Symptoms of Heart Disease

While comprehensive testing is the best method for an accurate diagnosis, if your pet is exhibiting any of the following symptoms or behaviors, your veterinarian may recommend an ECG to evaluate your pet for heart disease:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Weakness
  • Exhaustion
  • Refusal to exercise
  • Coughing

What Is Electrocardiography?

Your pet’s heart functions due to an electrical impulse that can be recorded and analyzed over a period of time by an electrocardiogram and possibly uncover any irregularities including arrhythmias, deviations in the size and structure of the heart chambers, and unusual conduction. Your veterinarian can interpret the ECG to gain a better understanding of the function of your pet’s heart. Electrocardiography can be used to rule out as well as confirm certain conditions of the heart and enable our team to provide more suitable treatment for your companion.
