Dr. Agarwal has always been fascinated by veterinary cardiology, which allows veterinarians to identify various heart conditions in pets as they can’t express their ailment and discomfort in words. She feels privileged to have the training and expertise to identify various acquired and congenital heart conditions in animals and offer treatment options that can favorably alter the course of the disease and prognosis. Dr. Agarwal looks forward to working closely with pets’ family members to ensure their pet(s) get the best possible care.
