Our veterinarians have extensive experience in diagnosing diseases affecting an animal's heart and lungs. We have experience in treating acquired and congenital heart disease as well as pericardial disease.
Congenital refers to developmental changes in the heart that are typically present in patients since birth. The severity of these diseases are evaluated using echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, and angiography. Several diseases, such as pulmonic stenosis and patent ductus arteriosus, may be cured or have their severity greatly reduced, with surgery.
Pericardial refers to changes in the sac, or pericardium, that surrounds the heart. The most common type is the formation of fluid in the pericardium. We are unique in our ability to perform many procedures using both non-invasive and invasive techniques, which helps patients avoid large incisions and long recovery times.

Cardiac Insufficiency and Failure
