Comments... I had Dr. Coat's DM test done while the test was in its early stages--as far as I knew it was not offered by OFA at the time. I don't have the exact wording of the result handy, but my dog's test came back as definitely positive. My dog had already been diagnosed with DM by our vet, I just wanted more confirmation that he had it--looking back now, I was probably still in denial that I was losing my boy.
