SS-D in this section especially we try to put a source for information such as that - a link to a website, etc, so that people can read further. Thanks!

Here are some links on Doberman health problems...

Dobe Health Issues
Doberman Pinscher Health Concerns - Canada's Guide to Dogs
Dobermann Health Issues

And German Shepherd health problems...

Health in the German Shepherd Dog
German Shepherd Health Issues - Canada's Guide to Dogs
German Shepherd Health Problems | Dog Breed (German Shepherd) Health Problems

And some info on SIBO/EPI which I'm surprised wasn't really covered in many places given how a large portion of all dogs with these conditions are German Shepherds.
SIBO - EPI * Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency < -SIBO section
EPI - EPI * Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency < - EPI section

I'm not sure if that's what you were looking for or more links that directly explain each problem in depth?

I will make everyone chuckle with this old rumor:.. talking to a very famous Dobe breeder, we were laughing about Dobes "turning on their owners". (I am not talking about rage, mental health issues, just plain old wives tales)
She had a person come up to her , in all seriousness and say" Male Dobes are more prone to turn on their owners because females, when in heat, bleed out the excess blood swelling in the brain during their heat cycles"
Umm, some old wives tales are so outdated, but amazing how long they go on.
I have had Dobes in my lifetime and they were the most gentle loving dogs. This was years ago.
