For Veterinarians

We are committed to providing the highest standards of medical and client care. We provide a prompt referral service for our colleagues in practice and a written report is sent to you by fax and email. Our service doesn't stop there: we also monitor the patient's progress in the weeks and months following referral, and will provide ongoing free advice to you for the life the animal.

From experience, cases are generally referred to us for three main reasons:

1. Diagnosis and treatment of non-specific symptoms:

Exercise intolerance or fatigue
Coughing in dogs
Breathlessness
Weakness

2. Diagnosis and treatment of specific symptoms:

Lung Disease
Coughing in cats
Respiratory noises from the throat
Discharges from the nose
Cyanosis
Wheezes & crackles
Obesity
Heart Disease
Murmur
Abnormal heart beats
Abdominal enlargement (fluid)
Pallor
Weak pulses
Fainting

3. To carry out specific procedures:

Pacemaker implantation
Interventional (keyhole) closure of PDA
Balloon dilation of pulmonic stenosis
Pericardial drainage (pericardiocentesis)
Pericardiectomy
Ambulatory ECG monitoring (Holter, loop event, Reveal)
Chest drainage

In addition, we offer an ECG & chest X-ray interpretation service; see case advise.
