About The Webinar

Paralysis is the most severe form of weakness and is most commonly due to a disease of the spinal cord. The speed of onset of the clinical signs, their duration, the presence of associated pain and most importantly the severity of the signs are all predictive factors for the type of the disease that could be present. In this webinar, Professor Simon Platt discusses the assessment of the weak or paralysed cat and dog so that you can feel comfortable with using the neurological examination to both localise the underlying disease and predict the prognosis. We will also look into specific diseases, including disc disease, trauma, neoplasia and inflammation, and address their diagnosis and treatment.
