WSU veterinarians seek puppy volunteers in exchange for ice cream

Washington State University's Veterinary Teaching Hospital have come up with the perfect study for those who love puppies and ice cream.

Cardiologists in the program need up to 100 puppy volunteers for a 24 hour cardiac study. Thanks will be given to the puppies' owners in the form of Ferdinand's Ice Cream.

“The goal of the project 'Puppies and Cream' is to determine the normal cardiac values for puppies between the ages of 3 to 11 months when they wear a non-invasive Holter-type cardiac monitor for 24 hours,” said Pamela Lee, a WSU veterinary cardiologist. “There is currently no standard data for normal healthy puppies that age even though the Holter monitor is commonly used as a diagnostic tool for adult dogs.”

A Holter monitor is a battery-operated device that can measure and record the heart's electrical activity (ECG) continuously for 24 hours or more. It has wires with small conductive pads that attach to the skin.

Puppy volunteers will receive a complete physical examination free of charge, and will need to have five spots shaved to allow the monitor's conductive pads make good contact.
