Comments: Our year old Shepherd "Ritter Von Todd" is in late stages of this hiddeous disease. He is more or less down now, but will not give in. Vet gave him a month or so to live, that has long since passed and he is still with us. The spark may have dimmed but its still there. He gets all the treats he wants, apart from the right to eat our cat. Custard cream bickies and choccy covered raisens are his all time fav foods, and lets face it that will not kill him any faster than DM.

Comments: My 14 year old English Springer Spaniel appears to have DM. My vet said he thought she had it a few months ago; but I guess I was in denial until I read more about it today on the Internet. She exhibits all of the symptoms including crossing her hind legs and sometimes curling her hind toes under. She has good days and bad days, and she still gets very frisky at meal time and even still wants to play with her toys with me most days. She seems to feel fine other than losing control of her hind quarters. She has also had a few accidents in the house lately (#2) which is highly unusual for her. It seems weird that I haven't seen anything about this breed having DM; but I want to do everything I can to maximize whatever time I have left with her.

Comments: My beloved first dog and best friend Grover was diagnosed with DM just yesterday. My husband and I are incredibly upset as Grove is only 16 months old. Grover has a beautiful kind and loving soul and has been such a great friend to me and my family. Unfortunately Grove already has front and rear weakness and is slowely losing control of his bladder. Our neurologist has suggested that we will only have to weeks to months left with our beloved friend and so this site has encouraged and supported me through this awful news. Grover will be truly loved and spoilt for as long as we have the absolute pleasure of his company. Thank you for this web site and the help and inspiration it has given me. Love you Grove!!
********************

From Marjorie: Please take your dog to another vet- DM does not affect the front until the dog is totally down in the rear and it it does not affect 16 month old dogs. This is an incorrect diagnosis! You say you saw a neurologist-PLEASE get a second opinion! What you have described is not consistent with DM!

Comments: My dear female white shepherd Tundra was diagnosed with DM on September 24. I have put up a CaringBridge website, written Dr. Clemmons, ordered Dr. Schoen's books, and bought ingredients for RMC's dog diet,which I'll cook for the first time tomorrow. Please tell me more about the group

Comments: My 9 year old german shephard was diagnosed with DM in October 2008 by a neurologist. My vet is one of the few on the list of knowledgeable vets listed on the link for vets (Dr. Cole)....and I would recommend him to anyone in the area. He helped me from the beginning. King is to the point where he can no longer walk and he will pull himself from area to area. We have a cart from Eddies Wheels that he loves!! I just wish there was a way for him to wear it 24/7. This has to be the most heart wrenching disease around. The thought of putting your best friend down and their mind is still fully intact pulls at me to no end. I will hope and pray for a cure for this horrible disease. Until then, King and I will do what we can to keep him happy.

Comments: This weekend was one of the worst of my life. I had to put my best friend down. Tyson was a 14 year old German Shepard who had a battle with DM for the past 2 years. Last night he became ill and we rushed him to the vet only to find his stomach had turned. Vet said due to his age and his condition (almost no use of his rear legs) she didn't feel that he would survive surgery. What an awful choice to have to make. He was in so much pain. He drifted off in mine and my wifes arms. I'll miss him dearly. Thank you for all the info your site gave me over the past couple years.

Comments: Hello,

Our family dog has DM and is in the stage where he cannot get up and support his weight without our help. Which he needs especially around meal time. He's only just had his 8th birthday this month. I wish you all the best in finding a cure or putting a stop to this disease.

All the best,
Cassie

Comments: Thank you for taking the time, and having such a compassionate heart to make a site like this to help support those who are struggling with this painful diagnosis in our beloved pets. Bless you and Jack for all your information and efforts. Our pug of 9 yrs has been officially diagnosed as of last month, and we are trying to do the best we can for him to make his remaining time as comfortable as possible - with the emphasis on quality of life... not quantity. Hydrotherapy has always helped his arthritic hips, so we will continue this, as we search for more ways to help him cope. Happy to have come across this site on the anniversary of Jack's passing. It is bittersweet, but I'm sure he is glad to know his legacy is still noble and helping so many others, every day. He is a special soul.
