What is a veterinary cardiologist?

In addition to completing undergraduate training and four years of veterinary school, Board-certified Veterinary Specialists have completed an internship and residency in their specialized field and must pass rigorous examinations to achieve certification from ACVIM. ACVIM specialists bring a greater understanding in the area of internal medicine, cardiology, oncology or neurology. Cardiologists focus on diagnosing and treating diseases of the heart and lungs.

You are welcome to be present for the evaluation, but advanced scheduling is required to make this happen. This means you will have a known appointment time and Dr. Maran will personally walk you through the exam, findings, and treatment plan.

Your trusted veterinary office can provide an appropriate estimate based on the necessary diagnostics and appointment type. Please contact your trusted veterinary office for more details and their expected diagnostic plan.
