No consensus exists on the best treatment for dogs with CSM (wobbler syndrome). Surgical treatment is commonly recommended, with several techniques having been described,1–3 on the basis of the theory that alleviating spinal cord compression in dogs with CSM will result in an improvement in or at least a stabili-zation of clinical signs. In contrast, medical treatment has generally been suggested to provide only transient benefits in dogs with CSM, with progression of clinical signs expected because the primary lesion is not directly addressed.1,4
