Cardio Pet

While more common in older cats and dogs, heart problems can also occur in puppies and kittens. The good news is that, with early detection, heart problems in both young and old dogs and cats can be treated and controlled, thereby enabling them to live longer and lead more normal lives. Come in for a checkup today so that we have a better opportunity to catch symptoms early, so your pet can continue to live a normal life if heart problems should occur.


A radiograph (X-ray) is a type of photograph that looks inside the body and reveals information that may not be discernible from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate your pet’s internal organs like the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as bones. When it comes to accurately diagnose your pet, radiology can be an extremely valuable tool in our diagnostic arsenal.

Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique similar to radiography (X-rays) and is often used in conjunction with radiography and other diagnostics. It allows us to visualize certain organs very thoroughly, including the heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, spleen, and intestines. It can also be useful to detect and monitor pregnancy.

We work closely with specialists – who we refer to when the situation is needed.
