Heart Health and Dobermans

For everyone involved with Dobermans it is common knowledge that Dilated Cardiomyopathy is prevalent in the breed.  We do the best we can with the tools at hand to selectively breed this condition out of our lines but it is not always possible to control the future based on the past.
I am very pleased to provide the following reports on GCH Dillon's Zipper Ripper CD (Zeus) and Dillon's Stroke Of Midnight (Wiley).  The reports are the results of a 24hr Holter monitor test I did a few weeks ago.  The Holter monitor is the same test done on humans to determine heart conditions.
