About The Webinar

Chiari-like malformation (CM) and syringomyelia (SM) are recognized in many small breed dogs. The
terminology used to describe these conditions has been adopted from similar disorders in humans. In dogs,CM is characterized by herniation of the cerebellum and medulla into or through the foramen magnum (FM). The clinical signs often include some form of pain but are generally worse if there is a significant SM in the cervical spinal cord. This session will attempt to clarify what this disease is all about, how to suspect it, how to diagnose and treat it and what the latest breeding recommendations are.
