Worldwide Feline Cardiologist/Sonographer Database & Map
- <Permission to cross-post granted>
TIBCS (The International Bengal Cat Society) has added a map application to
the Official TIBCS site so members can post cardiologists and/or
sonographers that they have used for their HCM screens. It is not a
referral service, but just a way for people to find someone to do their HCM
screening. Data needed are: name, office name, phone number, address,
Cardiologist or sonographer, board certified or not, email, and website if
any. Again, this is not a referral but a database with map function.
Everyone is encouraged to add their screeners regardless of what country you
are from. Ultimately, TIBCS is thinking of adding a link to the public area
of their website so that this database can be used as a public service. We
need more entries first.
Please check out the site and add your screener's info. To find a
cardiologist near you, all that will eventually be needed to do is click on
the map at your location and a list of clinics will be pulled up. I think
this could be very useful. We currently have just under 50 clinicians
listed. You need to be a member of OfficialTIBCS to add data but it is
searchable by non-members. This is just one more service TIBCS is bringing
to the feline community.
If you are not a member of OficialTIBCS you can email the information to me
directly and I will add it. Email me at genetics@....
If you want to use the map/database function go here:
