What is a Veterinary Cardiologist?

Veterinary cardiologists are veterinarians who focus solely on diagnosing and treating diseases of the heart or lungs and respiratory system. A veterinary cardiologist is responsible for providing diagnosis and therapeutic options for medical conditions of the heart. This includes arrhythmias, heart murmurs, hypertension, heart failure, and congenital heart diseases. A veterinary cardiologist uses advanced ultrasound to diagnose heart problems in pets.

Why Do You Need a Pet cardiologist?

A veterinary cardiologist should be sought when a pet is referred by a primary care veterinarian due to findings on their examination that show heart disease. Your pet may have developed a cough, have trouble breathing, show weakness or exercise intolerance, or possibly faint. These can all be signs of heart disease and a reason to visit a veterinary cardiologist.


Our cardiology services include:

  • Cardiac Diagnostic Testing
  • Digital radiography
  • Echocardiography
  • Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG)
  • Holter Monitoring and telemetry
