Cardiology Service

The Cardiology Service provides a diagnostic work up, treatment and surgical service for animals with heart and chest conditions.

Our team is among the most experienced in the UK and our Specialist vets provide both immediate and long-term care.

We have advanced imaging facilities, which, along with our Specialists’ expertise, allows us to perform advanced cardiac diagnostic techniques including pacemaker implantation and other procedures involving Interventional Radiography.

We are one of the few centres in the UK to offer interventional radiology, a field of medicine which uses minimally invasive procedures, such as fluoroscopy and endoscopy, for diagnosis and treatment without the need for more invasive techniques. These techniques may provide faster recovery, shorter anaesthesia, reduced time in hospital and the ability to treat previously untreatable diseases.

Where colleagues in different services across the Hospital for Small Animals suspect cardiac disease, we offer immediate internal consultations. A dedicated Intensive Care Unit and a 24 hour service means that every case receives the best possible care.

We are happy to work with our referring vet colleagues via the reporting and advisory service, to check and offer our opinion on ECG or radiographs.
