Our Work With Primary Care Vets and Other Specialists
Our cardiology experts provide essential care for your pet; however, most pet parents should focus on developing a good relationship with a primary care veterinarian who provides routine care for their pets.
Primary care veterinarians can diagnose cardiac conditions and refer you to an appropriate specialist for the required therapy or treatment to improve your pet’s quality of life.
Together, our team and your pet’s primary care veterinarian can determine if your pet requires attention in a hospital setting or on an outpatient basis.
