Does anyone have information about a blood test for detecting cardio predisposition in Dobes? I have heard it mentioned, but did not get details. I believe it would be a screening used along with a holter.

The test is called Canine Cardiocare. It doesn't really test for DCM predisposition, that would require a gene test. The test apparently is able to detect a peptide that occurs with heart failure at a very early stage.
