Holter Monitoring

Holter and event monitors are small digital ECG units that can record every beat of your pet’s heart while he or she is at home. Typically worn for 24 hours, Holter monitors record the ECG continuously and are useful in evaluating the severity/importance of ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias, as well as the response to medication for these arrhythmias. Additionally, Holters are commonly recommended in the diagnostic workup for dogs that are fainting or collapsing.  Event monitors are worn for up to 30 days, and the ECG is recorded when the button is pushed, allowing the owner to record an ECG directly when an episode is occurring.
