Heart Block (Mobitz Type I) in Cats



Treatment will vary depending on the underlying disease causing the second-degree–Mobitz Type 1 atrioventricular block. Cats that are diagnosed with this condition are often given a guarded prognosis, as the condition will progress without intervention. A pacemaker may be necessary.


Living and Management


Your veterinarian will guide you through a health plan for your cat that emphasizes the necessary diet and activity guidelines that will effectively treat the underlying cause of disease, if one is present.
