Zorzi Doberman with heart failure
My family and I adopted a beautiful, sweet female Doberman from the Zorzi kennels in December of 2006 (she was born October 24th, 2006). She was an integral part of our lives until yesterday (May 9, 2012), when she developed pulmonary edema, severe difficultly breathing and respiratory distress - we ultimately were forced to put her down within hours of her diagnosis (primary heart failure).
She has always been healthy, of a lean build and has been a "runner" her entire life. There were absolutely no indications that her health was compromised which made the news from the vet all that more devastating.
I have contacted the Zorzi kennels to let them know of our experience in the hopes that other families can have their dogs tested for evidence (on x-ray)of heart failure - again, our dog had NO symptoms that ever indicated we needed to have x-rays done; I wish I had known.
