    Nobody has tried any kind of therapy for DM?

    Do you have experience with this Sherry? If many people have tried it, why do I not hear from them?

    Nobody has tried any kind of therapy for DM?

    JF - thank you so much for sharing your experience. My girl is only 8 years old. Like me, you wanted to give your pup every chance and doing nothing is not easy as you know. We had a consult last night and they offered up what sounds like the same therapy plan. I know what is in store for us...

    Nobody has tried any kind of therapy for DM?

    I realize all of that I just thought that maybe someone on Boxerworld may have at least tried to preserve their DM diagnosed dog's quality of life by trying therapy and I really thought that of all places this is where I might have found someone to share their therapy experience with me.

    Nobody has tried any kind of therapy for DM?

    I can' t believe that of all the people on here not one person had tried some form of physical therapy for a furbaby with degenerative myelopathy. I know it is not a cure but I read that it could possibly keep them on their feet a little longer. Nobody had tried this???

    Slowing down recently

    Usually when there is a significant change in a dog's behavior, something is wrong. Is there anything else going on? Drinking more? Coughing? Shortness of breath? Have you noticed any unusual odors?

    DM therapy

    Have any DM parents done therapy of any kind and did it help? Accupuncture, PT, hydrotherapy, etc.?

    It could be the heart. Sounds like syncope. From what I have gone through recently, there is usually some level of disorientation following a seizure where with syncope they recover quickly and are right back to normal when the episode is over.

    Corneal ulcer - have you heard of this form of treatment?

    It can be very nerve-racking but my girl has had it done to each eye and all went well! Good luck!

    He ate a bar of soap

    My Harley did that when he was a youngster! I took and a nap. When I woke up and went to the restroom, I noticed that the water was running in the sink. I thought it was odd but noticed nothing more. Then, he threw up. He was puking bubbles. It was then that I realized that he stole the...

    Boxers and Snow

    My girl is NOT a fan of the snow and cold. She has a sweater to wear if it gets to be 30 degrees or lower and only wears it when she goes for a walk. She has a doggie door, and will only choose to go out when absolutely necessary if it's cold out. My boys didn't mind it so much. Gino even...

    Our 9 year old Boxer has late stage DM

    I'm so sorry to hear of your baby's troubles :( Like most say, it's usually time when the bad times out number the good. It's a tough call even if it is the best thing for them. Thoughts are with you in this hardest of times.

    Large bump on right front leg

    Could be a few things. Best thing to do is have your vet examine it and possibly get a sample of it.

    Boxer loosing hair

    A second opinion and maybe even a dermatologist should be obtained. She could have a couple of different things going on.
