Cedar Referrals is proud to introduce our specialist Veterinary Cardiology Referral Service. Our experienced veterinary cardiologists are highly trained in dealing with challenging cardiac cases and offer the highest standard of care to both patients and owners alike. Our cardiology team will discuss the most appropriate diagnostic investigations and the most suitable interventions for the successful clinical management of each individual case, adopting a friendly and ethical approach. We believe that communication and collaboration are key in ensuring optimal care for our patients, which is why we work hand-in-hand with our referring veterinary surgeons to deliver continuity and quality of cardiac care.
Here at Cedar Referrals, our veterinary cardiology team cares for dogs and cats with all types of heart conditions, including congenital and acquired conditions as well as rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias or dysrhythmias). In most cases, these conditions can be diagnosed by echocardiography, electrocardiography (ECG) and radiographic evaluation of the cardio-respiratory system (thoracic radiographs). Heart conditions are treated either by medication or by performing “key-hole” interventional procedures called catheter interventions.
Our Cardiology Service is facilitated by an extensive range of advanced diagnostic equipment, including colour and spectral Doppler Echocardiography, digital thoracic radiography, 6- and 12-lead digital ECG recording, 24/48 hour ambulatory ECG (Holter) monitoring and High Definition Oscillometry Blood Pressure Monitoring.
We can also facilitate and perform interventional cardiology services (advanced specialist procedures) including pacemakers, implantable loop recorders, PDA occlusion and balloon valvuloplasty.
