  7. Endoscopy

    Chronic vomiting, diarrhea or intermittent gastrointestinal signs may necessitate endoscopy, the best tool for assessing GI disease.

    Many cardiac conditions go undiagnosed until your annual physical exam. If your pet is symptomatic for heart disease, treatment may be necessary.

    We provide full cardiac workups, including blood profile, radiography (x-ray) and echocardiography (cardiac ultrasound) for preliminary investigation. Many heart conditions can be treated medically.

    In complex cases where further assessment or intervention is needed, referral to a cardiologist may be necessary.

    As the eye is a very complex organ, in rare cases a referral to an ophthalmologist may me necessary.
