May 2023 – ECVC Update on mobile cardiology services:

Since June 2019, I have offered mobile cardiology referral services to many clinics throughout Nova Scotia. During this time, I have thoroughly enjoyed working directly with veterinarians and support staff throughout the province. I’m so grateful for the support and referrals that have allowed East Coast Veterinary Cardiology to grow and am honoured to be your trusted colleague for cardiology care for our mutual patients.

The increased demand for referrals has made it challenging to provide services to all clinics within the province, and has limited my ability to travel to some areas outside of the HRM. With this in mind, and to make cardiac care more accessible to all Nova Scotian pet owners, I will be joining the Coastal Care Veterinary Emergency & Referral Hospital team later this year. This brand-new state-of-the-art multi-specialty and emergency veterinary hospital will feature over 15,000 square feet with nine exam rooms, a dedicated ICU, three operating suites, a brand-new CT, and all the equipment needed to provide high-level care for the pets of Nova Scotia. Coastal Care Veterinary Emergency & Referral Hospital is conveniently located in Bayer’s Lake in Halifax and will be open later this year.  

Transitioning to a fixed location will allow me to accept referrals from across Nova Scotia. It will allow me to accommodate and evaluate more patients, improving accessibility and reducing wait times for cardiac care for pets.  Coastal Care Veterinary Emergency and Referral Hospital’s state-of-the-art facility will also allow hospitalization and management of critical cardiac cases to provide cardiology services beyond what is presently available in Nova Scotia.

With this transition, you can expect the same level of care and service I have offered over the past four years. You will continue to receive a timely and comprehensive referral report for your patient following the consultation with your client. Additional information will be sent to you on how and when referrals will be scheduled in the coming months. In the meantime, mobile cardiology referrals with East Coast Veterinary Cardiology will continue as normal through until the end of August with further updates on scheduling being provided this summer. More information on Coastal Care Veterinary Emergency & Referral Hospital can be found on their website:

Mobile Cardiology Consultations

Mobile cardiology consultations are available for practices that are located within our mobile coverage region (effective January 1, 2023).  Beginning in 2023, the mobile coverage region is primarily limited to the HRM in an effort to reduce appointment wait times.  

Effective October 31, 2022 – the online scheduler will no longer be used to schedule mobile cardiology appointments.  All future appointment requests will require completion of the referral request form below.  This change was required to improve efficiency of appointment scheduling and to allow scheduling of multiple patients during one visit which was not possible using the online scheduler. 

Clinics can still login to the online scheduler here and view their appointment dashboard to see confirmed appointments/cancel confirmed appointments.  If a reschedule of an appointment is required, please contact me via email.

Consultations are not available on statutory holidays or weekends

Mobile cardiology appointment request:

All practices located within the mobile coverage region (the HRM and Truro) will need to complete the following referral form to submit a request for an appointment.   

Please do not submit this form if your hospital is located outside of the HRM & Truro as I am unable to accommodate mobile cardiology appointments outside of these regions at this time.
