*** We are so excited to announce a concrete schedule for the arrival of MVMC’s new MRI unit! On April 15th our current MRI will be dismantled, and on the 16th the new unit will arrive. Our team will be working hard to transition swiftly and successfully over the weeks to come. Please call ahead if you are a veterinarian referring a patient to our neurology team or an owner bringing your own pet in for neurologic evaluation. We will be assessing the availability of advanced imaging in real time; on a case-by-case basis. ***

Veterinary Cardiology

Like humans, our pets can experience a wide variety of heart diseases. The cardiology department at MVMC is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of these cardiac conditions. We offer outpatient diagnostics such as echocardiography and ECG, as well as inpatient services for patients with congestive heart failure or arrhythmias. Our board-certified cardiologist will work closely with you and your primary care veterinarian to determine the best diagnostic and treatment plan for your pet.

A visit with the cardiologist may be prompted by the following findings:

  • Arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms)
  • Heart murmurs
  • Fainting or collapse
  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing
  • Acute onset of lameness in cats

Services we have available:

  • Echocardiography
  • Electrocardiography (ECG)
  • Holter monitors
  • Blood pressure measurement
  • Measurement of cardiac biomarkers
  • Inpatient management of heart failure and arrhythmias
