Ever since that very first puppy or kitten check-up, your family veterinarian has been monitoring your pet’s heart. So if a concerning change should arise, your family veterinarian can monitor this and help you decide how to proceed—even advising you on whether a referral to a specialist is needed.

Cardiology Services

Heart problems are common in animals, and can range from “let’s keep an eye on this” to “we need to take action.” The most successful way to treat pet heart disease is checking out the condition early on and working with your family veterinarian and cardiologist for a complete diagnosis and plan of care.
