How can you tell if your pet’s heart is pumping properly?

Schedule your pet’s physical healthcare exam today, and let’s take a listen!

When you’re a pet owner, you know a lot about the health of your pet, just by using your senses. You can see your pet’s eyes when they’re goopy. You can smell their ear infection a mile away! You can feel the lumps and bumps on their skin. But what about their heart? How do you know if that organ is healthy?

Heart disease affects pets of all ages. For example, certain breeds of dogs and cats are at a higher risk of heart disease at a young age. Others develop heart conditions later in life when another illness crops up. Some pets develop heart disease at any age without noticeable signs. Yes, their heart may not be pumping right even though their tails are wagging and purring is at an all-time high!

If your pet’s heart is not checked regularly, your pet may be at risk for heart disease and, in some cases, a shortened lifespan. The good news is, if caught early, most issues can be treated or managed successfully for years. And if your pet already has a heart condition but is regularly monitored by our practice, often we can slow its progression.

Schedule your pet’s physical healthcare exam. During the exam, we’ll take a listen to make sure your pet’s heart sounds right. We’ll also perform a few other easy tests if needed to keep your pet’s ticker in the best shape possible!

When we think of love, we think of hearts. And we love your pet. It’s why we do what we do. Make an appointment today!

Please call ahead if you're seeking urgent care to ensure that we are not at capacity.


New Missed Appointment/Cancellation Policy

We know your time is valuable, and ours is too. Out of respect for our staff and our other clients, we require at least 48 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. If you do not confirm your appointment with at least 48 hours notice it will be cancelled. As appointments are in high demand, this allows us the necessary time to rebook the appointment time for someone on our waiting list.

After two missed appointments or cancellations with insufficient notice, we will require pre-payment for any future appointments. This amount will be non-refundable 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment.

Thank you in advance for your patience and kindness.

- Your dedicated team at Princess Animal Hospital
