Hi I am a new member looking for anyone who has had a dog with DM - degenerative myelopathy. I have a 12 year old shepherd and am looking for anyone who can offer any feedback. Thanks.

Welcome to the board, TigW. So sorry to hear about your shepherd.

What kinds of therapies have you tried? We had a possible case in an English setter a few years back, but we never got a definitive diagnosis. Exercise seemed to help him, as did massage. We never tried any of the drug/vitamin therapies since we didn't really have a clue as to what was going on until right before he passed.
