Canine multiple system degeneration (CMSD) is a fatal autosomal recessive hereditary disease. First clinical signs develop at 3 to 6 months of age, and include cranial intention tremors, cerebellar ataxia, goose stepping gait and infrequent falls. Clinical signs become more severe with the disease progression and include frequent falling episodes, akinesia and severe postural instability. Affected dogs are usually euthanized by 1-2 years of age.
