Caude equina syndrome in dogs - who is at risk?
Cauda equina syndrome (CES) is a common orthopedic problem in dogs, affecting especially male dogs and large breeds. This very informative study including several thousand dogs gives interesting new informations: For example, a lumbosacral transitional vertebra predisposes for CES, and German Shepherds are eight times more likely to develop the CES than other breeds...

The association between the occurrence of a lumbosacral transitional vertebra (LTV) and the cauda equina syndrome (CES) in dogs was investigated.

In 4000 control dogs without signs of CES, 3.5% had an LTV, while in 92 dogs with CES, 16.3% had an LTV.

The lesion causing CES always occurred between the last true lumbar vertebra and the LTV.

Dogs with an LTV were eight times more likely to develop CES than dogs without an LTV.

German Shepherd dogs were eight times more likely to develop CES compared with other breeds.

Male dogs were twice as likely to develop CES than females.

Dogs with an LTV develop CES 1–2 years earlier than dogs without an LTV.

Patient-specific facemask to facilitate brain biopsymembers
The objective of this pilot study was to describe the application and first preliminary data of a novel MRI and CT compatible patient-specific facemask for stereotactic brain biopsy of intracranial lesions in dogs. Five client-owned dogs presenting for neurological deficits consistent with forebrain disease were included in the study. All dogs had MRI findings consistent with an intracranial lesion. But biopsies in this region are not easy to obtain. Does an individual face mask help?
