Internal Medicine

We are lucky to have Dr Christina Bradbury, internal medicine specialist, to help us evaluate certain cases. She performs the following procedures and then reports to the referring doctor.

  • Ultrasound
  • Laparoscopic liver biopsies
  • Bone marrow aspirates/biopsies
  • Joint taps
  • Esophagostomy tube, PEG tube placement
  • Collagen injections for urinary incontinence
  • Endoscopy - scoping of the:
    • Stomach and intestines
    • Bronchoscopy (respiratory)
    • Cystoscopy (bladder)
    • Rhinoscopy (nose)
    • Vaginoscopy (reproductive tract)
    • Laryngoscopy (voice box)
    • Esophagoscopy (esophagus)

For cases needing an ultrasound, a summary of the case including history should be provided so Dr. Bradbury may help with recommendations after the procedure. Dr. Bradbury will not be meeting directly with clients for this procedure.

For liver biopsies and certain specific procedures, she will go over the risks and discuss the process with you on the day of the procedure. For most other anesthetic procedures (endoscopy, bronchoscopy, etc) she will call to discuss the findings after the procedure is finished.

Dr. Bradbury will be interpreting biopsies, cultures, fluid analysis, blood tests, copper levels, etc., and will provide her interpretations and recommendations to the referring doctor.

Monica is the internal medicine coordinator and the one to make appointments and handle most questions. Dr. Thiels is the assigned Doctor at Waterhouse Animal Hospital who handles referral cases/client communications for Dr. Bradbury.

I have had nothing but great experiences at Waterhouse. The staff and doctors are always kind, not only to me, but to my fur babies as well. I trust Waterhouse. I know when I take my pet here they will receive quality care.

I love Waterhouse! Everyone is friendly, courteous and goes out of their way to assist. I feel my pets get the best care here that is why I am willing to drive from Merced to have my 3 cats seen at Waterhouse Animal Hospital.

Dr Waterhouse spent time to really understand what was happening. Took extra time to review and evaluate all of my pet's symptoms. She arranged for my pet to be reevaluated the next day.(she was off). I have had a follow up call every day! Thank you.
