Abstract

An 8.5 year-old neutered Pomeranian female dog presented with non-ambulatory tetraparesis underwent computed tomography that revealed calcified disk extrusions at C3-C4, C4-C5 and C5-C6 intervertebral spaces, causing severe extradural compressions. A triple ventral slot decompression surgery was performed. The dog regained ambulation after surgery with only mild deficits remaining.
