Great Danes are predisposed to osseous-associated cervical spondylomyelopathy (Wobbler syndrome). Thefirst aim of this prospective study was to compare values measured using previously published intravertebraland intervertebral ratio methods and a novel ventrodorsal ratio method in radiographs of clinically normal andaffected Great Danes. The second aim was to determine whether these ratios could be used as predictors of sitesof spinal cord compression based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
