Any irregular heartbeat detected during an exam may need to be explored further via electrocardiography (EKG). Using non invasive electrodes placed on your pet’s skin, an EKG checks the conduction of electricity through the heart. This helps us understand more about their pulse, heart rhythm, and heart rate. The results can help diagnose ailments like arrhythmia or Boxer cardiomyopathy. We believe it is a necessity to have this capability on hand to better care for your pet.
