M-mode echocardiography is what we use to take measurements of the heart walls including the thickness and the size of the chambers. It also allows us to determine how well the heart is functioning by calculating contractility and fractional shortening.
We believe the best way to maintaining the overall health of your pet is through preventative care such as routine checkups. These checkups give our veterinarians a baseline in your pets’ health so that we can detect any potentially harmful changes in their body chemistry. Theses changes are often imperceptible to the human eye, making regular checkups even more important.
To learn more about checkups or to schedule an exam for your pet, call us today at (952) 736-8278.
