|A 10-year-old, male, mixed-breed dog that developed cervical pain and neurological deficits was diagnosed with primary lymphoma of the second cervical vertebra.
The cervical lesion was not surgically resectable.
A dorsal cervical hemilaminectomy was performed to provide temporary decompression.
The dog had complete pain relief after surgery but was euthanized 6 weeks later with recurrent clinical signs and evidence of lymphoma in the right femur.
