Cardiology

Why does my animal need to see a Board-certified Veterinary Cardiologist?

Commonly called Cardiologists, these Specialists focus on diagnosing and treating disease of the heart and lungs, which include:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Damage to the heart muscle or valves
  • Coughing and other breathing problems
  • Congenital (present at birth) defects
  • Cardiac arrhythmias (problems with the rate and/or rhythm of your animal's heart)

What should I expect during the visit with a Board-certified Veterinary Cardiologist?

The Cardiologist will perform a complete and thorough physical examination on your animal, and based on these initial findings, additional tests will be discussed. Depending on your animal's condition, diagnostic testing or treatments may include:


  • Echocardiography - non-invasive ultrasound imaging of the heart
  • Electrocardiography (ECGs) - electrical reading of the heart's rhythm
  • 24 hour Holter Monitors - 24 hour ECG recording
  • Heart Registry Certification for breeding programs
  • Chest Radiography (x-rays)
