Abstract

An 8.7-year-old 34-kg (74.8-lb) sexually intact male Labrador Retriever was referred for evaluation because of a 3-month history of signs of progressive, severe neck pain. The dog was treated with an injection of meloxicam and, after a 3-day interval of no treatment, by administration of prednisolone and omeprazole and exercise restriction for 4 weeks. One week prior to the referral evaluation, tramadol administration was also added to the treatment plan to address the exacerbated signs of pain. On evaluation, results of a general physical examination were unremarkable apart from tensing of the abdominal wall during palpation.
