Pet Electrocardiography Services
The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that helps determine the heart’s rhythm and pace. Your veterinarian may need to combine the results of an ECG with those of blood tests, x-rays, and even cardiac ultrasound to fully understand how your pet’s heart is performing. An ECG procedure is quick and painless, lasting only a few minutes.
The heart receives electrical signals from the body, which encourages heartbeats to occur at a regular rhythm and tempo. An electrocardiograph device can detect and record electrical changes caused by heartbeat. Your veterinarian can calculate your pet’s heart rhythm and rate using this information. Electrocardiography is the process of using an electrocardiograph machine to measure heart rate and rhythm, with the end result being an electrocardiogram (ECG).
