About Cardiology

Cardiology is the branch of medicine that treats diseases of the cardiovascular system, which includes the heart and blood vessels. This encompasses such problems as congestive heart failure, hypertension, dilated and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and valvular disorders. Because the function of the heart and lungs are interrelated, veterinary cardiologists are also knowledgeable about lung disease as well as diseases of the chest cavity. A veterinary cardiologist is a licensed veterinarian who has obtained intensive additional training in veterinary cardiology.
