Welcome to HeartVets

HeartVets is an independent, specialist-led cardiology referral and diagnostics (telemedicine) service for assessment and treatment of cardiorespiratory problems in veterinary patients, predominantly dogs, cats and horses.

If you are a vet wishing to refer a case please click here.

If you are an owner and are concerned about your pet please speak to your vet about making a referral to see one of our cardiologists.

The team is led by Dr. Mark Patteson, Jo Harris and Dave Dickson, who are all RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) Recognised Specialists in Veterinary Cardiology.

We are based at Vale Referrals in Dursley, Gloucestershire, where we offer a 24-hour emergency service supported by a fully equipped multidisciplinary  referral hospital. We also offer satellite clinics at referral hospitals and veterinary practices throughout the south-west UK and Wales, as well as a mobile cardiology service for visiting horses.

To help you manage cardiology cases in-house we offer a range of telemedicine services to suit your needs. As well as ECG and radiograph interpretation and Holter monitor rental and analysis, we can now provide innovative resting ECG equipment complete with cloud storage of recordings and easy sharing capability.

For cardiologists we offer Holter analysis for Spacelabs (previously Delmar Reynolds) recordings with optional case review and interpretation where required. Click here to upload Holter files (registered users only)

HeartVets bespoke HolterVests and EchoTables are available to purchase via our online cardiology shop. We are also an official Spacelabs retail partner and provide Lifecard CF Holter monitors to the veterinary market – please contact us for more information.
