Cardiology Information for Breeders
Certain breeds of dogs and cats, such as Boxer Dogs, Doberman Pinschers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Maine coon cats, and Ragdoll cats, are known to be at a higher risk of heart disease. Our cardiology team is one of only a few in Long Island able to screen your animal for heart problems prior to breeding.
- OFA certification
The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (www.offa.org) is a breed registry/database for purebred animals. If you are intending to breed your animal, and it is a breed for which cardiac disease is known or suspected to be inherited, you should have your animal screened for cardiac disease prior to breeding.
- ARCH Registry
The ACVIM Registry of Cardiac Health (ARCH) is a more comprehensive registry than the OFA, and is limited to exams by Board-certified cardiologists. Exam findings and certifications also include congenital and acquired disease.
