Echocardiography (heart ultrasound) and ECG for your pet

Echocardiography (heart ultrasound) and ECG (electrocardiogram) measurements are crucial medical tests that play a significant role in assessing the heart health of your beloved pets. Heart conditions can affect animals of any age, and at Torquay Animal House, we are equipped to utilize these advanced diagnostic tools to detect, diagnose, and prescribe treatments that can significantly improve your pet’s quality of life.

Recognising signs of heart conditions

It’s essential to be vigilant for signs that your pet may be suffering from a heart condition. Early indicators can include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Coughing
  • Fainting
  • Reduced ability to exercise
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss

At Torquay Animal House, we are committed to providing comprehensive care for your pet’s heart health. Our services include:

  • Echocardiography (heart ultrasound): This non-invasive procedure lets us visualise your pet’s heart in detail, assessing its structure and function. It’s invaluable for diagnosing conditions such as heart murmurs, valve disease, and cardiomyopathy.
  • ECG (electrocardiogram): An ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, helping us identify irregularities in heart rhythms and conduction abnormalities.

Early detection and treatment

Early detection of heart conditions is crucial for your pet’s well-being. Our skilled veterinarians can diagnose heart issues and prescribe appropriate treatments to manage and improve your pet’s quality of life.

In addition to advanced heart health diagnostics, Torquay Animal House offers a range of other services to meet your pet’s unique needs, including end-of-life care and de-sexing.
