Cardiology is one of the challenges of modern veterinary medicine, as cardiovascular diseases are common in pets, especially dogs. Clinical signs can often be vague – such as weakness, sporadic cough, or expressed with difficulty breathing and rapid fatigue, until ascites (accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity) or pulmonary edema occurs. Each of these symptoms can point us to a disease of the heart system.

Vetconsult Veterinary Clinic has the necessary equipment and specialists to perform diagnostic monitoring:

  • Pulse examination;
  • Respiratory rate;
  • Auscultation of the heart area;
  • Electrocardiogram;
  • Echocardiography;
  • X-ray diagnostics.

New generation medications that are prescribed aim to improve the general condition, lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients, tone the work of the heart muscle and improve its efficiency.

It is necessary to carry out control examinations in order to monitor the condition of the heart patient, to correct the doses of medications depending on the development of the disease.

Very often, medications are taken for life in order to maintain the patient’s comfortable condition and prolong their life.
