The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that helps to ascertain the heart’s rhythm and rate. Your veterinarian may need to combine the results of an ECG with those from blood tests, x-rays, and possibly cardiac ultrasound in order to properly understand how your pet’s heart is functioning. An ECG procedure is quick, safe, and non-invasive. It just takes a few minutes.

The body sends electrical signals to the heart, which stimulate normal rhythm and tempo in heartbeats. A device called an electrocardiograph may detect and record electrical changes caused by a heartbeat. Your veterinarian can use this information to determine the heart rate and rhythm of your pet. Using an electrocardiograph to assess heart rate and rhythm is known as electrocardiography.
