At Family Pet Animal Hospital, our veterinarians can treat conditions such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and valvular disorders.
Pets with heart disease may have symptoms that seem unrelated to heart conditions including lack of appetite, lethargy, or fainting spells. Some pets may not show any visible signs until discovered during a routine examination. Other signs of cardiovascular problems include:
To obtain a diagnosis of your pet’s condition, we will examine his or her full medical history, and perform diagnostic testing such as blood work evaluation, chest x-rays, and electrocardiogram. These tools can help us confirm the presence of an underlying heart problem and assess the severity of the condition. Depending on your pet's condition, we have various treatment options available. If warranted, we will refer your pet to a specialist.
