The IndyVet internal medicine team is committed to providing innovative and compassionate care for your pet in partnership with your family veterinarian.
The following guidelines will hasten the diagnosis and treatment of incoming patients:
- Please do not feed your pet after midnight the night before your appointment unless otherwise directed.
- Ask your family veterinarian to e-mail, fax, or provide you with prior lab work, imaging reports, and all records related to your pet’s problem or illness.
At your initial visit, an IndyVet internal medicine doctor will examine your pet, review their medical history, and will discuss your pet’s condition and will recommend any diagnostic tests or suggested courses of medical therapy. Many pets can be treated on an outpatient basis while others may need to spend several days in the hospital to diagnose and manage their condition.
Afternoon and evening visiting hours provide hospitalized patients and their families the opportunity to spend quality time together.
Patients are discharged on an appointment basis. Complete written instructions will be reviewed with each pet owner at the time of discharge to address any questions they may have regarding patient care at home.
