Heart problems can present serious and life-threatening concerns. Primary care veterinarians frequently detect heart disease and complications at your pet’s routine exam when they observe abnormal heart sounds, rates, or irregular heart rhythms. When symptoms indicate that a heart complication may be affecting your pet’s health, your veterinarian may recommend that your pet see a specialist to diagnose or help manage the condition.
The cardiac diagnoses and procedures we treat and manage include:
- Congestive heart failure
- Heart murmur
- Pulmonary hypertension
- Degenerative Valve Disease
- Congenital Heart Disease
The board-certified veterinary cardiologist at Rossmoyne Animal Emergency Trauma Center uses diagnostic equipment to identify the underlying causes of your pet’s heart condition and to provide the best possible recommendations for treatment. If a heart condition is uncovered, treatment options could include medication, surgery, or a combination of both.
