The practice of cardiology has evolved and been refined significantly over the past 10 years and has become one of the most exciting and challenging specialties in veterinary medicine. Having a cardiac specialist at Village Vet has allowed us to accurately diagnose heart problems earlier and treat animals more effectively. This is vital to help pets with heart problems lead a longer and more fulfilling life.
The arrival of echo cardiology – ultrasound of the heart – has resulted in a major advance in veterinary cardiology. With the use of a sophisticated ultrasound machine an expert cardiologist can analyse the heart in minute detail. The heart can be watched beating, each valve examined and the size of each heart chamber and wall measured. We can even measure the direction and speed of blood flow through the heart. Tremendous experience and knowledge is needed to do a thorough ultrasound examination of the heart – expertise you can be assured of finding at Village Vet.
