HeartVets Diagnostics

our telemedicine service for vets in primary care practice

Here at HeartVets we are passionate about providing cardiology care to as many pets as possible. Using our innovative technology your vets can benefit from our clinical expertise and deliver first-class care in their own clinics without the need for referral every time. Consider us the “cardiologist in your pocket”!

Register with us for free and start using our services today. Once your practice account is created you can log in at any time to select the service you require.

If you are a client and are concerned that your pet may have a heart problem, please speak with your usual vet in the first instance. They may wish to refer your pet for a cardiology investigation at one of our clinics, or they can register with us to use our online services.

Ambulatory ECG (Holter monitoring)

Holter monitoring allows us to monitor heart rate and rhythm away from the clinic, to see how the heart responds during exercise or sleep and monitor arrhythmia burden. We work closely with Spacelabs UK, Equafleece and Medical Pet Shirts to bring the latest ECG technology and apparel to our service. Dogs and cats can both now be comfortably monitored in the stress-free environment of their own home.

Holter monitoring is important for the following conditions:

  • Investigation of syncope
  • Identifying frequency, severity and associated risk of arrhythmia detected in the clinic
  • Assessing heart rate in atrial fibrillation or after rate control medication
  • Screening for arrhythmia in breeds at risk of cardiomyopathy e.g. Dobermans, Boxers, Great Danes, Scottish Deerhounds.
  • Screening for arrhythmia or myocardial hypoxia and assessing risk of “heart attack” in cats with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).

For cardiologists using Spacelabs equipment we offer remote upload and analysis, with optional case review and interpretation by one of our cardiologists where required. Please upload your Holter to Sentinel database using the link on the right, and then register and complete the form below to submit a Holter for analysis

Holter monitors and vests can be purchased from our cardiology shop
