DM Flash Test/discospondylosis

Is Dr. Clemmons still doing the flash test? The test info page doesn't appear to be on the Univ. of Florida website. At least, I can't find it.

Re: DM Flash Test

I hope all is ok Sandy!

https://www.vetmed.ufl.edu/patientca...ces/neurology/

At the bottom of that website:

For more information about Degenerative Myelopathy and the DM Flash Test, please visit the Neurology department's web site, http://neuro.vetmed.ufl.edu

Re: DM Flash Test

Thanks Barb. Unfortunately, the last two links won't open for me. It must be my computer so I'll have to wait until DH gets home with his laptop.

Last December/January, Star saw neurology at UW for what they determined to be very mild neuro symptoms. Well, the symptoms aren't mild anymore. She has an appointment for x-rays at my new vet on Oct. 3. I'm going to ask her to take the flash test sample then. I decided to start with my vet first rather than UW this time.

I've been in a complete state of denial lately.

Re: DM Flash Test

Thanks Val and Barb.

I've opened the links on two computers and it's only a page that says DM Flash test FAQ with a brief summary. That's all I was able to find yesterday too. There used to be several pages including one with detailed instructions on how to take a sample and submit. Guess I'll have to email them.

Re: DM Flash Test

Thanks Lisa. I found the info on free testing available at the University of Missouri. I'll give it to my vet to see if we're eligible.

Re: DM Flash Test

I think that's a different test? There seems to be some controversy on the differences between the two tests. If you can get the test free though, I would do it!

Yes, I've read about the controversy and I'm staying away from the politics of it all. I just want a diagnosis and if helps get me an answer for free, that is good. And I'm always for helping contribute to research if I can.
