Read About The Clinical Trial We Helped Fund
This multi-site clinical trial is the first of its kind in researching and testing treatment for canine Degenerative Myelopathy (aka Doggie ALS). We teamed up with these 4 Universities and the AKC to bring this trial to fruition. Hosted by some of the nation's top veterinary universities, we are excited about moving forward to find a treatment for DM.
Everyone is Bubba's Buddy
Our beloved Bubba is a 10 year old Boxer. In 2020, we began noticing signs of Degenerative Myelopathy (DM). He captures the hearts of those around him, and his fight against DM has been no different, inspiring others around him and battling the odds everyday.
Many types of therapy are available with varying reviews, feedback, and success. Bubba has found much success in water therapy which strengthens muscles and muscle movements to combat nerve degeneration.
Loss of coordination from DM caused Bubba to be more clumsy. Falls and mis-steps caused shifts and mis-alignments which were reversed and treated with chiropractic care. This makes such a huge difference in his day to day!
We found supplements to be an important part of keeping Bubba strong though his fight. Arthritis, ligament damage, and pain are common for DM pups. We found a variety of supplements key to his day to day function and health.
Love and Support
DM is not for the faint of heart, and that means for your pup and you both, you're their rock. Some days are good, some days are not. Love, encouragement, support, and understanding is key to mental health to keep going.
