Oakdale, MN (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota is proud to announce that they have hired Dr. Michelle Rose, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology), a board-certified veterinary cardiologist who is dedicated to diagnosing, managing, and treating disorders of the heart and cardiovascular system.
Dr. Rose will see dogs, cats and exotic pets that are referred to her because their primary veterinarians either suspect that these pets might have heart disease, or have already confirmed that they have heart disease and are seeking to optimize their therapy. Dr. Rose’s number-one priority is that her patients have a good quality of life at home, for as long as possible.
Another common reason that pets are referred to Dr. Rose is that their primary veterinarians detected a heart murmur (whooshing sound) or arrhythmia (irregular heart rhythm) on their physical exam prior to having anesthesia performed for surgery or dental procedures. The many tools available to Dr. Rose and other cardiologists will reveal an enormous amount of information about how safe it is to go ahead with these planned procedures. Dr. Rose also performs specialized procedures, including echocardiography, electrocardiography (ECG), Holter monitors, blood tests and blood pressure.
Since Dr. Rose is a board-certified cardiologist, it means she has completed four years of veterinary school, a one-year internship and three years of a cardiology residency under the supervision of other boarded cardiologists. She was also required to pass two national board exams at the end of her second and third years of residency training. Dr. Rose has also received specialized training in the management of cardiac disease and is familiar and comfortable with multimodal treatment protocols that optimize a patient’s quality of life.
Dr. Rose is available for consultation on Mondays and Thursdays. She works out of the Oakdale location and is also available to come to patient’s veterinary clinics with her portable echocardiogram.
Those who own pets with heart-related problems or disease can call the Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota at 651-501-3766 or ask a family veterinarian for a referral.
