Cardiology Services

Many pets are referred to us by other primary care veterinarians for cardiac ultrasonography, but anyone may request an appointment for their animal to be examined. Common reasons for cardiac examination in animals include heart murmurs, irregular heartbeats, respiratory complaints and weakness or fainting. Because heart problems are common in older dogs and cats with other medical problems, we also perform many examinations on animals for other veterinarians as part of a pre-operative evaluation before further procedures are embarked on.

The majority of animals can be completely evaluated using non-invasive examination methods including radiology, cardiac ultrasonography and ECG’s.
