Clinical signs such as difficulty breathing, resistance to exercise, fainting, and abdominal distension can point to heart disease. Dogs and cats acquire heart disorders with age or are born with them. Either way we want your pet to have the best outcome. Toward that goal, Cardiologist Dan Hall, VMD, DACVIM (Cardiology) will thoroughly discuss your pet’s history and problems. Following an examination, Dr. Hall and you will discuss the suspected problems and diagnostic tests that can best provide information regarding prognosis, treatment options, and monitoring recommendations.

Diagnostic and treatment options that help provide our patients maximum quality of life include:

  • Echocardiography (Heart Ultrasound)
  • Electrocardiography
  • In-house Telemetry (Continuous Monitoring the Heart’s
  • Electrical Activity while Hospitalized)
  • 24-hour Holter Monitoring (At Home Cardiac Electrical Recording)
  • Digital Radiography
  • Biochemical Testing
  • Medical Therapy
  • External Cardioversion
  • Surgical Intervention (in cooperation with our surgeons)
  • Minimally Invasive Interventions
