Should the veterinarian detect an issue during an examination, we have ECG monitors available in-hospital to screen for abnormal electrical signals within the heart. Once diagnosed, we may refer your pet to a veterinary cardiologist for further diagnostics (such as a cardiac ultrasound) and/or treatment.
We also have blood pressure equipment in-hospital to aid in diagnosing hypertension. Just like in humans, high blood pressure can cause a myriad of issues, including kidney damage. We often ask for your assistance in creating a low-stress environment while we are taking readings; this helps ensure an accurate diagnosis.
