Veterinary Specialist Services is fortunate to have a dedicated and highly experienced cardiology team in our practice. They are a significant component of the team approach to patient management by giving expert assessment of dogs and cats with heart problems.
The cardiology team use the most advanced diagnostic equipment, including echocardiography with new, high resolution ultrasound machines (Philips Epiq CVx), electrocardiography, radiography, 24-hour electrocardiographic monitoring (Holter monitoring), laboratory work, and angiocardiography.
Update as of 7 Apr 2020: Dr Fiona Meyers and Dr Chris Lam will transfer to the Carrara practice following a short break. This means that from after the Easter break (23 April 2020), Cardiology will be available at Carrara and Underwood, with the cardiology services working within VSS teams on site and their rotations. Dr Brad Gavaghan will continue to offer cardiology services through the Underwood practice. The cardiology team will also have a telemedicine consultation service available - please contact any of the VSS practices if you would like to arrange this for your patients.
