Treatment of abnormal heart rhythms in dogs

Sep 8, 2020

Description: ARVC (arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy) is a disease that affects both humans and dogs, particularly Boxer dogs and Bulldogs.

Dogs with ARVC typically are prescribed life-long oral drugs to help control abnormal heart rhythms.  In contrast, people with arrhythmias might undergo a surgical catheter procedure that targets the abnormal heart tissue making it unable to produce abnormal rhythms.

Participation: Our team, in collaboration with doctors from Penn Medicine, is recruiting dogs with severe ARVC that are interested in this type of procedure.
