Cardiology: For helping pets live better and longer lives
If your veterinarian suspects a heart problem, he or she will refer you to Atlantic Coast Veterinary Specialists (ACVS) for further diagnostic tests and treatment. Dr. George Kramer, chief of staff at ACVS, is a board certified cardiologist and specializes in diseases affecting your pet’s heart. The cardiology team at ACVS has extensive experience treating congenital heart disease, acquired heart disease and pericardial disease.
Cardiac disease is diagnosed and evaluated using echocardiography, electrocardiography, Holter monitoring, blood pressure measurement, chest radiographs, cardiac catheterization and angiography. Most pets diagnosed with heart disease can lead long and happy lives when treated properly. Some pets can have their symptoms treated with simple medications, while other pets without symptoms may not need any medication. We also offer specialized cardiac surgery for certain conditions that do not respond well to medication. This includes transvenous pacemaker implantation, patent ductus arteriosus coil occlusion and balloon valvuloplasty.
