Our Cardiology Services
Although your family veterinarian can diagnose and treat many problems very well, there are some conditions that require specialized diagnostics and care in order to optimize the outcome for your pet.
At Veterinary Medical and Surgical Group (VMSG) in Ventura our board-certified veterinary cardiologist is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular (heart and vessels) disease in pets.
This includes such disorders as congestive heart failure, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, degenerative valve disease, systemic hypertension, arrhythmias, congenital heart disease, and cardiac tumors.
Board-Certified Veterinary Cardiologist
A veterinary cardiologist is a specialist that has advanced training in the heart and circulatory system. To become a board certified veterinary cardiologist a veterinarian usually completes a one year internship followed by extensive specialized training in an approved residency training program (usually 3-5 years).
Evaluation of Heart Conditions
At your appointment, the cardiologist will perform a complete and thorough physical examination of your pet, and based on these initial findings, additional tests will be discussed.
They will also review your animal’s health history and current medications. Depending on your pet's condition, diagnostic testing may include:
- Radiographic Evaluation
- Blood Pressure Measurement
