AT THE HEART OF COMPREHENSIVE CARDIOVASCULAR CARE.

CARDIOLOGY AT NOR CAL VET

Sometimes simple things like shortness of breath or a cough can signal an underlying heart condition, so it’s important to have your pet seen by a veterinarian if their breathing, behavior, or heart rate just doesn’t seem normal, or if they experience weakness or fainting spells. Our cardiology specialists use the latest diagnostic techniques to examine your pet’s blood vessels, heart muscles and valves to pinpoint physical problems, while at the same time understanding that this is a difficult time for you, too. So, whether you see us for a heart defect your pet was born with, a valvular disorder, or an arrhythmia, we’ll walk you through the whole process to help you make the best decision for your pet. Your pet couldn’t be in more capable or caring hands.

A WEALTH OF TREATMENT THERAPIES

Many of the diagnostics, treatment options, and medications offered to human cardiac patients are also available to pets. From echocardiography to ultrasound-guided fluid cavity centesis; or from evaluation of patients after collapse to long-term medical management of congestive heart failure, our board-certified cardiologists work with you and your family veterinarian to manage your pet’s condition every step of the way.

HEART EXPERTS WITH HEART

Our Cardiology Team is committed to preventing, diagnosing, and treating cardiovascular diseases. They collaborate and consult with our specialists in surgery, oncology, radiology, internal medicine, and physical rehabilitation to treat a myriad of cardiac problems and conditions. We compassionately care for each pet’s heart using the most advanced diagnostic and treatment strategies available.
