Spooky Woods Black Maori - wild type
Jotunheim's Thor - wild type
Jotunheim's Pandora - wild type
Interpretation of results:
This is not a normal Genetic test, but rather a risk factor assessment. Dobermans with both mutant and carrier genotypes are at a statistically higher risk to develop DCM. Dobermans with the wild type genotype are at a low risk.
