Dogs Today has started a CDRM support group for dog owners on facebook and today we had a very sad posting indeed.
"I have a GSD with CDRM in the advanced stages and we are able to manage him pretty well. He sleeps most of the time but today he was in the Garden and a woman said she was going to report us for cruelty because the dog couldn't get up. She was peering over the fence and said the dog needs a vet, I said Max is under Vet's supervision, ...it was after this she said she would report us and I'm worried sick now.
"Max has always been a difficult dog but this CDRM seems to have just hit us at the wrong time. He has loads of spirit and doesn't seem to mind being carried with a towel and seems fairly happy in himself but this woman has got me worried I don't want to lose Max nor do I want the RSPCA turning up, I'm so worried today."
