Delayed neurological sequelae after smoke inhalation (case report)
Smoke inhalation and the sequelae to several organ systems are well known to most veterinarians. This recently published case report from the University of Florida describes a dog developing neurological signs four days after a house fire.

A 1-year-old Australian shepherd dog was found unconscious in a house fire. Although recovery after initial therapy was reportedly complete, the dog`s condition acutely worsened 4 days later and progressed to stupor and non-ambulatory tetraparesis with subsequent pneumonia.

After successful therapy, the dog regained full neurologic function after approximately one week.
Thus delayed neurologic sequelae may occur in dogs after smoke inhalation (and presumably carbon monoxide) injury. Neurologic recovery can be complete and sustained, even with severe central nervous system dysfunction.
