The most common heart problem in horses is murmurs, and they can be found in all types of horses: athletes, pasture pets, broodmares, and foals.  A physical exam, an ECG, and an echocardiogram are the tools we use to evaluate horses with heart murmurs and determine whether or not the murmur is significant.  Horses can also develop arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation that need evaluation and treatment.   Sometimes horses with intermittent arrhythmias may need 24-hour Holter monitoring, and internal medicine can coordinate that as well.
