Veterinary Cardiology

If your primary care veterinarian has referred your pet to one of our cardiologists, please call us today at (941) 355-2884 to make an appointment.

What is Veterinary Cardiology?

Veterinary cardiologists are highly-trained, specialized veterinarians who are uniquely qualified to treat heart and circulation problems in animals. In addition to earning a doctorate degree in veterinary medicine, our board-certified veterinary cardiologists have all completed additional training programs and passed extensive examinations to gain the knowledge and skills to provide your pet with the cardiac care they need.  Your pet may need to see one of our veterinary cardiologists for any of the following issues:

  • Irregular heartbeats (i.e. arrhythmias)

  • Heart muscle disease (i.e. cardiomyopathy)

  • Congenital heart problems

  • Congestive heart failure

  • Degenerative heart diseases

  • Heart tumors

  • High blood pressure

At Animal ER of University Park, our advanced, fully equipped facilities and team of veterinary cardiologists are here to help the cats and dogs in Bradenton with any of the above concerns. Learn more about our expert veterinary cardiology team below.
