Electrocardiography

Temple Heights Animal Hospital uses electrocardiograms to assess pet heart electrical activity. EKGs, are they are referred to, are non-invasive and does not require shaving or sedation. EKGs may be performed for many reasons-- heart arrhythmias being the most common ailment.

Probes are attached to the skin and waveforms are produced. The veterinarian is then able to determine how the electrical system of the heart is working. This is an extremely beneficial and painless procedure.
