Cardiac Workup Monitoring

Cardiac cases are very common nowadays in veterinary medicine due to the improvement in diagnosis. There are veterinary cardiologists like in human medicine, so the cardiac patients have similar needs.

The most common signs of heart diseases are coughing, exercise intolerance (tired after walk or running), heavy breathing and panting excessively (especially at night). Sometimes the pet will pass out in severe cases.

Almost the same symptoms can be confused with lower pulmonary diseases, so it’s very important to differentiate between the heart disease cases and the lung disease cases.

Diagnostics can include:

Blood work, blood pressure, radiographs (x-rays), and ECG (electrocardiogram) and echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) to measure the heart size, heart chamber, inside valves and the great blood vessels.

Ninety percent of the heart cases can be managed by medication and a recheck is recommended every four to six months. The success of the treatment depends on the commitment to administer the medication and early detection.

**If you think your dog has any of these symptoms please schedule your appointment as early as possible. Please prepare for a lengthy visit, as these diagnostics take time to perform.

Dr. Hussein is the best. He always goes over and above to give my pets the best care and always takes the time to speak with me and reassure me that my dogs will be okay. I have had dogs as pets my entire life and have experienced many different veterinarians; however, Dr Husseins work ethic is top notch. You can feel the love he has for every animal he comes in contact with and to speak on behalf of my dogs, he always makes their visit as positive and comfortable as possible. He also has a great staff that compliment his practice as well. He is definitely the best vet in town and he always takes such good care of my dogs as if they were his own. Amy Baird
