What is the Expected Progression of Degenerative Myelopathy in Dogs? Is It Fatal?

Yes Degenerative Myelopathy in dogs will eventually be fatal

Degenerative Myelopathy is a horrible medical condition, and it often eventually leads your dog to be almost completely paralysed if it progresses. 

If you think your dog has Degenerative Myelopathy, you must take your dog to the vet immediately for a confirmed diagnosis.

If your dog has Degenerative Myelopathy, many dog owners purchase dog boots to give their dog extra grip on slippery surfaces or wooden floors, but dog boots importantly also protect their paws from damage. There have been great stories of dog owners putting their dogs in wheelchairs, this has a transformative effect on your dog’s quality of life.
