Electrocardiogram (ECG)/ Blood Pressure Monitoring
An electrocardiogram measures the electrical impulses of the heart. Changes in these electrical impulses can be caused by electrolyte imbalances, respiratory disease, cancer, trauma and heart disease.
With our ECG we can immediately determine if your pet's heart is beating in the correct rhythm, and if not, why. We also have the ability to send your pet's ECG to a cardiologist for an expert's opinion.
Our blood pressure monitor (PetMap) allows us to check your pet's blood pressure in both emergency situations and diagnostic procedures. Traumatized patients can commonly have low blood pressure, whereas, patients with disease such as kidney failure can have high blood pressure. Proper diagnosis and treatment can prevent serious issues including death.
