    I have a 2 year old European Doberman. I imported her from Altobello in Serbia. Since her arrival in Colorado, she has had trouble with incontinence. I noticed that she would urinate and defecate in her crate when in a deep sleep. I had originally attributed this to her not being...

    Happy Friday all, and very sorry in advance for the long post! So here is my doberlady’s story: Years ago, my parents got two doberpuppies from South Africa and brought them to Mozambique, where we live.

    Hi, I'm looking at purchasing a doberman puppy in a few months, and I've been doing some research about doberman health issues. Bloat sounds really scary, and I was wondering whether it was very common among healthy dobermans? What can you do to prevent it? One website said that heavy exercise...

    Hi everyone :) Have any of you experienced your pups vomiting bile in the middle of the night? Every since we brought him home he vomited bile once a week at 3-4 am. Now he does it every night. I moved his feeding times to 7am, 2pm, and 10pm. The vomit is always clear and never has any solids...

    Hi- we just got our first doberman, Gimli, about a week ago. He's 3 months old and came to us with his dew claws removed. My concern is that where the dew claws were there is a scar with a small, sharp, hard protrusion sticking out of it (see attached picture). If it were dark, I would think it...
