Peter Roberts has a post-graduate certificate in internal medicine and is an RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Medicine. As well as offering our own clients a high standard of medical investigation we are also able to accept referrals of challenging medical cases. This may be due to a hard to diagnose condition or to help with management of an ongoing problem.
Abdominal Ultrasound Referrals
An abdominal scan will often be part of a medical referral, we are also able to provide detailed abdominal ultrasounds to the local practices to complement their own investigations, a full detailed report is provided which also includes the benefit of Pete's medical experience rather than just a list of findings.
"I can take referrals for a diversity of medical issues such as chronic vomiting/diarrhoea, unexplained weight loss, liver/kidney disorders and any other medical issue. I am firm believer that medicine is about making an individual practical plan, and a test is only worth doing if it will make a positive impact on the patient and how we can help them.
To complement medical investigations I have undergone advanced training in abdominal ultrasound, followed by the experience of performing regular detailed scans of diverse cases in the hospital setting. I can offer abdominal ultrasound as part of a full medical referral or as an outpatient procedure where a full report is provided to the referring vet. As well as identification of abnormalities I aim to provide a thorough interpretation with medical context and recommendations to aid the ongoing case management, and can offer guided aspirates or biopsies where appropriate."
