Partnering Veterinary Cardiology Specialists with Your Family Veterinarian in Southeastern Michigan
An animal’s body is an integrated organism, which means that diseases that affect the heart and the lungs can take on many forms. Each animal could present different signs of the disease, but they may include: weakness or exercise intolerance, shortness of breath, fast breathing at rest, collapse or fainting spells, or coughing.
Our veterinary cardiology specialists will ask for a detailed health history for your pet and combine this with a physical examination and diagnostic testing. Once the veterinary team makes a diagnosis of your pet’s illness, they will develop a detailed treatment plan catered to your animal’s specific needs.
The veterinary cardiology specialists at Oakland Veterinary Referral Services (OVRS) work closely with your family veterinarian to offer your pet the most comprehensive care imaginable. We work hard to provide an environment full of nurture and compassion with as little stress as possible to maintain the strong bond between you and your pet.
Initial consultations tend to take 1–2 hours. Be sure to bring your pet’s medical records, including any recent test results. After-hours appointments or emergency procedures are available on a case-by-case basis. Please refer to our cardiology brochure for more information.
