We have the expertise to perform cardiology services to diagnose and treat heart conditions in dogs and cats. Our doctors have the ability to diagnose manage heart conditions such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and valvular disorders in pets.
Pets with heart disease may have symptoms that seem unrelated to heart conditions including lack of appetite, lethargy, or fainting spells. Some pets may not show any visible signs until discovered during a routine examination. Other signs of cardiovascular problems include:
To obtain a diagnosis of your pet’s condition, we utilize echocardiograms, medical history, in-hospital exams and may perform diagnostic testing such as blood work evaluation and/or chest x-rays. These tools can help us confirm the presence of an underlying heart condition and assess the severity of your pet’s heart condition. Depending on your pet's health needs, we have various treatment options available such as prescription medications, cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, pacemaker implantation, and cardiac surgery.
