I lost my Boxer to DM she came down with it at 8.5 years. You determine DM by ruling everything else out.

A sure sign is dragging a rear foot. You can hear the toe nails clicking as they walk... early onset, But if she does the foot flip thing OK...don't know?

DM is rampant in Boxers so lots of info there:

I'm Gunther over there.
