What Is an ECG?

Electrocardiography provides a readout of your pet’s electrical activity. This provides our veterinary specialists with important information, including:

  • The rhythm of your pet’s heart
  • Their heart rate
  • Any potential issues or irregularities

These heart problems, called arrhythmias, can have a serious effect on your pet’s overall health. By quickly diagnosing these issues with an ECG, we can identify their underlying causes and begin treatment, if necessary.

The ECG Process

In general, electrocardiography does not require your pet to be sedated, though it will require your pe to hold as still as possible so our specialists can get the data they need. Leads will be placed directly on your pet’s skin at various points across their body. These leads will record the electrical data that our Purcellville veterinarians use diagnose your pet.

In addition to ECGs, our specialists may use other diagnostic tests and imaging to discover the severity of the problem and help develop a treatment plan. We will also use our considerable experience to educate pet owners on what they can do to care for their pet’s health at home.
