Adult onset neuropathy is a hereditary disease that symptomatically resembles the Degenerative myelopathy (DM). First clinical signs appear at an age of 7.5 to 9 years, visible by an uncoordinated stride and shaky hind limbs. This weakening slowly progresses with time towards the front limbs, which at the end will also result in swallowing difficulties. The neurological disorder seems to worsen within two to four years, but more slowly when compared to DM.
