Dr Rita Singh

Cardiology Specialist


Veterinary Cardiac Referrals is run by Dr Rita Singh BSc BVMS DipVetClin Stud FANZCVS DipACVIM. Rita is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in Cardiology and now the ONLY registered specialist in Veterinary Cardiology in NSW.

Rita obtained her veterinary degree from Murdoch University in Perth, WA in 1995. After a two year stint in the UK, she returned to Australia to complete a rotating internship in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at the University of Sydney. This was followed by a three year residency in Small Animal Internal Medicine at the Veterinary Specialist Centre in Sydney. It was during this time as a resident that she came to realize that cardiology was her true passion. In 2008 Rita commenced a cardiology residency at the University of California, Davis and became a Diplomate of the American College of Internal Medicine in Cardiology in 2011.

Rita loves all aspects of veterinary cardiology and is devoted to providing quality and compassionate care for your family members. While the majority of our patients are dogs and cats, Rita has also been trained in cardiology of horses and exotic species including ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, turtles, snakes, iguanas, monkeys and large cats. Rita is also experienced in providing surgical and interventional procedures for your family members including pacemaker placement and correction of certain arrhythmias.
