McMaster & Heap Practice have purchased a portable “AliveCor” ECG Machine that allows us to assess lead 2 of an ECG trace in dogs and cats. It is a case that snaps onto an iphone and you place this over the patients heart on the left side of the animal. They can stand or lie down.You just wet the coat of the pet with alcohol- no restraint and no clipping. You can get an electrical trace of the heart lasting 1-5 mins and print off these results to view and measure. A simple, accurate way to assess heart rate and rhythm.
