EKGs are taken when pets are suspected of having heart disease. Electrocardiography is also used as a monitoring tool for anesthesia.
The EKG is used to analyze disturbances of the rhythm of the heart. Various rhythm disturbances, called arrythmias, occur and include disorders that slow down as well as speed up the heart. Symptoms of arrythmias include exercise intolerance, weakness or even fainting. Some arrythmias produce no symptoms.
