Please join us in welcoming Jess Weidman, DVM back to Richmond CVCA. We are grateful to Dr. Weidman and the associates of CVCA for their time and effort in this providing this important cardiac clinic for early detection of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM). We are especially thankful for being able to offer this Clinic during the pandemic.
DCM is one of the most common acquired heart diseases in dogs, especially those breeds with large chest cavities. Large and giant breeds are most affected, but it also occurs in smaller breed dogs and cats as well. DCM is a slowly progressive disease, however in animals with early detection, medical therapy can help prolong survival and provide a better quality of life for several more years.
Because of CVCA’s support and cooperation, we are able to offer this Cardiac Clinic at a significantly reduced cost. However, we must have a MINIMUM of 20 exams scheduled, or the clinic will be CANCELLED! This is a savings of 50 to 75%, as the cost of this Echo exam is typically over $500. We also have a limit of 30 spots available.
A portion of the proceeds from this clinic will also assist neglected, abused and abandoned Doberman Pinschers. DAR&E (Doberman Assistance, Rescue and Education) is a non-profit all-volunteer organization operating in DC, Maryland, Virginia & parts of WV.
The clinic will be held inside at the Dogwood Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center.
THIS IS A SCREENING CLINIC ONLY – PETS WITH KNOWN PROBLEMS
SHOULD MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE THEIR REGULAR CARDIOLOGIST.
Tell all your friends and fellow pet lovers about this clinic. This clinic is open to ALL breeds of dogs or cats.
In order to offer this service at this low cost, we must have a MINIMUM OF 20 dogs or the clinic will be cancelled! Tell all of your friends and fellow dog lovers about this event so that we can hold the clinic! Keep in mind, this service normally costs $500 – at this special clinic price, you can have two of your babies tested for less than the regular cost for just one! Please don’t miss this wonderful opportunity! We’re limited to 30 dogs total so don’t miss out!
