endoscopes – allowing imaging and biopsy of nasal chambers even in cats, stomach, duodenum, colon, vagina and bronchi
  • iStat in house blood gas analysis
  • Robust and accurate blood work using the abc haematology analyser
  • High quality microscope for accurate cytological examination
  • All work is supported by TDDS – Andy Torrance’s lab in Exeter – we are very grateful for his specialist back up which is often invaluable in investigation of difficult cases.

Craig also lectures on occasion to vets and interested groups such as dog breeding clubs. The following are downloadable pdfs of some of the recent talks (including links to some illustrative videos).
