What is a Cardiology Specialist?

Veterinary cardiology specialists have gone through several additional years of advanced training beyond the five years of veterinary college. Boarded cardiologists have completed an internship and detailed 3 year residency program, met the criteria established by their specialty college, and passed extensive examinations. They then become “Diplomates” of that college and can list their status after their name.

We work closely with your family veterinarian to help provide complete veterinary care for your pet. We may assist by providing a second opinion, performing complex diagnostics on a difficult case, or with comprehensive follow up care.

Communication with your family veterinarian is important to insure the best possible solution to your pet’s overall health. If you have concerns, talk to your family veterinarian to see if your pet is a candidate for cardiology specialty medicine.
