Another disease you should ensure you screen your Doberman Pinscher for is Dilated cardiomyopathy which results to the enlargening of your dog’s heart. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a common disease among different breeds but affects the Doberman the most. The causes of the Dilated cardiomyopathy remain unknown, but recent studies point towards a genetic trait in the disease formation.
Whether you own a Doberman Pinscher or you intend to buy one, it is important to ensure you prioritize veterinary visits to keep track of your pet`s health. Also, avoid dealing with breeders who do not have complete medical records of their Dobermans as this might lead to the late discovery of potentially chronic ailments once you adopt or buy your pet.
