Yes. My Quincy had high BP and needed to be checked many times to find the right BP medication dosage. The vet used a BP device like the one on the video.

They used to check Farley's BP all the time, while he was awake and sitting up (usually on the counter in the back). I suspect he was a bit restless. He never had a BP issue, but because of his kidney issues they always checked it.

Quincy was awake when they checked his BP. Quincy is a very mellow buff cocker and they would lay him on his side on the exam table. The vet would take his BP about three times see if the reading stayed the same or went up or down.
