Rocky Mountain Biewer Terriers are DNA tested for Degenerative Myelopathy (DM).
Degenerative myelopathy (DM) is a progressive neurological disorder that affects the spinal cord and nerve cells in dogs. It is a degenerative disease, which means that it gets worse over time, and it is not curable.
DM typically affects older dogs, usually over the age of 5-6 years old. The condition is caused by a genetic mutation that affects the myelin sheath surrounding nerve cells in the spinal cord. This can cause the nerves to degenerate over time, leading to weakness, loss of coordination, and paralysis.
Rocky Mountain Biewer Terriers are DNA tested for over 200+ conditions and diseases.
