Southwest Florida Veterinary Specialists has been providing compassionate, comprehensive, state of the art cardiac care to the pets of Southwest Florida since 2003! Our cardiologists are all diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in the specialty of Cardiology.
Our cardiac patients are typically seen by appointment, however, all
emergency cardiac patients are seen immediately.
For best results, please bring all records, radiographs (x-rays), and any medications that your pet is taking.
Most types of heart disease in animals are treatable, with an early and accurate diagnosis. The common diseases, such as mitral valve disease, dilated cardiomyopathy, and pulmonary hypertension, are typically treated with medications. Some cardiac disease may require surgery for treatment or correction. At Southwest Florida Veterinary Specialists & 24-Hour Emergency Hospital, we offer interventional, minimally invasive surgery for pets with certain heart diseases. Minimally invasive surgery means less hospital time and a faster recovery for your pet.
