Meet Our Team
Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation and Consultation co-directors Doctors David Bruyette and Jennifer Garcia are American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine diplomates with over 40 years of clinical experience and expertise in all facets of internal medicine. We are uniquely qualified and prepared to assist veterinary practitioners with all patient cases, including those involving difficult, complex or multiple heath issues. For example, a cat with diabetes may also be suffering from renal failure or a dog in heart failure may also be diagnosed with cancer. In other situations, a younger animal may develop a problem that used to be considered untreatable, but is now manageable and perhaps even curable. At VDIC our mission is to provide the expertise that will help you manage your difficult cases to the most optimum outcomes. Veterinary education is also an important focus for us at VDIC. Through our website's Continuing Ed, Literature Review, Media and Blog sections, we will strive to keep both the generalist and specialist updated on the latest developments in Endocrinology (in particular) and Internal Medicine (in general).
