If you experienced chest pain or another type of heart problem, you would likely need to visit a cardiologist.

The same is true for animals. While your pet may not be able to tell you if they are experiencing pain in their chest, shortness of breath, a rapid heartbeat, or any of the other signs commonly associated with heart problems, you will notice that something isn’t quite right and bring them to the vet. While many veterinarians would then refer your pet to a veterinary cardiologist for heart-related concerns, Parkview Pet Hospital provides a complete range of cardiology services in house.


If we suspect that your pet is experiencing any type of heart problem, we will perform advanced diagnostic testing to get a clear picture of what’s going on.
In addition to performing a comprehensive hands-on exam and checking our pet’s blood pressure and vital signs, we may conduct an EKG, echocardiogram, contrast imaging study, or another type of test.

Our highly trained team relies on their vast knowledge and advanced diagnostic equipment to quickly and accurately diagnose a wide range of heart-related issues, including:
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Enlarged heart
  • High blood pressures
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Irregular heartbeat
