Holter Results

Hey Guys,
I haven't been here for awhile (sorry!) but Beau just got a baseline holter done (he is 2.5 years old and a rescue so we don't know his background).

Anyway here it is :

The Mean Heart Rate was 69.
The Maximum Heart Rate was 251 at 11:45:48AM2.
The Minimum Heart Rate was 33 at 8:20:15AM2.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ventricular Ectopy
Total: 3
Single: 3
Pairs: 0
Total Runs: 0

Supraventricular Ectopy
Total: 0
Single: 0
Pairs: 0
Total Runs: 0
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pauses: Total: 0 ( Greater than 5.0 sec.)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I work with "human medicine" so interpreting this is sort of confusing for me but I assume that the ventricular ectopy is basically like PVCs in people, in which case, only 3 with only singles would be considered totally normal...is this the case?

Should we still consider an echo? He has no symptoms or any reason to believe he has heart issues right now...

Thanks!

Another update-Beau is working on becoming a blood donor!

I'm no expert as I've only had one holtering done & that was on a dobe that was already diagnosed with DCM.
His results over 24 hrs (so you can compare) were:

Heartbeat averaged 112bpm.
Total beats 161,280 of which 18300 were VPC's (abnormal heartbeats/arrhythmia). These VPC's all occurred as singles, no pairs.

There are others here who have had way more experience than me with holters & can go into greater depth than I can, but you're results look great compared to mine.

I believe an echo should be done regardless of holter results.

The echo is very useful for making sure the valves are functioning properly, and most of all, to measure the size of the heart. If started early the initial echo can serve as a very useful baseline and is helpful in catching DCM in the early stages.

Yes that's the normal holter result. The healthy dogs may have occasional VPCs.
If you request a cardiologist explanation he will confirm it.

Yes, I agree.
