Protect Your Pet’s Heart

When it comes to heart health, your pet’s needs are just like yours. Plenty of exercise and a healthy diet are keys to a long and enjoyable life. But normal aging and heart disease can still occur. And sometimes these conditions need further diagnostic treatment as well as emergency pet care. Pima Pet Clinic is Tucson’s solution when these veterinary cardiology issues arise.


Diagnosing Pet Heart Problems

Echocardiography services are available at Pima Pet Clinic on a referral and emergency basis. An echocardiogram is an ultrasound image showing the heart and surrounding structures. It’s an excellent diagnostic tool because it is noninvasive and typically requires no sedation.

Echocardiography can diagnose the following pet health issues:


Your Role in Your Pet’s Heart Care

We have excellent diagnostic tools at Pima Pet Clinic, but the best diagnostic tools in the world are in your home: your family and you. No one is more familiar with your pet’s normal behavior than you and your family.

That’s why we encourage you to let us know about changes in play, endurance levels, coughing/wheezing, and appetite. Sometimes these are indicators of a heart condition or just a sign that you need to consider senior pet care for your dog or cat.

Referrals and Emergency Cardiology Care

Many pet-loving residents of Tucson are aware of Pima Pet Clinic for their pet emergency needs. We also are available upon referral from your regular vet. We offer second opinions and specialized diagnostic care not all veterinarians can provide. Pima Pet Clinic has developed an excellent reputation as your doctor’s doctor.
