Veterinary Cardiology Services in Jacksonville
Protecting Your Pet’s Heart Health
San Juan Animal Hospital is proud to offer digital radiology. Digital radiology allows us to look inside the body and create images of the organs and limbs to diagnose illness and injury.
Heart disease is fairly common among dogs and cats, especially once they become senior pets. Certain breeds – such as Boxers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and Maine Coon cats – are also more prone to developing heart conditions. That’s why it’s so important to have regular pet wellness exams. The earlier your pet’s heart problem is diagnosed and treated, the better it will be for their overall health and well-being. Invest in cardiology services in Jacksonville for your pet. San Juan Animal Hospital is here to help.

How to Care for Your Pet’s Heart
Protecting your pet’s heart is important, and there are plenty of common-sense approaches to caring for your pet’s heart. Maintaining your pet at a healthy weight and encouraging plenty of physical exercise is a great start to keeping your pet’s heart healthy.
Likewise, regular dental care – both at home and through veterinary dental exams – is key to protecting your pet’s heart. In fact, it may surprise you to know that the number-one cause of heart disease in pets is poor dental health.
Harnessing the Power of Diagnostic Tools
One of the diagnostic tools San Juan Animal Hospital uses most is ultrasound, which allows us to visualize the internal structure of the body’s internal organs.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to offer a non-invasive, painless, and radiation-free method of imaging your pet’s thoracic and abdominal organs, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
