Electrocardiography is a technique used to measure and record the heart’s electrical activity. It is used to determine rate and rhythm disorders that can sometimes be fatal unless treated appropriately. Hearts are normally checked when your pet is in for it’s annual booster and this is often when the problem is first detected. As with all medical problems, early recognition and treatment is best.

In some cases it may be necessary for us to send the ECG to a specialist cardiologist for interpretation. This can be carried out quickly and effectively with results normally being faxed back to us in 24 hours.
