Comments: Our beloved friend and companion has been recently diagnosed with DM. We also mistook it for arthritis or hyp dysplasia. We are totally heart broken. She is currently imobile and we are at a loss as to what we should do. She is still full of life. We ordered a cart today to help her out and enjoy the time she has left. However, sometimes she has down days and then we struggle with the final decision. Thanks for all the info. It really helps to know about what is to come and what we may need to do.

Comments: My GS Jake was misdiagnosed with arthritis, possibly Hip Dysplasis. We are behind in what we should be doing for treatment of DM. Just as you owe Jack Flash your life, I owe Jake mine. Two pit bulls attacked us while out walking. I decided to take one on while he handled the other, but Jake -- Mr. Cool -- actually backed them down and we left w/o a scratch. Thank you and Jack Flash for the inspiration you have given us to continue the fight against DM as long as possible.

Comments: Thanks so much for all this helpful information. I have 2 corgis afflicted with this disease, mother (Emily, aged 13) and son (Mikey, age 10, mother still on her feet but barely, son beginning to show definite signs.
I've been giving them each 2 300 mg timed release doses, 12 hours apart. The improvement is more apparent in mom than son. It's expensive but worth every penny to see Emily exuberantly running down a slight hill, despite her weak and crooked gait.

Comments: My Boxer, Hannah, was just diagnosed with DM yesterday. We have started her on supplements. My vet recommends Gabapentin. Has anyone had any luck with this drug?
********************************

Gabapentin is used for seizures, neuropathic pain ( but in true DM, there is no pain!) bi-polar diorder, and anxiety. Sounds like this is an off label use.

Comments: My beloved collie, Phoenix, has just been diagnosed with DM this past Wednesday. I am devastated and cannot bear the thought of my life without him. This horrible disease is robbing the life of my faithful companion and there is nothing in my power I can do. Phoenix will be 10 in July and I have noticed the last past year that he has slowly been deteriorating. The last few months he has deteriorated more rapidly and it is harder for my baby boy to walk. I cannot imagine my life without him nor can I imagine putting him to sleep but I know that time will come soon. I can no longer walk my Phoenix because his legs are really bad and one of his foot drags as well but for all of you who are going through this, we will all see our beloved babies again when we die and we will kiss and hug them and never let them go. It is then that we will walk with our beloved pets for all eternity.

Comments: We have been learning how to live with Addison's disease and recurrent uveitis in our 2 yr old Siberian Husky since Oct08 and now DM in our 11 yr old GSD. Our hearts are heavy, but our dogs are amazing. They are not sad; they play without the burden of knowing whats wrong. I am thankful for that and to have found such a great site to learn about DM. We ordered boots for our girl today, she can still walk a mile and we want to keep her going as long as possible!

Comments: I'm at my wits end. My beloved Thumper has DM (also "confirmed" with DNA testing), and the disease has progressed rapidly the last couple of weeks. He's losing control of his bowels, and I don't know where to turn.
