Advanced Heart Care for Dogs and Cats

Veterinary Cardiology & Advanced Heart Care for Dogs and Cats

San Diego Veterinary Cardiology works with companion animals with heart disease, helping to diagnose and treat a variety of heart conditions. We believe that through knowledge and communication, dogs and cats with heart disease can live joyful and dignified lives. Our philosophy emphasizes a true partnership between the pet's family, the pet's primary veterinarian, and the veterinary cardiologist.

San Diego's Largest Veterinary Cardiology Group

With three full-time cardiologists, our doctors work collaboratively to provide comprehensive care. Dr. Sharon Huston, Dr. Adonia Hsu, and Dr. Elizabeth Cole are board-certified veterinary cardiologists, specializing in the treatment of heart disease in dogs and cats.

Comprehensive Care & Availability

Our main office is centrally located in San Diego at the VCA Emergency Animal Hospital & Referral Center where our cardiologists are available 6 days per week. We are proud to serve our patients and clients with the support of the hospital's fully integrated ICU and ER. We are here for our patients 24/7.

In addition to our home base in San Diego, our team of cardiologists is pleased to offer consultations at three convenient satellite locations: Palm Desert, Murrieta, and Carlsbad, CA.
