Can I use fix nvt/sllod in DPD system?

Hello, LAMMPS users. I am considering to simulate shearing DPD flow using the fix nvt/sllod command. I know that in the SLLOD equations the velocities are peculiar velocities. But in DPD (dissipative particle dynamics), the force on a particles is dependent on its laboratory velocity. Would this situation render the fix nvt/sllod unsuitable for dpd pair style? Thanks in advance.
