According to the AVMA, there are 208 veterinarians who have earned board certification in the specialty of cardiology,* a sub-specialty of Internal Medicine. Dr. Small is one such veterinarian, and she has earned a special place in the hearts of many pet owners throughout the region.

As a cardiology specialist, Dr. Small treats animals with conditions affecting the heart, lungs and respiratory system. Sometimes a surgical solution is the best option, however the majority of cardiology patients can be treated on an outpatient basis with medical management of the disease. As always, a consultation with the specialist to learn about all of the treatment options available will give you the information you need to decide on the right course of action for you and your pet.

At The COVE, we offer:

  • Contrast echocardiography
  • Echocardiography with color flow Doppler
  • Holter and event monitoring
  • Invasive blood pressure monitoring
  • Thoracic radiography

The value of an accurate and timely diagnosis cannot be understated. This, along with our collaborative team efforts with your family veterinarian, allows us the opportunity to provide your pet with the best options for a prolonged quality of life.
