Occasionally, dogs and cats experience heart and lung related symptoms that require an expert familiar with these conditions.  Whether it is to evaluate a heart murmur, rhythm disturbance, or congenital cardiovascular defect, Dr. Carrie Ginieczki, board certified cardiologist, is available to provide our patients with a thorough cardiac evaluation.  An echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) and electrocardiogram (ECG) are non-painful tests routinely performed within our hospital.  The information these tests provide is important in determining the severity of the heart condition and formulating an effective treatment strategy.
