Veterinary Endocrinology

Address Pet Diabetes & More with a Veterinary Endocrinologist

A veterinary endocrinologist specializes in treating disorders of the endocrine system such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, and other diseases.

As part of your pet’s regular examination, Dr. Bob Biederman determines if treatment of the glands, hormones, or related disorders are necessary. Although every organ system secretes and responds to hormones, endocrinology focuses primarily on the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, testes, and pancreas. We perform a variety of diagnostic tests in our on-site laboratory to determine your pet’s specific needs.

Most endocrine disorders are chronic diseases that need life-long care. Some of the most common endocrine diseases in pets include diabetes and hypothyroidism. Dr. Bob understands the need for accurate diagnosis and is current on the latest breakthroughs in veterinary medicine in treating these chronic diseases.

Care of diabetes and other chronic diseases in pets requires both veterinary medicine and an informed and committed pet owner. Dr. Bob partners with you to determine the best course of treatment for your pet, based on your pet care needs and lifestyle.
