Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most commonly diagnosed supraventricular tachyarrhythmia in dogs. It typically develops when atrial enlargement occurs secondary to underlying cardiovascular disease. Electrocardiographically, AF is characterized by disorganized atrial electrical activity resulting in an absence of P waves and a rapid, irregular ventricular rate. The hemodynamic consequences of AF include decreased cardiac output and the development of clinical signs of heart failure. Therapeutic… CONTINUE READING
