HELP: How do you pick a feline cardiologist?

3 y.o. DSH/Scottish Fold ('straight fold'), 5.5 kilos, energetic and outgoing.

Fast Eddie was taken to vet for bolting his kibble (behavioural issue; why, well, you'd have to ask him, as he is Top Cat in the household, dominant over a 10 y.o. Scottish Fold and a 3 y.o. Flame Point Siamese longhaired tub-o'-lard).

Vet observed a heart murmor, rated slighly over 3 on a scale of 1 to 6. Radiographs and bloodwork due back tomorrow, cardiomyopathy or hyperthyroid likely causes.

So, how do you pick a feline cardiologist? The closest vet schools are OSU in Corvallis, WSU in Pullman and UC Davis, but Portland Magazine does not profile vets like they do MDs.
