A 9-month-old male German Shepherd dog was examined for decreased exercise tolerance, enlargement of the abdomen, and groaning when forced to move. The signs developed over a 3 week period. Ausculation of the thorax revealed muffled heart sounds. The EKG recordings had markedly decreased amplitude, with intermittent premature ventricular contractions.
