    Sorry, I just saw this message. Thank you for sending this, it makes me feel better to know that others with dogs that have similar conditions are doing well. When I was younger my family dane passed away suddenly from DCM when he was 2, so this disease really scares me.

    I'll have to recheck her holter report, but I don't think there were any VPBs. She hasn't had her thyroid checked, I discussed it with my vet (who breeds dobermans) when we got the holter results and she said she didn't think it was necessary since she didn't look like a dog with thyroid problems (shiny coat that was growing back nicely from the shaved holter areas). I plan to run a thyroid test when she has her annual checkup, or if her next holter results are also very extreme. The cardiologist and my vet wanted me to redo the holter 6 months from the last one, so January.

    You mentioned your dog with DCM but you commented on the SVE's, did she have any VPB's? I have a dog that has AFib and this is her story... On her routine HW check and exam the vet heard issues with the atrial portion of her hearts. We did a ECG, thyroid and holter exam. Her thyroid came back as being hypothyroid. Her first ECG noted Atrial Premature Complexes so a holter was advised In her first holter she had close to 50,000 SVE with singles and pairs. She was started on Soloxine and Diltazem after her first ECG. We reholtered 2 weeks later with very little improvement so we added Sotalol and reholtered 3 weeks later and we had great improvement. We removed the Diltazem-did not think that helped her at all. We retested on 8/10 and we are down to 24 SVE in a 24 hour period. She has been cleared to do all her normal activities.

    If you haven't check her thyroid, I would do that ASAP. Thyroid plays a key roll in a lot of organ function.

    Don't know if my story helps...
