Journal of Small Animal Practice 27(3): 147-158

The diagnosis of brachial plexus disorders in dogs a review of twenty two cases

Conditions affecting the brachial plexus in dogs are described. The clinical details of 22 cases are reviewed, of which 16 were traumatic lesions and six were tumors. The salient features of the neurological examination which provide the diagnosis and the signs which reveal the extent and nature of the lesion are described. The role of other ancillary diagnostic aids including electromyography, radiography and myelography are discussed.
