Cardiology (Heart)

Although heart problems are found more often in older pets, these conditions can affect pets at any age. Heart disease is usually a life-threatening condition, but early diagnosis and appropriate therapy can extend your pet’s life. If caught soon enough, some forms of heart disease can be cured.

Heart disease can lead to congestive heart failure (CHF), which occurs when the heart can no longer pump blood effectively. If an animal is suffering from CHF, fluid usually accumulates in and around the lungs and sometimes in the abdomen. Congenital heart disease (animals born with a heart problem), valvular heart disease (abnormalities of the heart valves), arrhythmias (rhythm disturbances), and heartworm disease can all lead to CHF.

Call us if your pet starts breathing rapidly or coughing, loses his or her appetite, tires easily, seems weak, or has trouble exercising. We can discover many heart problems during a physical exam. Additional tests, such as an electrocardiogram (ECG), radiographs (x-rays), and ultrasounds, are usually needed to accurately identify the cause of the heart disease or failure.

The following steps must be taken to keep you and our Team safe from exposure.

Call our hospital and make an appointment.

When you arrive, go to our back parking lot. Please park facing our back door and call our phone number 610-525-1211. Please remain in your car with your Pet.

We ask that you please wear a mask. 

 Please remain in your car in our parking lot during the exam so the doctor can call and speak with you with any questions. Payment will be done over the phone.

Stay safe and well

Due to COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made a few changes to our every day producers to care for your pets.

Our hours have changed and we request that if you are unable to keep your appointment that you call us with a 24 hour notice. So that we can help other pets in need and give them that appointment.
