Below are specialized Cardiac tests performed to obtain a comprehensive cardiac evaluation. This baseline information leads to a proper diagnosis and the best possible treatment options. Most of these diagnostics can be performed on an out-patient basis.

  •  

     Echocardiography

    Heart murmurs are often detected on routine physical examination with your family veterinarian, requiring the need for a complete cardiac evaluation with echocardiography. Echocardiography is the term used to describe an ultrasound of the heart. An ultrasound is obtained with harmless sound waves which are reflected back from the heart with the natural changes in tissue density giving a detailed account of the size, shape and function of all the different chambers and valves of the heart, as well as, direction, turbulence and velocity of blood flow. Increases in the velocity of blood flow often are what accounts for a heart murmur, which is turbulence of flow in the heart that can worsen over time. Proper techniques, technological capabilities and expertise are essential for the proper diagnosis and thereby the most beneficial treatment recommendations. An echocardiography does not require general anesthesia and often can be performed without sedatives. Your pet will lay on their side on a table while our veterinary technical staff will provide comfort to your pet. Echocardiography is a painless procedure, and most often results in a cardiac diagnosis with minimal stress to your pet.

  •  

     Electrocardiography

    Arrhythmias, or abnormal heart beats, are often detected on routine physical examination with your family veterinarian, requiring the need for complete cardiac evaluation with an electrocardiogram. An electrocardiogram (referred to as an EKG or ECG) is the representation of electrical conduction through the heart and is essential for the rhythm diagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Electrocardiography can be obtained in a variety of ways, most commonly during the out-patient examination.

  •  

     Radiographs

    Thoracic radiographs (also called x-rays) are used to evaluate a patient's lungs, also called the pulmonary system. Radiographs are used to diagnose left sided congestive heart failure, or fluid in the lungs called pulmonary edema. Thoracic radiographs can also be used to asses the size and shape of the heart.

  •  

     Blood Pressure

    Blood pressure is considered the fourth vital sign after temperature, pulse and respiration rate and has been referred to as the silent killer in human medicine. Blood pressure plays a pivotal role in how the heart is able to function. A physical examination is not complete without obtaining a blood pressure.

  •  

     Medical Therapy

    Most common therapeutic interventions are given on a long term outpatient basis. Potential medical options are recommended after appropriate diagnostics are performed and a diagnosis is obtained. A follow-up schedule for recheck appointments, both with your family veterinarian and our Cardiology Team will be discussed.
