Each client will receive a personalised information booklet that will outline the details of the patients diagnosis and enable them to monitor and record vital trends. We also offer a complimentary post referral case monitoring service operated by our veterinary nurse, Sheridan Smith.

Sheridan is also happy to discuss setting up nurse cardiac clinics within your own practice.
