Animals’ heart disease is also treated by surgery these days.
Especially for mitral regurgitation, the best example of heart disease in dogs, it has become common that cardiology care is not necessary anymore by selecting surgical treatment. We want to offer pet owners optimal treatment, taking into consideration that cardiology care is still one of the options for animals. Please do not hesitate to consult us about heart disease.
