The painless, noninvasive test helps detect irregularities in your pet’s heart rate and rhythm.
Why does my pet need an ECG/EKG?
There are several reasons an ECG/EKG might be ordered. If our veterinarians hear an irregularity as they listen to your pet’s heart through a stethoscope or if your pet has symptoms of heart rhythm problems, such as fainting, we might order the test. If your pet takes a medication that can impact heart function, we would use the ECG/EKG to check their heart periodically and ensure heart function is not being adversely affected.
What happens during an ECG/EKG?
An ECG/EKG takes only one to two minutes and is painless. Your pet is connected to an ECG/EKG unit and their heart rate and rhythm are transmitted to a board-certified cardiologist to review. After the test is done, our vets can go over the results with you.
