    DefaultLabrador Retreiver Hereditary Myopathy

    I was wondering if any members out there have a lab with this disorder/disease? My 15 month old male yellow Lab, has recently been almost 99% diagnosed and I am wondering about resources for diet, meds, therapies, etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!

    15 months seems very late for a diagnosis and symptoms are usually bad by 4-6 months. When you say 99% is it by symptoms? Has he had the CNM DNA test? If not you need to send for the swabs and do it. Is the dog from field stock? There are some Labs other than field that have come back as carriers, but it is mostly field.http://cnmlabrador.vet-alfort.fr/
