Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology TEAM

The Specialist-led Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology team at Southfields Veterinary Specialists are highly experienced in managing complex cardiac cases. We’re proud to be one of the few small animal referral centres in the UK able to perform interventional cardiology procedures. Our Cardiologists are supported by our 24-hour veterinary and nursing team. We also have dedicated cardiology nurses, specially trained in nursing cardiac patients, on hand to ensure all pets referred to us receive the very best individual care.
