Sometimes, diseases can’t be diagnosed through a wellness exam alone. More advanced veterinary services need to be utilized in order to uncover the cause of a medical problem. Full Circle Animal Health Care understands this, and is proud to offer echocardiography as part of our diagnostic services.
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. Echocardiography uses sound waves that travel through the body and bounce off different layers of tissue, creating a moving image that can be viewed and assessed by us. This is a pain-free test that is used to determine the size and shape of your pet’s heart, the thickness of the heart walls and valves, the blood flow patterns through the heart, and it allows us to catch any abnormalities or damage. Knowing these things will allow us to properly diagnose any possible heart condition, and monitor your pet’s heart condition if he’s already been diagnosed with one.
If you believe your pet is could benefit from an echocardiogram, contact us to schedule an appointment.
