Why Has My Veterinarian Recommended My Pet See a Cardiologist?

Just like humans, animals can be born with or develop a number of conditions that affect the heart, lungs and circulatory system. Some of these disorders may be specific to certain breeds of cat or dog, while others may be due to aging. Some develop secondary to other diseases. When your veterinarian has identified a condition affecting your pet's heart, lungs or blood vessels he/she may feel it can best be addressed by the expertise of a cardiologist. The cardiologist will not replace your veterinarian but rather become a part of your pet's veterinary health care team.
