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.

simply a diagnostic for the heart I can provide the Doctor's clinic
info if you need to schedule a full consultation. If you have
questions on a repeat scan, please bring your paperwork from those
previous scans.

We also do not want any sick cats (something contagious) attending
the clinic please.

The echocardiograms will be done in person, by the cardiologist, at the show hall. A deposit of $20 is required to reserve a spot for scanning, which is non-refundable. Depending on the turnout (we're hoping for the cheaper end), the scan costs will be $125-$145. The final amount will be emailed to each person before the clinic is held.

This clinic is open to all unscanned cats or cats who have scanned clear in the past. If your cat has been diagnosed with a heart condition, please schedule to have your cardiologist evaluate your companion at a clinic location where more in-depth diagnostics can be performed.

PETS ARE ALLOWED with a referral letter from you veterinarian stating either a) that the cat is to be screened proactively or b) that the cat has a condition that would require him/her to be screened. Please begin the process to get this letter as it will need to be faxed to the clinic PRIOR to your appointment. A referral letter IS NOT NEEDED for breeders or retired breeders.

CATS WITH PREXISTING CONDITIONS MAY ATTEND. If your cat has previously been diagnosed with HCM, other heart disease or a murmur, YOU MAY attend the clinic. IF SEDATION is needed, there will be an additional fee of $25-30. Each appointment will last approximately 50 minutes and you will be required to remain with your pet for restraint and calming.

Please let me know if you would be interested in attending so we can get a count. We will then subsequently book the date(s). These clinics will be on either Thursdays or Fridays.
