Cardiology is an area of veterinary medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases in animals. It deals with the study of the structure and function of the heart, as well as the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disorders in various animal species.
Diagnosis of heart disease requires a range of diagnostic tools and techniques to evaluate and diagnose heart conditions in animals. These may include physical examinations, electrocardiography (ECG), echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart), radiography (X-rays), blood tests, and in some instances, advanced imaging.
Once a diagnosis is made, treatment options may include medications, dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, or referral to specialists for surgical interventions, or specialised procedures like pacemaker implantation or interventional cardiology techniques.
Regular follow-up visits and monitoring are often necessary to assess the progress of the treatment and make any necessary adjustments. We work closely with you to provide comprehensive care to improve the quality of life for your pets.
