The clinical cardiology program at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals provides the most current diagnostic and treatment options for small animal patients. Local, national, and international collaborations with researchers and clinicians at Cornell and at other leading institutions have improved patient care in the field of veterinary cardiology and continue to keep our service at the forefront of the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease in companion animals.
The Cardiology Service offers dedicated consultations and treatment in our state-of-the art facility. The most advanced diagnostics in veterinary medicine are provided, including echocardiography, electrocardiography, radiography, 24-hour electrocardiographic monitoring (Holter monitoring), laboratory work, and angiocardiography. In addition to the most current medical therapies, our service provides a number of interventional therapies including, but not limited to, pacemaker implantation, occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus, balloon valvuloplasty for pulmonic and subaortic stenosis, cardioversion of atrial fibrillation and radiofrequency catheter ablation of arrythmias.
In the day to day care of patients in our hospital, we are keenly aware of the owners' concern for their pet, and we give our full attention to each person and animal that we are fortunate enough to meet. Moreover, we respect the fact that our clients have often taken time from their lives to drive a long distance to give to their animals the best care and we will do everything we can to meet and exceed these expectations.
