MedVet Cleveland Now Offering Internal Medicine Services to Pets

January 8, 2024

MedVet, the leader in specialty and emergency healthcare for pets, is expanding its specialty care options for Cleveland pets. The hospital is now offering Internal Medicine with Dr. Sarah Lorbach.

“We’re thrilled to offer internal medicine care for Cleveland pets,” said Dr. Diane Wilson, Medical Director. “Adding this specialty expands the services we can provide to pets and their loving families. There are many chronic illnesses and conditions that pets experience that impact their quality of life. Having a board-certified specialist to help address these concerns will make a significant impact on our patients’ lives.”

Conditions commonly treated by Internal Medicine include blood disorders, endocrine diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, geriatric diseases, immune-mediated disorders, infectious diseases, kidney and urogenital diseases, liver problems, pancreatic disorders, and respiratory diseases. MedVet Cleveland also offers advanced diagnostics to support internal medicine treatment needs which includes endoscopic procedures (such as bronchoscopy and colonoscopy) as well as CT scans, X-rays, MRI, and more.

MedVet Cleveland’s expert Internal Medicine department is comprised of a Board-Certified Small Animal Internal Medicine Specialist, Dr. Sarah Lorbach, with a highly trained support team who uses state-of-the-art equipment and progressive medical techniques to provide comprehensive care for dogs and cats.

With a special interest in kidney and gastrointestinal disease, Dr. Lorbach says her favorite part of practicing veterinary medicine is building relationships with families and being able to witness the special bond they have with their pets.

“I’m excited to join the team at MedVet Cleveland to provide exceptional internal medicine care for pets,” said Dr. Lorbach. “Determining the cause of an issue with a pet’s internal body systems can be a challenge since they can’t tell us what they’re experiencing. Our team is here to find the cause of the discomfort and do all we can to give pets the best quality of life and more time with their loving families.”

Pet owners can speak with their family veterinarian to obtain a referral for specialty care. Dr. Lorbach will see patients by appointment at MedVet Cleveland located at 20400 Emerald Parkway, Cleveland, OH 44135. For more information, visit or contact the hospital at 216.362.6000.
