A 5-year-old intact male Staffordshire bull terrier presented with a history of back pain. He had presented to the emergency service 10 days earlier for acute vomiting. The dog was painful on palpation of the midthoracic spine and abdomen at that time. The dog was treated overnight with intravenous fluid therapy and analgesics. Examination the following morning showed the dog had a deficit in conscious proprioception in the left hindleg and was mildly paretic in both hindlegs. He was discharged at that time.
