Veterinary Teaching Hospital

Holter monitoring assesses an animal patient’s heart rhythm and rate.  The Holter monitor is a portable electrocardiogram (ECG), which records the electrical activity of the heart continuously over 24 hours.

Your veterinarian may recommend a Holter monitor for several reasons:

  • an arrhythmia is suspected
  • your pet has had collapse or fainting episodes
  • to monitor patients heart rate and rhythm while on certain medications
  • your animal has unexplained dizziness, lethargy, or excessive panting
  • to monitor heart rhythms for animals with a pacemaker

Our Holter service provides:

  • all necessary equipment and instructions for a 24-hour digital Holter monitor recording
  • *a full report with recommendations from a WSU board-certified veterinary cardiologist 
  • discounts on recheck Holter monitors for long-term care

*Note: The Holter monitor report and recommendations will be provided to the ordering doctor unless communicated otherwise. Please note that the report will often have treatment recommendations.  If the patient was previously seen by WSU Cardiology, we can prescribe medication if the patient was seen by WSU Cardiology within the last 12 months.   Medication refills can also be arranged with the local veterinary team.
