Spunky presented to Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology on April 27, 2009. At nearly 9 years of age, Spunky has remained an outgoing and very friendly German Shepard dog. Spunky appreciated a 12-month history of progressive pelvic-limb scuffing, weakness and wobbliness. Despite remaining pain free, this energetic companion was unable to experience long walks with his mother.

Diagnosed with a progressive spinal cord condition by Dr. Lane, Spunky underwent magnetic resonance imaging and cerebrospinal fluid analysis to determine the cause. Spunky has been diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy. This is a genetic, pre-programmed spinal cord degeneration for which there is no cure. Regular activity and exercise has been shown to represent the single most important deterrent for rapid progression of this disease. Because of Spunky’s size, this has been a barrier his owner has not been able to overcome. Hydrotherapy is not an option as Spunky is afraid of water.

To help improve the quality of Spunky’s life, a rear support cart has been introduced and provided by Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology. His mother mirrors the happiness displayed on his face. Spunky will now be able to go for long walks without the need for support by his mother. Try and keep up, mom!
