At PetNest Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on providing

the best veterinary technology to our patients.

An electrocardiogram, also known as an ECG or EKG, is a common test typically used to examine a patient’s heart. When your pet’s heart beats, an electric signal is generated inside an area of the heart known as the pacemaker. During an electrocardiogram, these signals are recorded. Upon reviewing these signals, our veterinarian can determine if there are any abnormalities or irregularities in your pet’s heart. We are thrilled to provide pet echocardiograms in Frisco and encourage you to contact us if your pet needs this type of testing.

When Your Pet Might Need

an Electrocardiogram

Several symptoms may prompt our team to recommend an electrocardiogram for your pet:
  • Lethargy
  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Exercise intolerance
  • Coughing
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Abnormal lung sounds
  • Heart murmur
  • Irregular pulse

How an Electrocardiogram Is Performed

No special preparation is needed for an electrocardiogram. Your pet will either be standing or lying on an exam room table during the test. We will apply a special conduction gel to help electrical signals travel to the ECG machine. We will also apply electrodes to your pet’s skin at the base of each leg. The procedure takes anywhere from one to several minutes, and we will keep your pet still during this time.

The ECG will tell us whether your pet’s heart rate is normal. It will also help us identify any irregularities in the rhythm and determine if the heart is of normal size.
