Who We Are / What We Do

CVCA's team of board-certified veterinary cardiologists throughout the USA treats more canine and feline patients with heart disease than any other pet cardiologist practice worldwide. In fact, we see over 24,000 veterinary heart care patients per year. The experience of our veterinary cardiology specialists and our top-of-the-line small animal cardiology equipment ensure accurate diagnosis and the best cardiac care for pets.

Your pet's initial consultation with a veterinary cardiologist includes a blood pressure screening, echocardiogram performed by a board-certified cardiologist, and unlimited time for questions and discussion. We encourage all pet owners to follow-up with their primary care veterinarian after your initial consultation. This full and accurate cardiac workup offers your pet the best chance at a healthy life and minimizes ongoing and unexpected veterinary costs.

We Are Board-Certified Vet Heart Specialists

Seeing a board-certified veterinary cardiologist when your dog or cat has suspected heart health issues ensures the right diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Our highly trained animal cardiologists at CVCA perform a complete cardiac physical with a comprehensive review and interpretation of your pet's medical history, including radiographs and lab work.

We Provide Advanced Imagery & Diagnostics

During your appointment with our board-certified veterinary cardiologist, owners will accompany their pet for an echocardiogram so the cardiac veterinarian can provide an immediate and accurate diagnosis. Owner participation in diagnostic imaging also helps our board-certified veterinary heart specialists ensure accuracy in imaging and measurements and offers ample time and opportunity to discuss treatment options for your pet.

What Our Clients Are Saying
"This service is nothing short of amazing. I now know the exact medications and doses my Rosie needs to extend her life and preserve the quality of her life. I watched her echocardiogram which was seriously cool! Dr. Tim Cain fully explained Rosie's issues including the way a dog's heart works, what to expect, what to watch for but more importantly he gave me a lot of hope. It was unknown how far her heart disease had progressed but now we know and she can be treated accordingly. Thank you CVCA!"

"My three year old terrier, Tater Tot was diagnosed with PDA at this location. After being misinformed about her underlying condition at another facility, Dr. Borderline was able to diagnose, perform surgery, and ultimately treat my pup. She has an amazing bedside manner and allows the owner to be present during echocardiograms, which is hard to find anywhere else. Excellent people and care!"
