Canine degenerative myelopathy (DM) is an incurable progressive neurodegenerative disease of the spinal cord. Neurodegenerative diseases are characterised by progressive loss of neurons in the central nervous system (CNS) which leads to deficiencies in brain function of the affected region. DM is similar in many ways to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in humans.
Most dogs are at least 8 years of age at the onset of the first clinical signs which include hyporeflexia, spasticity and ataxia of the pelvic with progression over time to complete paralysis.
