Sawgrass Veterinary Cardiology
ACCESS – Palm Beach County collaborates with Veterinary Cardiologists at Sawgrass Veterinary Cardiology.
When you’re not feeling well, your first call is likely to your primary care physician. If your case is particularly complex or requires a second opinion, your doctor may refer you to a cardiovascular services specialist.
Veterinary care works similarly. Bringing your pet to a primary care veterinarian will probably be your first point of contact. As with human healthcare, vets can now call upon a growing number of veterinary specialists. One type of specialist your pet may need to see is a cardiologist, a veterinarian with in-depth training in conditions related to your pet’s heart and circulatory system.
At Sawgrass Veterinary Cardiology, we provide many types of cardiovascular services which include complete cardiovascular physical examinations, echocardiograms, electrocardiography, and thoracic radiographs.
Sawgrass Veterinary Cardiology (SVC) is a specialty veterinary practice that focuses solely on diseases that affect the heart and lungs. Dr. Dewey Carpenter, (pictured above) is a board-certified veterinary cardiologist with over over 15 years of experience, and is an expert in the care of animals with heart disease.
Using specialized tests, he can diagnose specific heart problems, and able to prescribe the best treatment plan for your pet’s specific heart or lung disease.
Dr. Carpenter will always work with your primary care veterinarian to manage your pet’s heart health by coordinating optimal care and follow-up support. During every evaluation, Dr. Carpenter will review all previously performed test results, examine your pet, and decide if additional tests are necessary. Our specialty veterinary practice will perform an extensive record review to make sure no tests are repeated unnecessarily.
Rest assured that Sawgrass Veterinary Cardiology is able to perform specialized cardiovascular diagnostic tests, such as ECG and echocardiography, and offer treatment plans and options that may not otherwise be available to your primary care veterinarian.
