EKG

Our hospital routinely performs Electrocardiograms as part of our Cardiology Services. An electrocardiogram (also known as an “EKG” or “ECG”) is a readout of the electrical activity of the heart.

If your veterinarian hears any heart rhythm abnormality (called an arrhythmia) in your pet's heartbeat, they will recommend an EKG. The readout will enable your veterinarian to determine the precise cause and appropriate treatment for the arrhythmia. Although the procedure requires that your pet hold very still for several minutes while we obtain the electrical data, it is pain-free and generally does not require sedation. Several clips (called leads) are placed onto your pet's skin at various body points in order to accurately record the information your veterinarian needs.
