Veterinary Study
Private Appointments Available
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA

The Cardiology Service at the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (Penn Vet) is offering low-cost echocardiograms (ultrasound of the heart to evaluate function) for Sphynx cats. Other breeds are also welcome. Echocardiograms will be performed by veterinary cardiology residents under the supervision of board-certified veterinary cardiologists.

Sessions can be scheduled for one or more cats:
One cat: $186.50
Two cats: $162.50 each
Three cats: $136.00 each
Four or more cats: $109.50 each

Cats diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial investigating nutritional supplements to help support heart muscle function. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart muscle enlarges and can no longer pump blood effectively.

The study involves 2 visits (initial evaluation and follow-up evaluation in 4 months) and once daily administration of the nutritional supplement. Eligible cats with owners who choose to participate in the study will receive the nutritional supplements, 2 physical examinations including blood pressure measurements and echocardiograms, and a thyroid hormone level blood test at no cost.

To schedule an echocardiogram with the cardiology service, please contact Penn Vet’s appointment desk at: 215-746-8387.
