The story of Maggie's Rescue
NEW DNA TEST FOR DEGENERATIVE MYELOPATHY (DM) New DNA test accurately predicts probability of degenerative myelopathy (DM) in German Shepherds Good news! There is now a genetic test for DM, priced around $65, which can be ordered and administered by owners through the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals --no vet appointment necessary. This test will predict with a high level of confidence if your dog (1) is likely to develop DM, (2) will not develop DM, or (3) is a carrier of DM, but will not develop symptoms.
Prior to this test (created primarily at the University of Missouri-Columbia and Harvard) DM was diagnosed only by excluding other diseases such as spondylosis or a tumor. Now, a long emotional and financially draining diagnostic process can finally be replaced with one simple cheek swab.
