Resources for Pet Owners

When your pet’s health changes it’s best to consult your veterinarian.

Heart disease can have many symptoms in common with other illnesses and it is important to give your veterinarian the opportunity to evaluate your pet’s health. If your companion needs the expertise of a veterinary cardiologist, your veterinarian will guide you through the process of finding the specialist that is right for you. Let your vet know about Rocky Mountain Veterinary Cardiology’s expertise and unique on-site services.

What is a veterinary cardiologist?

A veterinary cardiologist is a specialist in evaluating and diagnosing heart problems in your pet. Just like cardiologists for people, veterinary cardiologists have received years of training in the structure and function of the heart.

What can our veterinary cardiologists do for your pet?

By using non-invasive tests to diagnose heart disease, RMVC will work with you and your veterinarian to diagnose and plan a tailored treatment strategy to ensure the best quality of life for your companion.

What kinds of tests does RMVC offer?

RMVC works with you and your veterinarian to combine a thorough history with the results from non-invasive testing, such as cardiac ultrasound, contrast studies, short and long term EKG, and blood pressure, to make an accurate diagnosis. For more information on the types of testing we do, please see Diagnostics. We understand that caring for your loved one is a priority and can be very stressful. By using the most sophisticated, non-invasive diagnostics available, we are able to reach a diagnosis and treatment plan without causing significant stress to our patients.
