Why did my pet’s doctor order an ECG?

If your veterinarian suggests an ECG, don’t be alarmed. ECGs aren’t a sure sign of a cardiac concern. Any of the following indicators are reasons for performing one:

  • Heart rhythm that’s difficult to hear clearly on a physical exam
  • Potential irregular heart rhythm
  • Monitoring of a drug with cardiac side effects
  • In preparation for and during general anesthesia
  • Fainting or respiratory symptoms
  • Confirmation of a preliminary imaging diagnosis

If you’re unsure why your pet is receiving an ECG, don’t be afraid to ask. You are part of your pet’s care team, and you deserve all the information available to find out what your pet’s doctor is looking for.For more info visit nearby veterinary clinic / klinik haiwan.
