Hi All,
I am working on capturing data to help with DM research (degenerative myelopathy). Those of you who have had a DM dog know how hideous this disease is with no cure and not a lot in the way of treatment. Watching a healthy beloved furkid slowly become paralyzed and not being able to do much to stop it is a nightmare I will never forget and do not wish on anyone.

We really need surveys from non-DM GSD (as well as DM GSD of course) to make the data meaningful. Please, please, anyone with GSD - whether DM or not - can you take just a few minutes to fill out the survey and help the fight against DM?

Thanks in advance - this is so important for the health of GSD who have been affected for too long and too often by this insidious disease!

Hi,
Thanks for your reply!

This survey is being done in collaboration with Dr. Clemmons and hopefully the data will benefit his research. It is essentially his survey I have posted online. The hard part (as always) is getting enough data to be a reasonable sample size.

Thanks!

Tamar
