Holter Request

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 you in testing your 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. Generally, the rental period is for seven (7) days after received, but with prior arrangement if you have multiple dogs to test, the rental period can be extended to accommodate your needs.

Fees payable to ISSDC through PayPal
The following is a breakdown of the costs you should expect associated with testing your dog:

Equipment Rental Fee (includes monitor, protective box, vest, vest pocket, velcro strap, card reader, two memory cards, clippers, a Supply Kit for one dog) $25.00 US

The rental period is 7 (seven) days upon receipt of equipment package.  

Breeder rental for multiple pups is 7 days (1 week) per puppy with prior arrangement. Breeder will be sent a sign up sheet to list each puppy receiving the holter in the rental period, owner’s name, contact information and the schedule for testing. 

Renter agrees to return the equipment (monitor & protective box, a clean vest & pocket, velcro strap, card reader, 2 memory cards, hook-up chart, data transmission guide, and clippers) to the ISSDC in the condition you received them at the end of your rental period.

Late Fee of $25.00 per week will be assessed for late return of the holter kit.

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.
  • 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

RENTER agrees to pay the ISSDC the total in advance.  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 notified and the equipment will be shipped to you upon receipt of the completed contract and payment.
