Due to high demand for cardiology appointments within the HRM and immediate surrounding areas and prolonged wait times, beginning in January 2023 I will be limiting my mobile consultations to coverage area highlighted below.  With the reduced mobile coverage area for hospitals outside of the HRM, stationary cardiology consultations will be offered for clients of hospitals outside of this coverage area if they are willing to travel.  These stationary appointments will be offered once monthly beginning in September 2022 through Petworks Veterinary Hospital in Dartmouth by appointment only.   All stationary appointments will be scheduled through ECVC directly (do NOT contact Petworks) and a referral request form must be submitted below by the referring veterinarian in order to schedule the consultation.   

ECVC Mobile Coverage Area effective January 2023

Submitting Referral Request for Stationary Cardiology Consultation

The following form must be completed by the referring veterinarian to request an appointment for a stationary cardiology consultation with ECVC.  This consultation includes a complete cardiac work-up (exam, blood pressure, ECG, echocardiogram) as well as a consultation with the pet owner.  A referral report will be sent to the referring veterinarian upon completion of the referral.  This is for clients of hospitals located outside of the above coverage area ONLY.  These appointments are limited and are scheduled on a first come, first served basis and are scheduled directly through ECVC (NOT Petworks).
