Locust Valley Veterinary Clinic provides veterinary cardiology services for the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions and cardiac issues. Our veterinarians have the ability to manage or treat conditions including:
- Congestive heart failure
- Dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
- Valvular disorders
Signs of a Cardiovascular Condition
Pets with heart disease may have symptoms that appear unrelated to heart conditions, such as lack of appetite, lethargy, or fainting spells. They may not show any signs or unusual behavior until his or her routine examination.
Additional signs of cardiovascular conditions in dogs and cats include:
- Exercise intolerance
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Rapid breathing at rest
- Elevated heart rate
In addition to examining your pet’s full medical history, diagnostic tests such as blood work, chest x-rays, and an echocardiogram can be performed. These diagnostic tools help determine if your pet has any underlying heart problem and, if so, assess the severity of the condition. Depending on the results, we have a number of treatment options available, including prescription medications, cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, pacemaker implantation, and cardiac surgery.
