Complete Instructions with photos
We have been running 24 hour holters (ECG’s) on my boxers for many decades every year, allowing me to be fairly certain that there is no cardiomyopathy in my breeding program. For many years, we have paid the $400-$500 fee to run the 24 hour holter and have it interpreted. Occasionally, after taking our dog to be hooked up, returning home for the 24 hour period, going back in to have it all removed and sent in for interpretation, we found out that the holter needed to be hooked up and run again due to faulty hookup which causes artifacts in the data produced.

We invested in a top-of-the-line digital Alba monitoring system, a great vest in two sizes for smaller and medium sized dogs, and learned from cardiologists how to properly do the hook-up and which electrodes and tape work best.
We use this equipment to holter my own dogs each year. However, it is not in use most of the year and we wish to offer it to other breeders/dog owners who would like to holter their dogs.
So we put together a package that contains absolutely everything a person needs to holter a dog down to the skin wipes and tape. The only thing you might need is a shaver and some Gold Bond powder. We send you a complete holter package for ten days, excellent instructions, photos, and the materials to submit to Alba for a complete report.  We provide locking electrodes which are high-end and don't come loose even with an active dog. They come with the holter package and we offer extras in case you accidentally destroy one during the hook-up.

Additional Hook-Up Kits are also available in this store.  You can holter as many dogs as desired during the rental period.

There is some debate about the value of shaving dogs before attaching electrodes.  Some breeders choose not to shave and believe that they receive excellent results.  In over four decades of running holters with board certified cardiologists, we have never seen a hookup done without shaving.  Shaving reduces the possibility of artifacts which must be ruled out by technicians who review the data.  Our instructions recommend shaving to give you the best possible results.

Contact me through the store for the rental contract or print using the link below.  (Scroll down and click on Rental Contract for Digital Holter.)  A $400 refundable deposit must be paid prior to shipment as a security deposit.  Once the system is returned and evaluated, the deposit (less any late fees or fees for damage or replacement) is refunded through Paypal.  See below to pay deposit.

SHIPPING:  PLEASE CHOOSE PRIORITY MAIL OR PRIORITY EXPRESS WITH INSURANCE.  STANDARD POST DOES NOT HAVE TRACKING AND MAY TAKE OVER A WEEK TO GET TO YOU.  If the store does not calculate enough shipping to cover priority with full insurance, you will be asked to pay the difference before shipment.  Priority Mail charge is typically around $35-$40 in a Medium Flat Rate Box.  You are required to ship back using 1-2 day shipping with tracking and full replacement insurance as well.

I will definitely be renting this again!
I did my first holter ever using this kit. The instructions were clear and it was very user friendly even for the inexperienced. The package was fully complete so no need to purchase anything extra! Plus, it's very economical to be able to do it yourself! I will definitely be renting again it for yearly clearances!

Really appreciated all the support and how easy this whole process was to rent the Holter Monitor. This is the first time I have ever performed this test at home and the directions and support provided by Paula was incredible. I will definitely use this process going forward and hope others do the same. You will not regret it.

So Easy
I was pretty apprehensive about doing this as it seemed like it would be a lot more work. It was very easy with the step-by-step instructions provided. Alba was also very responsive to my order and report was emailed very quickly and the report was very easy to understand.

I was glad to find this rental service after learning that it would cost $700 to have my dog holtered locally. The test turned out to be fairly simple to do myself with the detailed instructions. Thanks!
