Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy is the common form of dilated cardiomyopathy. The fantasy of keeping Labradors as pet is increasing day by day and the population of this breed was little higher when compared to other breeds presented to Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital (MVC), Chennai. The incidence of dilated cardiomyopathy in this breed is more than other breeds. The confirmation of this disorder is done by echocardiography which showed increased internal diameter of left ventricle during systole and diastole, increased left atrium and aorta ratio, reduced fractional shortening and increased end point septal separation.
