A pacemaker was implanted in a 12-year-old German Shepherd with complete heart block. The transvenous ventricular pacing lead detected auricular activity using a pair of atrial electrodes. In the VDD-R mode, atrioventricular synchrony and rate adaptative pacing were obtained. The relief of all clinical signs and ECG controls demonstrate the efficacy of this type of pacemaker in the dog.
