Dilated cardiomyopathy is a major cause of death in the Doberman Pinscher. This disease affects Dobermans more than any other race. Approximately 40% of the diagnosis of MCD are Doberman, German Shepherd, followed by 13%. Research has shown that race is suffering from an attenuated wavy fiber type of DCM that is affecting many other breeds, as well as an additional type of infiltration-degenerative fat appears to be specific the Doberman Pinscher and Boxer. This serious disease is probably the deadliest in Doberman Pinschers affected.
Through various studies, more than half of the Doberman Pinscher studied the disease. About a quarter of the doberman who developed heart disease died suddenly of unknown causes, and 50 percent die of congestive heart failure, to be more extensive, this disease is more serious doberman pinscher. After diagnosis, the average Doberman not have an estimated duration of survival of 8 months, the time Doberman expected survival is less than two months. Although the causes are unknown, there is evidence that a familial disease transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait. Research on the genetic causes of canine DCM may lead to therapeutic practices and to limit the impact of agriculture.
