Family Dobes -Stephen Parsons litter from 12/4/2013

We just lost our 6 y/o Dobe today. She was her usual self Monday afternoon running and chasing the frisbee at the park and then became acutely ill that evening- she vomited and would not eat dinner. She still would not eat yesterday morning so we took her to the vet and found she had a fast heart rate and high blood pressure and her kidneys were showing signs of failure. She was given IV fluids overnight and did not improve this morning. At 10 am her heart rate was 284 beats per minute and she was subsequently diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia and DCM by chest X-ray. She never showed any signs of heart failure and was an otherwise healthy energetic girl. We adopted her when she was 11 months old from a coworker of mine who purchased her as a puppy. They gave us her paperwork and she is one of Stephen Parsons pups from Family Dobes in Utah. After googling the breeder today (we wanted to reach out and notify them of her diagnosis in case it could help prevent this genetic trait from being passed on) I discovered that this Breeder has been identified as being less than reputable and is apparently no longer in business (which sounds like a blessing). Anyway I just wanted to share our girls story in case there are any of her litter mates out there that could be helped in anyway knowing about her diagnosis. She was born 12-4-13 and her dam was Belona Von House BlackBerry and sire was Obi-wan Kenobie De Grande Vinko. Our hearts are broken.

I am very sorry for the passing of your girl. This is not an uncommon way for our Dobe kids to go.

We lost a Doberman male a few years ago under similar circumstances... V-Tach due to DCM. As a result, today my current boy gets an annual cardiovascular work-up and we carry a quality canine insurance.

Again... My thoughts are with you.

Perhaps when you feel up to it, you could share some photos and stories of your girl. They would be very welcome.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. I am in Utah and sadly have heard several more cases similar to yours. I am so relieved to know he is not around anymore.

My heart aches for you and prayers for your comfort. My baby Squirrel is almost 7.5 yrs old and last July was diagnosed with DCM/CHF and 3 years ago Cushing's disease.
She is on so many meds but all worth it to keep her with me every single day that God allows. My heart stops every time she runs after a real squirrel out her doggy door but I know that is what makes her happy.
Her breeder also "disappeared" when I tried to let him know about some early hip dysplasia and her Cushing's so I didn't try again with the DCM.
I know what the future holds and I break down hugging her all the time, so I'm sure she thinks I'm crazy!
So I am hurting for you, praying for you and praying for all of us who love our pups so much.
God be with us all and you will see your baby again!!
