Veterinary Cardiology in Orange
While your primary care veterinarian is able to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, there are some problems that need specialized diagnostics and care in order to get the best possible outcome for your cat or dog.
At Vet4HealthyPet Animal Hospital in Orange, Dr. Brewer our board-certified cardiologist is qualified to diagnose and treat cardiovascular (heart and vessels) disease in cats and dogs.
This includes disorders such as congestive heart failure, cardiac tumors, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, degenerative valve disease, systemic hypertension, arrhythmias, and congenital heart disease.
Board-Certified Veterinary Cardiologist
A veterinary cardiologist is a specialist with advanced training in the heart and circulatory systems of pets. Veterinarians that become Board-certified veterinary cardiologists, usually need to complete a one-year internship and comprehensive specialized training in an approved residency training program (typically 3-5 years).
Evaluating Heart Conditions
At your cat or dog's appointment, our cardiologist will conduct an in-depth physical assessment of your pet, and based on their initial findings, they may recommend additional tests.
They will also go over your pet’s medical history and current medications. Depending on your cat or dog's condition, their diagnostic testing could include:
- Radiographic Evaluation
- Blood Pressure Measurement
