Internal Medicine

While our focus is on wellness care and disease prevention, you can also rely on our skilled and compassionate medical team when your pet is sick. To that end, an important part of our practice is the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of diseases that can affect your pet's internal organs and body systems.

Our veterinarians, supported by our skilled medical team and advanced diagnostic technology, have expertise in many areas of internal medicine, including endocrinology, infectious disease, kidney failure, liver failure, gastroenterology, cardiology, ophthalmology, pulmonary disease, geriatric disease and neurology.

Glaucoma Prevention

Glaucoma is a common condition in which the fluid pressure inside the eye increases, resulting in damage to the optic nerve, followed by loss of vision and blindness. There are two types of glaucoma. Primary (or chronic) glaucoma is hereditary or develops as your pet ages. Secondary (or acute) glaucoma develops as the result of an injury or illness. Because secondary glaucoma can progress rapidly, it is considered an emergency situation.

Symptoms of glaucoma to look for include:

  • Redness in the eye
  • Tearing or discharge
  • Eye sensitivity to light
  • Pain
  • Cloudy-looking eye
  • Bulging eyeball

At Wheatland Animal Clinic, we recommend your pet receives a routine glaucoma exam as part of his or her regular wellness care. The exam is not only an effective screening measure for chronic and acute glaucoma, it can also help set a baseline measurement of your pet's normal intraocular pressure (IOP). Establishing an IOP baseline is important because the normal measurement can vary between species, breeds, and even individual pets.

This is a noninvasive, simple procedure that should not cause your pet any pain or discomfort. We apply a mild anesthetic eye-drop to ensure your pet is comfortable during the exam.

Enid Pet HealthAllergies and Skin Problems in Pets

Allergies and skin problems are quite common in dogs and cats of all breeds and backgrounds, typically due to fleas, but can also be the result of food or an inhaled irritant like dust or pollen. The most common symptom associated with allergies is itching of the skin, either localized or generalized. Other symptoms include:

  • Red, raised, scaly areas on the skin
  • Bumps, crusts or pus filled vesicles on the skin
  • Increased skin pigmentation
  • Thickened skin
  • Loss of hair
  • Salivary staining (brown color)
  • Head shaking

Our veterinarians extensive experience diagnosing and treating skin conditions and allergies. Should your pet be experiencing a problem, we offer serum allergy testing, hypoallergenic food allergy trials, skin biopsies and skin cytology.

If your pet exhibits any of the symptoms listed, please make an appointment at our animal clinic. If left untreated, allergic reactions and skin conditions can become serious medical concerns.

Oncology: Treating Your Pet's Cancer

At Wheatland Animal Clinic, the standard treatment for almost all pet cancers is surgical removal of the mass. Benign cancers in an accessible, well-defined area are almost always permanently cured by surgical removal. Surgery is also the best treatment for the majority of malignant cancers that have not yet spread. Recovery from most surgery is rapid and post-surgical pain is controllable using appropriate medications.

Should it be in the best interest of your pet following surgery, we can also refer you to a veterinary oncologist for chemotherapy.

Before making the decision on the appropriate course of action for your pet, please discuss all the relevant factors with our medical team so you can make an informed choice. Our understanding of cancer is increasing all the time, leading to better treatment approaches, optimal quality of life and improved outcomes.

Health Care for Enid PetsYour Pet's Nutrition

Proper nutrition and a balanced diet, along with fresh, clean water, are essential ingredients for your pet's overall good health. As your pet's caregiver, nutrition is the most significant health variable you control. Making the best nutritional choices for your dog or cat not only effects general health, but will improve the quality and length of your pet's life.

To support your efforts, our veterinarians perform a thorough body condition evaluation during every physical examination and offers weight loss counseling if needed. We also utilize Hills Healthy Weight Protocol, which uses your pet's body measurements to calculate your pet's ideal weight and then produces customized feeding plans. For your convenience, we will email the program to you for easy reference at home.

Prescription Diets

Some pets have serious nutritional challenges or chronic conditions that benefit from feeding a special prescription diet. Making this change can have a significant positive impact on your pet's overall health and well-being.

Prescription diets benefit medical conditions such as liver disease, bladder and kidney disease, digestive problems, renal failure, food allergies, diabetes and more. Wheatland Animal Clinic carries Hill's Prescription Diets and Royal Canin for your pet and we are happy to recommend one that will best meet your pet's needs.

Behavior Counseling

Even with the right training and lots of attention and love, your dog or cat can develop bad habits or unwanted behaviors. Please don't make the mistake of believing you and your family must live with these problems or worse, consider giving up your pet.

Wheatland Animal Clinic offers behavior counseling for many of your pet's problems, including inappropriate urination or defecation, urine marking, aggression, separation anxiety, destructiveness, thunderstorm anxiety and other phobias, and cognitive dysfunction.

Our assessment begins with your pet's clinical history and a thorough medical examination. Before beginning behavior therapy, any medical problems that have been diagnosed will be treated.
