Myelin Sheath is a substance that insulates the spinal cord. It is a white, fatty substance that surrounds and protects the nerve fibers around the spinal cord.
The loss of this substance is believed to cause nerve deterioration including delayed or blocked nerve direction between the brain and the dog’s body.
When this substance breaks down, it becomes harder and harder for the neural impulses to move down the spinal cord to the dog’s hind end. This glandular includes proteins thought to play a vital role in producing Myelin, which is important for preventing the destruction of the dog’s own Myelin.
