Our vet Nikos is studying for a certificate in cardiology – medicine and treatment of the heart. We also have a visiting heart specialist, Paul Smith , to help us with the most advanced cases.

A heart scan uses painless ultrasound technology (used to scan pregnant women) to build a moving, 3D picture of the heart and the blood flowing through the heart, to check for heart disease. This test can be used:

  • When a murmur is found at a general check-up in an otherwise healthy patient
  • Before anaesthesia
  • When there are signs of heart disease
    • Breathlessness
    • Weakness
    • Collapse
    • Weight loss
