When you get sick, you might be referred to a medical specialist, such as a cardiologist, to diagnose the problem. The same applies to pets. A pet cardiologist specializes in the heart and circulatory system of animals. The heart is one of the vital parts of the body because it provides oxygen and nutrients to organs and tissues. Because of this, problems with the pet cardiology problems need to be addressed and treated as quickly as possible. Here at Augusta Animal Clinic, we have state-of-the-art cardiology technology that helps find the underlying causes of pet illnesses.
Conditions Treated At Our Animal Hospital
Our veterinarian in Indianapolis can treat a variety of heart conditions, including:
Heart Failure: A pet cardiology doctor can treat animals who are suffering from heart failure. This condition is diagnosed when the heart is not able to pump enough blood to meet the demands of the body.
Blood Pressure: We also tend to pets who are suffering from blood pressure issues. An elevated blood pressure can negatively affect the circulatory system. Our veterinarian may order an echocardiogram to determine the cause of high blood pressure.
Conduction Issues: The heart functions as a pump that runs on an electrical circuit. If there are conduction issues in the heart, this can impact the ability of how the heart can pump. Conduction issues need to be addressed by a trained pet cardiologist. If not addressed right away, they can become life-threatening for your pet.
These are only a few of the many issues that our pet cardiologist can address and treat.
