E.C.G

An E.C.G (electrocardiogram) is a test which measures the electrical activity of the heart.


Electrical impulses cause the heart to beat and these can be measured by placing electrodes on the animal’s skin. The ECG machine converts the electrical pulses and displays them on a print out which can be analysed to allow the vet to know whether the heart is beating correctly. The ECG gives the vet information about the heart which can then be used to identify heart disease, and so we can prescribe an appropriate course of medication.


We are also able to use our ECG machine to monitor very high risk anaesthetic patients to make the procedure as safe as it possibly can be.
