Like humans, dogs and cats can be born with or acquire a variety of problems related to their heart. Veterinary Cardiologists diagnose and treat diseases of the cardiovascular system, which include the heart (valves, muscle, and electrical conduction system) and blood vessels . As a specialty referral service, the Cardiology Department at MLVS is committed to working with your veterinarian to communicate an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Our board- certified veterinary cardiologist is equipped with advanced diagnostic imaging techniques to identify the heart disease suspected in your pet. The results from these cardiovascular tests are used to create a treatment plan specifically tailored to your pet’s condition.

Techniques employed by the MLVS Cardiology Department include the following:

  • Echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart) with 2D imaging, color flow Doppler, and spectral Doppler
  • Digital radiography (X-rays)
  • Electrocardiography (ECG) – evaluation of the electrical activity of the heart
  • Holter ECG monitoring
  • Blood Pressure measurement

Common conditions diagnosed & treated by the MLVS Cardiology Department:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Chronic degenerative valvular disease
  • Cardiomyopathies (heart muscle diseases)
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Arrhythmias
  • Pulmonary hypertension
