Re: [FH] We can't find the right vet!
I just went to http://acvim.org and looked first for
cardiologists in CT. I did not find any but I found
several small animal internists:
Peterson, Erik Nels Granby, CT
Carter, Wayne O Groton, CT
Holzworth, Jean New Preston, CT
Berkwitt, Larry Norwalk, CT
Wood, Emilia F. Ridgefield, CT
Knaack, Kenneth E. W. Hartford, CT
Toomey, Jane Marie Woodstock, CT
Internists are qualified to treat HCM and do have
ultrasound equipment. Rudy's vet is an internist
rather than a cardiologist. Hope this helps.

Do you Yahoo!?
Yahoo! Mail - Helps protect you from nasty viruses.
- Peterson is the traveling cardiologist we use, but probably too far
away for Jess.
My own vet is not in there which is why I don't consider those lists

- Hi Jess,
I know how difficult and stressful this can be. I have lived in
Danbury for the past 6 years. I use Bethel Village Square Animal
Hospital for routine care and Dr. Roumanis--vet cardiologist at the
Berkshire Animal Hospital in Sandy Hook (15 minutes rom Danbury)for
Smokey's subaortic stenosis care.
I sent you a private message with more information.
Please let me know how I can help you...
