This dog was referred for MRI due to cervical pain. The scan showed narrowing of the C2-3 disc (green arrow) space mild bulging and irregulary of the dorsal annulus. There are multiple vertebral malformations along the caudal thoracic spine.
The malformation results in mild narrowing of the verebral canal and as a result there is narrowing of the cord at the level of T8-T10. This cord is centrally hyperintense, probably due to chronic atrophy and gliosis.
