About The Webinar

Motor dysfunction (paresis) can be “upper motor neuron” or “lower motor neuron” in character and can localise to problems of the central motor pathways or motor unit respectively. Neurological examination findings allow neuroanatomic localisation, formation of a list of differential diagnoses and a plan for diagnostic testing and treatment.
A 5 year old male neutered Labrador retriever presents to your practice as a neurological emergency with non-ambulatory tetraparesis. His owners report this began suddenly and has progressed over the last 2 days. History, physical and neurological examination findings of this case example will be presented followed by discussion of differential diagnoses, results of investigations, treatment and outcome.
If you are viewing live there will be opportunity for interactive case discussion, alternatively there are appropriate points for you to pause and consider the patient in your own time.
