Echocardiogram Testing In Kansas City
When it comes to your pet’s health, you will do anything to ensure they live a healthy, happy, active life. But like humans, pets experience common heart conditions such as heart disease, that can be treated when detected early on.
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
