What Vets Are Saying

We love hearing feedback from our customers. We always strive to make our veterinary
medical devices, apps, and services even better. Here is a look at what people are saying
about our Veterinary Heart Monitor and how it has changed their practices.

"Absolutely loving this instrument. We have it in constant use and can no longer practice without it!" Dan Simpson, DVM, West Bay Animal Hospital, Warwick, RI

"The Veterinary Heart Monitor is very easy to set up and is very user-friendly. I wet the left lateral body wall with alcohol, press the device against the chest, and rotate it slightly until a clean tracing locks in.

The tracing is of excellent quality. Transmission of the data to the cloud is seamless, permitting storage and retrieval when needed.

I highly recommend for rapid ECG screening." Gary D. Norsworthy, DVM, Diplomate ABVP (Feline),
Alamo Feline Health Center, San Antonio, TX

“I was surprised how well it worked without having to shave the animal. That caught my attention.” Marc Kraus, DVM, DACVIM, Senior Lecturer, Cardiology,
Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

"I think it’s amazing, I honestly just can’t believe how well it works. As a veterinarian there are many times when you want to do an ECG but you have to roll out the cart, get two people to hold the animal on its side, then put the clips on, then deal with the client being upset that their animal is being held down and has clips on it, then get the reading.

Now the animal can sit on the owner's lap and just put its paws on the device and you have it. It is so great." Jennifer Chaitman, VMD, ACVIM,
Veterinary Internal Medicine and Allergy Specialists, New York, NY
