Thank you. We will keep him going for as long as we can, or perhaps I should say, for as long as he wants. We are hoping that it will be slow in progressing, but with the rate it has moved so far we are not too sure. frown

Charlotte,
I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. It’s everyone’s worst fear… There is a DM support group and a website with lots of information:

http://www.mzjf.com/main.htm

There’s also a Yahoo DM group:

http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/degenerativemyelopathylist/

I love what it says on there. “Remember, there IS life after a diagnosis of DM. It's just a little different.”

Sandy's (AgilePaws) Starine is using a cart and doing well with it. Check out her avatar!

Hoping for the best for your Max… hugging

Clemmons has a supplement protocol out there that some have reported good success with. I have also thought that the supplement Alpha Lipoic Acid should help prevent further deterioration of the nervous system.

There is some information here: http://www.germanshepherdhome.net/forum/....html#Post48612
