We are currently the only certified veterinary cardiologists in the province working in a referral centre (Centre Vétérinaire DMV). In the current context, we believe that a large proportion of Quebec's animal population does not have access to or cannot benefit from the services and expertise offered by a veterinary cardiologist.

It is with this premise that we decided to build a unique veterinary cardiology service for companion animals. Our main objective was to create a business whose mission is to offer certified veterinary cardiology and internal medicine specialist services to patients (companion animal) across the province. We believe we can fulfill our mission by offering mobile consultation and telemedicine services.

What is a "Board certified" veterinary cardiologist?

Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with diseases of the cardiovascular system. These include conditions such as congestive heart failure, arterial hypertension, cardiomyopathy (including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and dilated cardiomyopathy), valvular disease, congenital anomalies, and irregular heart beat. A veterinarian becomes Board Certified in veterinary cardiology by the American College of Internal Medicine after having completed several years of specialized training and successfully passed rigorous exams.
