An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of your pet's heart. Echocardiography is a standard non-invasive technique for assessing cardiac anatomy and function and diagnosing many types of heart problems. Because the heart is a complex organ, animals, like humans, can suffer from a wide variety of heart diseases. Using ultrasound, our highly trained veterinarians can watch your pet's heart in motion and measure each of its parts.
For moving organs like the heart, an echocardiogram is a valuable diagnostic tool. Ultrasound allows us to provide you with the most accurate diagnosis and best treatment options for your pet. It is one way we fulfill our promise to help your pet live the longest and healthiest life possible.
Echocardiography is a safe, painless procedure and generally takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
