Heart Block or Conduction Delay (Left Anterior) in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

The form of treatment recommended for your cat grossly depends on the diagnosis and may vary patient to patient. Therefore, correctly diagnosing the underlying cause of the LAFB is paramount.

 

Living and Management

 

Prognosis and follow-up exam schedules varies greatly depending on the underlying disease. However, in cases of severe or advanced heart problems or cancer, prognosis is not good. Consult with your cat's veterinarian in all cases.
