Dr. Lauren Wiley says that she was born wanting to be a veterinarian but confirmed that decision at the age of 11 when she witnessed her miniature horse’s C-section. Her fascination for cardiology came when her first Portuguese water dog had a litter of puppies, five of whom didn’t survive because of a cardiomyopathy. She’s a huge fan of pacemakers, especially with paroxysmal complete atrioventricular blocks in cats, because they provide one of the few cardiac cures. Additionally, Dr. Wiley finds it gratifying to treat all forms of cardiomyopathies and to help guide pet owners through the stress of treating congestive heart failure. Two of her most recent research projects include a pathology study on the anatomy of the feline tricuspid valve and the use of isosorbide for the treatment of congestive heart failure.
