- Genetic Testing For Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy In Cats
Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine has identified a gene responsible for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in some cats, and now offers genetic testing.
- Holter Monitor Project
Project Overview: To examine the utility of Holter recordings of asymptomatic Doberman Pinschers to predict the likelihood of developing dilated cardiomyopathy. Owners will place a Holter monitor on their dogs once a year for the purpose of providing information that may help researchers identify and treat asymptomatic dogs, determine the incidence of DCM globally, and identify early markers for impending development of DCM.
