Cardiology for dogs and cats in Ayrshire 

Heart disease is, sadly, common in pets. Sometimes a heart murmur may cause no problem, but in many cases breathlessness, coughing or fainting may occur. Diagnosing the cause of a murmur, irregular heart rhythm or chronic cough means that the best treatment can be given to your pet. In many cases we can give our four-legged friends a new lease of life.

Katy Garven BVMS, Cert VC, MRCVS consults at all three of our branches and performs cardiology diagnostics at Kilmarnock.

She can also give advice on inherited heart disease in breeding animals. Please check current requirements for heart screening with your breed club, or call us on 01563 522701 if you are unsure.

All clients are very welcome to use our cardiology service, but if your pet is not registered with MBM your vet needs to make a referral. After your consultation a full report will be sent promptly back to your usual practice to keep your vet fully informed.
