Veterinary Cardiologists

Two veterinarians check a brown dog's heartbeat.If you have a heart problem, you might need to see a cardiologist. It’s the same in the animal world. If your pet has a heart issue, your local vet may refer you to a BluePearl veterinary cardiologist. They’re experts in caring for the heart health of our furry friends.

Our pet cardiologists know all about your pet’s circulatory system: the heart muscle, valves and blood vessels. They also know what to do when things go wrong.  

Conditions we treat:

  • Enlarged heart
  • Congestive heart failure (dogs & cats)

  • Congenital heart defects

  • High blood pressure

  • Irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)

  • Feline blood clot disorders

What to expect at a pet cardiologist visit

We want you to be prepared for your visit with a BluePearl pet cardiologist, so you have one less thing to worry about. But you should know our entire BluePearl veterinary team will be with you every step of the way.  

  • Bring your pet and your pet’s health records with you to BluePearl
  • A cardiologist will examine your pet
  • Our team may conduct advanced testing: echocardiogram, EKG, contrast imaging and others

 

  • We’ll create a treatment plan and may prescribe medication
  • We recommend that you follow the treatment plan and bring your pet back for regular checkups

While a pet’s heart problem is nothing to ignore, many conditions, with proper monitoring and treatment, will enable your pet to live a better and longer life.
