Heart Block (Mobitz Type I) in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Treatment will vary depending on the underlying disease causing the second-degree–Mobitz Type 1 atrioventricular block.  Most of the time however, the affected dog will be otherwise healthy and no treatment will be needed. 

 

Living and Management

 

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