Many heart disease rhythm disturbances occur only now and then. An electrocardiograph (ECG) looks at the rhythm of the heart over short period of about 2 minutes. The Holter monitor is an extended ECG recorder that is fitted to your pet and left in place for 24 hours.

With the Holter monitor in place, we have a much better chance of recording them over 24 hours than with a paper strip recorder or even on the electrocardiogram display screen.

Our latest Holter can be left in place for up to 5 days, acting as an “event monitor”. This is invaluable for determining if a collapse episode is caused by heart problems or has some other cause such as a brain event like a stroke.
