DM Flash Test (Degenerative Myelopathy) - The DM Flash test has been found to be positive in dogs who have been found to have Degenerative Myelopathy as defined in the German Shepherd breed of dogs by the clinical criteria which are consistent in that disease. The DM Flash test helps to confirm that DM is part of the neurologic picture; however, there may be other diseases occurring simultaneously. As such, the DM Flash test should not be used as the sole diagnostic test in evaluating dogs with neurologic disease. It should be used as one part of the diagnostic process.
