Heart Block or Conduction Delay (Right Bundle) in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Treatment is directed towards treating underlying cause.

 

Living and Management

 

This condition itself is not life-threatening and treating the underlying cause results in complete resolution of problem. However, if left untreated, RBBB can lead to more severe heart rhythm changes or even complete heart block.

 

You may be required to take your pet for regular follow-ups exams to evaluate the status of disease and the cat's response to treatment. No diet modifications are necessary, unless required to manage underlying condition.
