cardiology

Maintaining your pet’s healthy heart is critical to the overall well-being of your animal. Rest assured that the expert veterinarians and staff at Potts Point Veterinary Hospital are skilled in animal cardiology and have the latest diagnostic equipment at their disposal. During your pet’s annual wellness care exam, our vets will examine your pet’s heart for any potential problems.

If you notice any of the following symptoms, please call us immediately for a consultation, as this could be a sign that your pet has a heart ailment:

  • Coughing
  • Lethargy
  • Breathlessness
  • Reduced exercise tolerance in dogs
  • Panting
  • Reduced appetite
  • Abdominal swelling

When you bring your pet to us, we give your animal a full examination to diagnose the problem. We use highly advanced diagnostic equipment, including the doppler blood pressure system, ultrasonography, ECG, and X-rays, to look at the size of the heart. We also run a full blood test to check for heart disease.

Should your pet have a heart murmur or signs of heart failure, we have the most innovative medications, just like those used in humans, at our disposal. The staff at Potts Point Veterinary Hospital may also recommend weight loss if your pet is overweight or suggest a specific diet based upon your animal’s condition. We counsel you about how to maintain your pet’s optimal weight for the best health advantages.
