A Holter monitor is a portable ECG device worn by a pet which will continuously record heart rate and rhythm (often for up to 24 hours). Its extended recording period is useful for detecting occasional heart rhythm disturbances (called arrhythmias) which would be difficult to identify in the shorter period of time provided by a standard ECG. Our team will use this information, together with other testing to determine the nature and severity of your pet's heart disease and create the best possible treatment plan for any arrhythmias.

Cardiology

Why does my animal need to see a Board-certified Veterinary Cardiologist?

Commonly called Cardiologists, these Specialists focus on diagnosing and treating disease of the heart and lungs, which include:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Damage to the heart muscle or valves
  • Coughing and other breathing problems
  • Congenital (present at birth) defects
  • Cardiac arrhythmias (problems with the rate and/or rhythm of your animal's heart)

What should I expect during the visit with a Board-certified Veterinary Cardiologist?

The Cardiologist will perform a complete and thorough physical examination on your animal, and based on these initial findings, additional tests will be discussed. Depending on your animal's condition, diagnostic testing or treatments may include:


  • Echocardiography - non-invasive ultrasound imaging of the heart
  • Electrocardiography (ECGs) - electrical reading of the heart's rhythm
  • 24 hour Holter Monitors - 24 hour ECG recording
  • Heart Registry Certification for breeding programs
  • Chest Radiography (x-rays)
