Pet Echocardiography

Images of a pet's functioning heart.

When pets experience heart issues, ultrasounds and x-rays are often used to make a definitive diagnosis. Echocardiography, put simply, refers to an ultrasound utilized for the heart.

Our veterinarians can make a referral to a local Cardiologist where they will perform a consult and echocardiogram.

CVCA is our primary cardiologist referral.  Check out their client handouts here

Echocardiograms can be used to detect the following conditions:

  • Birth defects
  • Heart disease
  • Cardiac tumors
  • Some heartworm infections

Like other ultrasounds, echocardiograms are painless, non-invasive, and usually don’t require any form of anesthesia. The most your furry friend will need to worry about is getting a patch of their hair shaved prior to the procedure.
