Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine

We cover all areas of internal medicine, including:

  • Cardiology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Dermatology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Reproduction

We also may refer patients to North Carolina State Veterinary Teaching Hospital or Veterinary Specialty Hospital for specialty consults.

Radiographs (x-rays)

We have digital radiographic technology in our clinic, allowing our staff to instantly visualize what is unseen on a physical exam. Radiographs are used everyday to diagnose bone fractures, arthritis, heart problems, and foreign objects in the gastrointestinal tract. 


Ultrasonography is a non-invasive Diagnostic Imaging Technique that allows the practitioner to visualize internal organs for possible pathology or abnormalities. This method is an essential technological tool for diagnostic success.

K-Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is proven to bio-stimulate tissue repair and growth. Unlike a surgical / cutting laser, this modality heals and provide these other positive effects on the body:

  • Improves and promotes healing
  • Reduces pain and spasm
  • Increases joint flexibility
  • Reduces symptoms of osteoarthritis
  • Detoxifies and eliminates trigger points
  • Advanced pain relief

  • “I’ve been taking my birds and dogs to Dr. Taylor and her staff for a very long time – one of my cockatiels is 22 years old (they're only supposed to reach 12!) In healthy times, sickness and emergencies, the folks at Bridges have been there for me with compassion and excellent care. They are such a part of the community and are always active in animal rescue events, rabies clinics, and any opportunity to support animal welfare. These folks care like family.”

  • “I have a very high regard for Dr. Taylor and her staff. They take great care of my pets, and during a recent emergency, I was really impressed by Dr. Taylor’s tenacious, detail-oriented diagnostics and resulting treatment recommendations. Bridges is also the vet for Siamese Cat Rescue efforts in this area. I love the staff. They are so willing to work with us and they really support our efforts in caring for these amazing creatures and helping find them safe and loving homes.”

  • “Dr. Roxanne Taylor is a great, caring vet. I breed, raise and show champion Doberman Pinschers and Dr. Taylor has been my vet for 18 years. She is beyond caring; I can site thousands of incidents. She is very thorough; her motto is ‘let’s find out, let’s be sure.’ Her staff, oh my gosh, they know who you are when you call, are so personable and do everything to make the animals feel at home. They are accessible, honest and truly love what they do. I couldn’t imagine finding better veterinary care in our area.”

  • “Oh I love Roxanne! The best way I can describe my experience with her is total trust. She is honest, deeply compassionate and not afraid to refer you to a specialist when it’s in the best interest of the animal. She snatched one of my Yorkies from the grave twice within his first two years of life! And when my sister and I lost our Poodles, she was so comforting. Our dogs just wag their tails like crazy when they see her; that’s a testimonial in itself!”

  • “I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Taylor and her practice. They go to extraordinary lengths to help animals . . . and their people! Before I moved here from New Jersey, I brought my dog to Dr. Taylor whenever I visited my daughter. It was a long way to travel to see the vet, but she helped me bring an abused very scared animal to health. She is very upfront and helps me make good decisions for my pets with complete information. I’m very pleased with the service I’ve gotten at Bridges Animal Hospital.”

  • “Dr. Taylor has been treating our dogs for more than 20 years. We breed show dogs and therapy dogs and are very particular. The folks at Bridges are gentle, kind and have never let us down. We have complete confidence in them and wouldn’t go anyplace else. We are really lucky to get to work with them.”
