Heart Testing

SLR performs heart testing on behalf of the Veterinary Cardiovascular Society (VCS) on dogs and cats at the request of owners, breeders and breed societies in order to identify potential abnormalities in animals and to offer advice to the owner, breeder and owner’s veterinary surgeon if an abnormality is found.

A number of breeds have an inherited predisposition to certain heart conditions. Sue is on the VCS approved lists for heart testing by auscultation and also Doppler echocardiography.
