Cardiac Teleconsulting Service for Veterinarians
Primary veterinarians are just as important as patients to the Cardiac Vet team. They are the first line of defense at suspecting a cardiac problem. The Cardiac Vet team would like to assist rDVMs in confirming their suspicion of heart disease by offering a Teleconsulting Service for interpretation of echocardiograms, ECGs, thoracic radiographs, Holters and event monitors. This service is not just limited to California but is available for all veterinarians and hospitals across the country and internationally.
- Diagnostics will be interpreted within 72 hours with a typed emailed report or within 48 hours if a STAT service is selected.
- Report turnaround time begins from the time that all documents, images and records are provided that are needed for interpretation of the case. If a case is submitted after hours, report turnaround time begins from the start of the next business day.
- For fastest response to a STAT request, please alert the Cardiac Vet team that a submission was made by texting 310-913-4122.
