Puppy Heart Murmur Clinic

New puppy heart murmur clinic now taking bookings.

If you find a heart murmur during a routine puppy check you might feel it appropriate to refer your patient to our Cardiology service for specialist assessment. This can give the owners peace of mind that there isn't a longer term problem.

The cost of the clinic is £200 plus VAT and the assessment and scan will be undertaken by a board certified Cardiologist.
