Chuy went to the vet on Tuesday 6/29/16 for his annual check up. Other than his missing left front leg, the missing left rear hip joint, the Legg Calve Perthes Diseases, he is fairly healthy. Only one new thing for our dear boy. It is official that he has been diagnosed with DM, (Canine degenerative myelopathy). The vet did a few neurological tests on him after I told him how Chuy tends to fall down alot and how he crosses his back legs when he is laying down, (the bottom one over the top one). Chuy has been doing this for about a year now and I had a feeling it was DM but figured we would just wait as there is no treatment or cure for it. Last year we thought this may be what it was, but things have gotten worse. I can’t believe this, he has been such a trooper throughout his life. I am grateful he has been a part of ours as he truly has been a gift to us. We can only hope to have a few more years with our sweet 8 yr. old boy.
