Southwest Florida Veterinary Specialists has been providing compassionate, comprehensive, state of the art cardiac care to the pets of Southwest Florida since 2003! Our cardiologists are all diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in the specialty of Cardiology.
We see patients in 4 different locations throughout SW Florida. Bonita Springs is our main office, and we have satellite offices in Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and Sarasota/Bradenton. Cardiac patients are typically seen by appointment, however, all cardiac patients that are in an emergency situation will be seen immediately.
Studies have shown that pets with congestive heart failure live 75% longer when your primary care veterinarian collaborates with a board certified cardiologist.
Most types of heart disease in animals are treatable. An early, accurate diagnosis is important so that the best life saving treatment options can be instituted. The common diseases such as mitral valve disease, dilated cardiomyopathy, and pulmonary hypertension are typically treated with medications. Some cardiac disease may require surgery for treatment or correction. At SWFVS, we offer interventional, minimally invasive surgery for pets with certain heart diseases. Minimally invasive surgery means less time in the hospital and a faster recovery for your pet.
