Welcome to Paddington Vet Clinic: Expert Blood Pressure Monitoring for Your Beloved Pets

Why Blood Pressure Monitoring Matters for Pets

While blood pressure monitoring is more commonly associated with human healthcare, pets can also experience fluctuations in blood pressure that could indicate underlying health issues. Our experienced veterinary team acknowledges that high and low blood pressure can serve as valuable markers for potential illnesses in your pets.

Unlike routine human blood pressure check-ups, we don't routinely measure blood pressure in pets. However, in certain cases, it can prove to be an invaluable diagnostic tool for pets with specific diseases or symptoms. Our skilled veterinarians are equipped to identify when blood pressure monitoring is necessary and beneficial for your pet's well-being.

Protecting Your Pet: The Significance of Blood Pressure Monitoring

During surgical procedures at Paddington Vet, we diligently monitor blood pressure for two primary reasons: hypotension and hypertension. Our commitment to your pet's safety drives us to address these potential issues promptly.

Hypotension: Safeguarding Vital Organs

Hypotension, or low blood pressure, is a concern we are vigilant about during surgeries. Low blood pressure can compromise the blood and oxygen supply to critical organs like the brain and kidneys, which could lead to severe health consequences. By closely monitoring blood pressure, we mitigate the risk of inadequate oxygen delivery and help prevent potential cardiac and respiratory complications.

Hypertension: Identifying Hidden Dangers

While less common, hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a condition we recognise as a potential threat to your pet's health. Beyond surgery, excessive blood pressure can lead to various problems, including sudden vision loss, nosebleeds, and chronic kidney failure. Our comprehensive approach to blood pressure monitoring extends beyond surgical procedures to safeguard your pet's long-term well-being.
