My 9YO was also diagnosed with DCM about 2 months ago, she collapsed twice and wasn't eating, when she did eat she would vomit immediately. We took her to the dog ER, the preliminary diagnosis after an x-ray was DCM. We took her to the cardiologist, they did ekg and x-ray to confirm the diagnosis. She had a murmur (which is now gone, after meds). After 2 months on meds(abit price, about $200.00 per month) she is doing great. I'm hoping for this course of treatment to extend her life for 2+ years (I'm an optimist). Best of luck, as others have said, a proper diagnosis from a cardiologist and meds are the way to go, sooner rather than of luck!
