Follow-up - Pittsburgh Veterinary Cardiology - Pittsburgh, PA
Due to the complexity of cardiac cases and potential progression of disease, re-evaluation will be an important part of your pet's ongoing care. We recommend that initial follow-ups be done directly with the cardiologist. When possible, patients are returned to their primary care veterinarian for long-term follow-up care. Referring veterinarians are welcome to consult with the cardiologist regarding follow-up care; however, concerns regarding prompt care and patient safety dictate that we cannot provide owners or referring veterinarians with treatment recommendations for patients that are not directly under our care or patients that have not been seen in over 6 months. If your veterinarian is not comfortable managing your pet's follow-up care, this should be performed through Pittsburgh Veterinary Cardiology. A small consultation fee will be charged for review of rDVM diagnostic testing such as ECGs and/or radiographs.
