An echocardiogram examines the structure and function of your animal's heart. This is a more precise manner to detect underlying cardiac disease. The cardiac disease your breed is prone to determines whether or not your animal should be screened once in their life time or annually. The test takes approximately 30 minutes; 10-15 minutes to collect the images and another 10 minutes for our cardiologist to measure and write the report. You will receive a copy of the report.
