how fast does this diease progress?Will vit. help?
Most affected dogs gradually loose function in the pelvic limbs and reach a non-ambulatatory state within 6 mo to 2 years after onset. There is no proven treatment that is effective. A proposed treatment is a combination of exercise, vitamin supplements and epsilon aminocaproic acid (Amicar,Lederle, NY; 500 mg orally every 8 hrs mixed with a hematinic compound) Good luck, vetcare
