Cervical spondylomyelopathy (wobbler syndrome), Doberman

Cervical spondylomyelopathy (wobbler syndrome) in a 6-year-old Doberman Pinscher. This illustrates the disc-associated form of the disease. Note the tipping (dorsal deviation) of the craniodorsal aspect of the body of C6 relative to the caudal portion of C5. Often, these lesions are dynamic, and compression of the spinal cord worsens with changes in neck position.
