At VCA we offer state-of-the art options for the treatment of some forms of heart disease. We regularly perform non-invasive, fluoroscopically-guided procedures to fix birth defects of the heart including patent ductus arteriosus, pulmonic stenosis, tricuspid stenosis and cor triatriatum dexter.

Non-invasive procedures are performed via the jugular vein, femoral vein or femoral artery, allowing patients to experience only mild discomfort and they are always enthusiastic about being able to go home the next day. Most patients will go on to enjoy a normal length and quality of life. Pacemakers are also a routine procedure at VCA for dogs that are fainting due to slow heart rates.
