About Cardiology Consultations
As a specialty consultation service, our cardiologists are available and committed to working with veterinarians in an integrated team approach to better diagnose and treat patients with heart disease. Our highly trained, board certified cardiologists are able to interpret advanced diagnostic images that are used to identify the heart problem suspected in patients. The consultation and evaluation of the images are then used to create a treatment plan specifically for the patient's condition. Depending on the problems identified through diagnostic testing, treatment recommendations may be medical (e.g. starting or adding additional oral medications) or may require an interventional procedure (e.g. pacemaker implantation).
