What is the HYM Hypomyelination ?
The HYM is a disease found in Weimaraner dog. This neurological disease causes a delay in the response time of the myelin. The symptoms of the disease appear at the age of 2 weeks. The intensity of the symptoms varies according to the puppies. The puppies show tremors specifically in hind legs. The tremor episodes are more common during periods of exercise, of excitement, or during maternal breast feeding.
