What we do

Cedar Referrals is proud to introduce our specialist-led 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 offers a comprehensive outpatient service for diagnostic investigations, providing a written report with results and recommendations directly to the referring veterinary surgeon to allow them to discuss the clinical management of the patient directly with their client. 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 cardiology team cares for dogs and cats with all types of heart conditions, including congenital and acquired diseases as well as rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias or dysrhythmias). In most cases, these conditions can be diagnosed by echocardiography and/or electrocardiography (ECG). We also offer an ambulatory ECG (Holter) monitoring and analysis service with 24h, /48h, /72 hour monitoring capability, complimented by the provision of management recommendations on a case-by-case basis. Heart conditions are treated either by medication or by performing “key-hole” interventional procedures called catheter interventions.

Additionally, our Cardiology team runs a dedicated outpatient service for the investigation of heart murmurs in asymptomatic puppies and kittens up to six months of age, comprising full echocardiographic assessment for only £195.

At Cedar Referrals, our Veterinary Cardiology Service provides investigation of all types of congenital and acquired canine and feline heart diseases. These include, but are not limited to:
