DCM Research


Volunteers are still needed for our research into dilated cardiomyopathy in Great Danes at The University of Liverpool.

We are screening from 4 years – so if you have a Dane 4 years or older WE NEED YOU!!

A contribution of £50 towards all tests is required by the owner on the first visit.

We are also sending out Holter monitors to be fitted to some dogs 1 year or older. This is an EGC monitor (not the same as a heart scan). This will provide us with much needed information about arrhythmias (palpitations) in Danes.

This Project has the support of your Breed Council and Breed Clubs.
