Group Description

This group has been established to provide support to others who are facing this Devastating, Caustic, Menacing Disease ... Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM), which is a hereditary, progressive, and life-threatening heart disease that is spreading far and wide and killing our beloved dogs, the Great Danes, Duitse Doggen, Deutsche Doggen.

You do not have to have a DCM Great Dane to join; however, joining requires participation.

This board is not to be used as a means to attack or defame any one. This board is not to be used as a source for material from with which to flame people or their breeding programs. That's not what this group is about.

We are here to support those dealing with DCM. We are here to support the researchers striving to locate the genetic markers and mode of inheritance. We are here to discuss breeding strategies for reducing the impact that DCM has on our beloved breed.

I have become a warrior in the Fight Against Canine Dilated Cardiomyopathy. I invite you to join me in search for the answers to this health problem.

It is time to be open and honest about DCM. "NO SHAME - NO BLAME. Helping Others, Helps All of Us."

You can help by participating in DCM Research by submitting blood samples of DCM positive dogs, copy of pedigree and Echocardiogram to: University of Sweden DCM Research and University of Pennsylvania DCM Research. Contact information is located in the Files section under DCM Research.
