Cardiology & Internal Medicine Consultations
 

From the routine screening of animals scheduled for anesthesia to managing the most difficult of congestive heart failure cases, our team of cardiology specialists are ready to provide you with timely and practical case consultations.

Report Types

Every report is detailed and customized to assist you in patient care and follow-up. For routine, STAT and Code Red consultations, an ECG and case assessment is provided as well as six categories of recommendations. 

Follow-up of cardiac cases is facilitated by the Institute of Veterinary Specialists’ recheck and repeat policy. All routine repeat electrocardiograms within 24 hours of the initial consult are free of charge and all routine recheck electrocardiograms within one month of the initial consult are 50% discounted.

ECG Devices

Any ECG transmitter may be used to transmit electrocardiograms to the Institute of Veterinary Specialists. If your hospital already owns a transmitter, you do not need to purchase any additional equipment. If you need a transmitter, we have a wireless digital ECG device as well as a portable 2-clip unit available for purchase.

Electrocardiograms may also be sent to the Institute of Veterinary Specialists by fax. Forms can be filled out and submitted through our website or faxed in.

Holter and CER Monitors

Holter and cardiac event monitoring is a non-invasive yet effective way of gaining diagnostic information about the electrocardiographic status of humans and animals.

The Holter is clinically used to:

  • Screen asymptomatic dogs for arrhythmias suggestive of occult cardiomyopathy
  • Document transient arrhythmias not often detected on routine electrocardiograms
  • Determine the severity of known arrhythmias within a 24-hour period
  • Diagnose potential causes for frequent syncopal episodes
Neurology Consultations
 

Our Board-Certified Neurologist can help you navigate your most extensive neurologic cases through his experience in image interpretation. MRI, CT and X-ray images can be submitted for review along with any short video clips of a patient’s gait or demeanor. Direct Dicom transfers can be setup or images can be emailed to us at images@vetheart.com.

The Institute of Veterinary Specialists will not charge you any extra fees—there are no monthly fees,
annual fees or minimums.

You are charged only for services provided.
