Endocrinology is a branch of medicine which is often thought of as a sub-specialty of internal medicine, and it deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones within the body. Endocrinology covers such animal functions as the coordination of metabolism, respiration, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement. Endocrinology also focuses on the endocrine glands and tissues that secrete hormones. At Memorial 610 Hospital for Animals, our doctors and nurses are well trained and equipped to manage many of the common endocrine disorders seen in our canine and feline patients. We routinely manage Diabetes Mellitus, Insulinomas, Hypothyroid disease, Hyperthyroid disease, Hyperadrenocorticism (Cushing’s), Hypoadrenocorticism (Addison’s), Hyperparathyroidism, and Diabetes Insipidus, to name a few.
