So you've just gotten the news from your veterinarian...
they "diagnosed" that your dog may have DM...
We are here to let you know that while this is not a path we've chosen, we too have gotten this dreaded news & know how you are feeling (HUGS). We are here to help you! There IS hope and your pup can still live their best life with you! Like with people that have been diagnosed with ALS & other neurological illnesses, it's all about how we chose to respond.
First of all, this is likely a "pathofunctional diagnosis" in that they have ruled out the other likely possibilities that this disease can be known to mimic.
Some veterinarians have experienced DM first hand while others may not have even heard of this disease being that there wasn't a genetic test available until 2008.
ShadeOutDM support group on facebook is here to help you thru your journey (There is NO cost to become a part of this community!)
We do have several veterinarians that generously donate their time to monitor discussions as well as several owners that have taken the DM journey with multiple pups too. You're not alone, this loving community is here to help support you at all hours around the globe.
