Digital EKG

An electrocardiogram or EKG (ECG), is a noninvasive painless diagnostic test used for recording the heart’s electrical activity. This is useful in diagnosing many cardiac diseases such as arrhythmias, valvular heart disease and heart block as well as changes in the shape and rotational axis of the heart. Our electrocardiograph is networked allowing us to seamlessly incorporate these data into your pets permanent electronic medical record. If your pet proves to be a difficult or unusual case, we will, with your permission, send the history, and all pertinent laboratory test results including digital radiographs via the internet to a board certified veterinary cardiologist for a second opinion. We often obtain a report back within hours or by the next day.
