Degenerative Myelopathy

Recommended Posts

In the Merck manual they mention it is most common in German Shepherds over 5 years, and other large breeds, may be hereditary, and has a poor prognosis. A friend who breeds Shepherds says it is difficult to determine whether it is the build up or the break down of the spinal column which contains the spinal cord. The dogs start with weak hind limbs, and the prognosis is poor since there is no treatment.
