Computed tomography (CT) myelography is used occasionally in the diagnosis of cervical spondylomyelopathy,but the type of lesion found in large- versus giant-breed dogs using this modality has not been characterized.Our purpose was to report the frequency of compressive lesions in large- and giant-breed dogs with cervi-cal spondylomyelopathy and imaged using CT myelography. Fifty-eight dogs were retrospectively studied,23 large-breed and 35 giant-breed dogs. Multiple sites of compression were found in 12 large-breed dogs(52.2%) compared to 30 (85.8%) giant-breed dogs.
