Thank you for your interest in testing your dog for Inherited Ventricular Arrhythmias (IVA). This disease, which strikes without warning, has affected some Shiloh puppies and led to great heartbreak for their owners and their breeders. By testing your puppy, you will know if it’s necessary to provide the needed medication to improve their chance of surviving or if your puppy is free from this silent killer.
The ISSDC is proud to be able to assist our members in testing their pup. We offer the use of the Holter Monitor at a greatly reduced cost compared to having this test done by a veterinarian or cardiologist. The rental period is for seven (7) days after received. If you have multiple dogs to test, the rental period may be extended to accommodate your needs with prior arrangement.
Fees will be invoiced via PayPal and the holter will be shipped upon receipt of payment.

HOLTER TESTING REQUIREMENTS
Renter agrees to the following:
- IF you wish to use vet wrap to secure the monitor, you will need to purchase some.
- Check frequently for exposed wires which can be chewed and destroyed.
- Holter test should be done when RENTER is home so that the dog can be supervised and damages avoided.
- The dog should be allowed to perform all the activities of daily living including walks and play. Do not allow rough play that the monitor may become dislodged or damaged. Swimming or bathing should not be allowed as the monitor must be kept dry.
- Submit results to ISSDC holter database at Holterproject@issdc.com
All rental invoices need to be paid-in-full PRIOR to equipment shipping. Payment is to be made through PayPal to the International Shiloh Shepherd Dog Club (ISSDC). Upon submitting your Holter Request, you will be invoiced through PayPal. You will be contacted and the equipment will be shipped to you upon receipt of the completed contract and payment.
