You will have to go to the cardiologists to have one put on your dog.  They need to shave the spots and hook up the electrodes in the appropriate spots. It usually costs about $300 for the 24 hour long monitor recording session.  My dogs haven't seemed to mind the inconveinence.  Fortunately the machines are much smaller now than the first few times we had to use one.  I have been to NCSU for this and they are quite nice.  They will probably want to do an ultrasound first, unless you've already had one done.  That runs about $300 or so.  You must suspect cardio problems or you wouldn't be looking in this direction.  I have been thru the heart problems, so if you have any questions, I will help with answers on what I know.
