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 if you have multiple dogs to test, the rental period can be extended to accommodate your needs.
Fees payable to ISSDC through PayPal

HOLTER TESTING REQUIREMENTS
Renter agrees to the following:
- 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.
