Internal medicine services are provided through our partnership with Dr. Melissa Page. Animal internal medicine is a veterinary specialization that prevents, diagnoses, and treats diseases in animals. Dr. Page is committed to helping manage and cure diseases, disorders, congenital disabilities, and other issues in dogs and cats.
When patients are already hospitalized at AER and need a consult, advanced diagnostics, etc., our Animal ER doctors directly contact Dr. Page regarding cases.
She sees cases at the Animal ER on Wednesday (9 AM-5 PM) and Friday (10 AM-5 PM). Dr. Page is also available on most weekends for consults on emergent cases.
If your pet is displaying disease symptoms, or if you have been referred to us by another veterinarian, please do not hesitate to make an appointment by calling Dr. Page’s staff at 941-773-9482.
