Misty had to have another ECG and ultrasound scan today because she had a second dizzy fit a couple of days ago. It showed that her heart is a little enlarged compared to when she had the last tests in September following her first dizzy spell. As the specialist doesn't know whether the erratic heart beats are causing the heart to enlarge, or whether the heart enlargement is causing the erratic heart beats, Misty has to wear a heart monitor for three days minimum and preferably a week. This is so they can monitor her heart during her normal activities. So it's strapped to the top of her back with three sensors attached to her skin. The whole lot is covered with her nice new T-shirt to keep everything in place and make sure she doesn't catch the leads on anything and pull them off. I also have to keep a diary of what she's doing, for instance resting, barking at strangers (doesn't happen often!) eating, running, out for her walk etc. etc.
She's very conscious of it at the moment and keeps trying to shake it off but it didn't effect her appetite as the photo shows! But she won't settle down at the moment and keeps wandering around. I think we'll both be glad when it's off but I'm a bit worried about what the results will be.
