The clinical signs worsen slowly over succeeding weeks. The hindlimbs often are spread wider apart than normal, causing the hindquarters to sway from side to side. The hindlimbs may not fully extend, causing a crouched posture with the toes scuffing on the ground with each step. The degree of forelimb involvement varies from no observable abnormality to an obvious stiffness and awkward use of the forelimbs. In mild cases, or early in the disease, these signs may be most obvious as the dog turns corners, and may be less apparent when the dog walks or runs along a straight path. An abrupt change in speed or direction may exacerbate the neurological signs.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″]

Cervical Disc Arthroplasty (CDA)

Cervical Disc Arthroplasty is currently the best available option in people with cervical disc disease and it is finally available for dogs with wobbler syndrome. Biomechanical and clinical studies using the 3rd generation Adamo Spinal Disc™ in dogs with wobbler syndrome showed the superiority of CDA when compared to other standard surgical techniques. Other recent clinical studies demonstrated that CDA had long term 91% success rate and no occurrence of domino lesions.

Less invasive, than traditional surgeries
Rapid post-surgical recovery
Can be performed on an out-patient basis (patient is able to be released from the hospital and go home the same day or the very next day after surgery).
Can be performed at multiple adjacent and not adjacent affected sites
Provide distraction/mobility at the treated sites and prevents “domino lesions”
