Cardiology is the study of the heart, and it involves both the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions. We have state of the art diagnostic tools at Memorial-610 Hospital for Animals to help diagnose and treat a wide range of heart diseases. Auscultation using a stethoscope and radiographs to image the cardiac structures are the traditional methods of evaluating cardiac diseases. More advanced diagnostics and treatments are available with new technology. We use a Vetronics® computerized ECG/Blood Pressure machine to detect heart arrhythmias and hypertension, and an Aloka® Alpha-6 Ultrasound machine for Echocardiography. These four tools, a blend of old and new technology, make diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions at Memorial-610 Hospital for Animals exemplary. Referral to a Board Certified Veterinary Cardiologist, when indicated, allows for complete cardiac care for our patients.
