Knowledge-Sharing in Cardiology

AniCura Cardio, a platform for knowledge-sharing in cardiology, was launched in AniCura Germany. The aim of AniCura Cardio is to support the veterinarians and to set the standards in cardiovascular medicine at AniCura.

What is AniCura Cardio?
Here comes a short introduction to the platform.

Who are we?
We are a team of board-certified cardiologists with years of experience in clinical and interventional cardiology:


  • Sabine Hertzsch, DACVIM (Cardiology), AniCura Tierklinik Ahlen
  • Nicola Wiedemann, DECVIM-CA (Cardiology), AniCura Tierklinik Augsburg
  • Lisa Keller, DACVIM (Cardiology)
  • Markus Killich, DACVIM (Cardiology), DECVIM-CA (Cardiology), AniCura Tierklink Haar

What do we do?
Besides our daily routine medical work, we do pacemaker implantations and other minimally invasive procedures like embolization of patent ductus arteriosus, balloon valvuloplasty (a procedure to repair a heart valve that has a narrowed opening) and heartworm extractions. These procedures are performed in the two cardiovascular centers, AniCura Ahlen and AniCura Haar on a regular basis. AniCura Tierklinik Haar also offers an external 24-h-holter service, which is a continuous recording of the heart’s rate and rhythm for 24 hours.

How can you benefit from AniCura Cardio?
We strongly believe that a solid knowledge base and a lot of clinical experience are key in becoming a good veterinary cardiologist. For this reason we aim to support the training of our veterinarians, who are interested in cardiovascular medicine.
