I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. I just lost my two dobes to DCM ten months apart. The boy died on the way to the vet. The girl died in my arms after the vet said it was too late. I dont know which death is worse, the unexpected sudden death or the long, slow death.
Spend as much time with your dobe as you can, he is lucky to have you for an owner and that is what he will remember when time comes. Good luck to you.

Hi guys, Holster results showed no Arythmia which is great news right? Appetite back with a vengeance which is great news, but he is still having problems around the waterworks. He is dribbling in his bed over night even though Iím getting up twice. Heís also leaked on sofa this morning even though heíd only been out 20 mins before. Iíve noticed heís dripping when he walks around so Iíve had to restrict where he goes now due to some rooms being carpeted. I just donít know what to do. What will happen if we stop the diuretic? Iím going to speak to vets tomorrow and see what they suggest but things are not really practical as they are poor little man 😢

You might simply buy some belly bands for now, to keep the leaking from making a mess.

Iíve not heard of belly bands before but Iíve ordered some and they should be here today. Thank you so much, this will help no end as I miss snuggling up on sofa with him.
