Echocardiogram Services


Just like their human counterparts, dogs and cats can experience heart conditions that could reduce their quality of life if not properly treated. We offer Echocardiogram testing, a form of diagnostic testing that involves the use of ultrasound, which allows our veterinarians to explore the heart and associated blood vessels in order to effectively evaluate the heart’s anatomy and function.

Available at our RiversideLiberty, and Tiffany Springs locations.

Cardiac Ultrasound For Your Pet's Heart Health

At Eagle Animal Hospital and Pet Resort, we’re dedicated to providing our canine and feline patients with the very best care using the most innovative technologies available. An echocardiogram, often referred to simply as cardiac ultrasound, is a highly informative, non-invasive procedure that allows our veterinarians to evaluate the anatomy and function of your pet’s heart. The ultrasound waves allow your vet to see inside the heart, which is essential for accurately diagnosing heart conditions common in dogs and cats.

Heart Conditions in Pets

Cardiac ultrasound is essential for detecting such heart conditions as:

  • Valve abnormalities (Chronic Valvular Disease)

  • Heart dilation (Dilated Cardiomyopathy)

  • Heart muscle thickening (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy)

  • Congenital diseases (Patent Ductus Arteriosus)

  • Heart tumors

  • And most other heart problems

What is an Echocardiogram used for?

An echocardiogram is a powerful diagnostic tool used to assess your pet's heart to visualize:

  • The size and shape of your pet's heart

  • How effectively your pet's heart is pumping

  • Abnormalities in the heart, heart valves, and blood flow patterns

  • Abnormalities in the pericardium (sac surrounding their heart)

  • Any damage in various areas of the heart
