Cardiology refers to the study of the cardiac system, the heart and its vessels such as arteries and veins. The heart is the most important organ in your pet’s system. It pumps blood to the other vital organs and to the entire body. At Caradoc Animal Clinic, a cardiovascular examination is included in every visit. Our veterinarians will be listening to your pet’s heart, checking their blood pressure and other diagnostic tests. Any abnormalities are closely monitored throughout your pet’s life. Regular wellness exams are vital to monitoring and catching early signs of potential cardiovascular disease in order to prevent or minimize harmful effects.
