Diltiazem is a prescription medication called a calcium channel blocker that works by relaxing the muscles of the heart and blood vessels to help the heart work more efficiently. It is used in the treatment of heart conditions such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, high blood pressure (hypertension), and certain heart rhythm disorders. If your pet has been diagnosed with a heart condition, your veterinarian may prescribe a medication like Diltiazem.
