Heart Disease in Pets

Heart disease can have many symptoms in common with other illnesses and it is important to give your veterinarian the opportunity to evaluate your pet’s health. If your companion needs the expertise of a veterinary cardiologist your veterinarian will guide you through the process of finding the specialist that is right for you.

We understand that caring for your loved one with heart disease is a priority and can be very stressful. By using the most sophisticated, non-invasive diagnostics available, we are able to reach a diagnosis and treatment plan without causing significant stress to our patients.

Cardiology services are available 5 days a week at Alpenglow Veterinary Specialty + Emergency Center to treat heart disease in pets. Cardiology services are provided by Dr. Karen Sanderson, DACVIM (Cardiology) and the board-certified cardiologists of Rocky Mountain Veterinary Cardiology (RMVC).
