Cardiology

Cardiothoracic Surgery

We are one of the few centres in the world to be able to offer heart surgery for dogs and cats.

Most cases we see are mitral valve repairs for the management of myxomatous (degenerative) mitral valve disease, but we also have experience in, and are able to offer surgery for a whole range of other conditions including, tricuspid valve dysplasia, congenital mitral valve abnormalities, pulmonic stenosis, double chambered right ventricle and other conditions.

Our team consists of Poppy Bristow, Anne Kurosawa, Craig Bailey, Hayley McDonald, Jackie Demetriou, Freddie Corletto. As well as numerous other Specialists and specialty nurses.

To discuss a case with us please email us on heart.team@dwr.co.uk or call us on 01638 572012 and ask to speak to Poppy or Craig.
