Cardiology

Veterinary cardiorespiratory medicine helps to find the solution to problems such as heart murmurs, persistent coughing, breathing difficulties, episodes of collapse (fainting), exercise intolerance and heart rhythm abnormalities (arrhythmias).

After an initial consultation with us your pet may be admitted for further investigations by a specialist in ardiorespiratory medicine. Investigations can include cardiac ultrasound, thoracic radiographs, electrocardiography, blood pressure measurement, bronchoscopy, or 24 hour Holter monitor recording.

Depending on the problem your pet may return home the same or the following day but some pets may need additional hospitalisation depending on their condition.

If you have an appointment to see the cardiologist we will carefully explain and discuss the options available to you to best solve your pet’s cardiorespiratory problems.
